Last year, the City settled a class action lawsuit with 83 cyclists who were wrongly arrested by the NYPD during Critical Mass rides and this week the checks totaling $965,000 were sent out.
Bike advocacy group Time Up estimates that the final costs of the NYPDâ€™s aggressive campaign could exceed $3 million, but that hasnâ€™t influenced the police to change their tactics and judging by their presence at last monthâ€™s ride, theyâ€™re still running with the heavy handed approach.
