Bikers vs. Cabs: Williamsburg Bridge

Here's what went down: At the base of the Brooklyn side of the Williamsburg bridge, there's a spot where cars, especially cabs, drive over the sidewalk when they don't feel like waiting in traffic on the bridge to Manhattan. So, they drive head-on into cyclists coming off of the w-burg bridge bike lanes. There are accidents all the time from cars hitting cyclists at this intersection, and it's even worse when the cars are driving over the sidewalk. Was watching this tonight, when some heroic cyclists decided to take matters into their own hands and put up a barricade.
