Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

So what would happen if the lanes on Queens Boulevard were reduced to nine feet wide?

Whoever designed it would be open to losing their engineering license, and would potentially be liable for damage or injury caused by being sideswiped by a truck.

That would bring two sections of the law into conflict with each other (the one defining Queens Boulevard as a Through Truck Route, and the one prohibiting vehicles wider than 96 inches in lanes narrower than ten feet).

The part of the law specifically mentioning 10 foot wide lanes also specifically excludes New York City.
