A judge on Tuesday ruled against an effort by Brooklyn residents to remove the highly debated Prospect Park West bike line that was installed last summer. Two groups, Seniors for Safety and Neighbors for Better Bike Lanes, had argued that the lane violated a state law that prevents governments from making arbitrary actions. The judge's ruling was a significant victory for the city and its transportation commissioner, Janette Sadik-Khan, who countered that the installation was entirely proper. The city said it had sought and implemented input from the community when the bike path was installed and that the statute of limitations under that law had already passed. [NYT]
