Right Of Way members today completed a fifty-mile memorial ride, stenciling at eight locations in four of the five boroughs, for children under eight years old who were killed by automobile this year. More details here.

October 11, 2013 -- After some years of dormancy, Right Of Way is in the process of being reconstituted, with a membership comprised of some old-timers and an abundant infusion of fresh blood. This clunky venerable site will soon have a new look and new content (as well as the archives from our earlier incarnation). Stay tuned!

This is the Right Of Way home page. Right Of Way is a group of activists dedicated to asserting the rights of car-free street users -- including pedestrians, cyclists, and skaters -- and fighting back against car domination. Our home base is New York City, but we hope to report on, and help stimulate, action and awareness in other locales as well.

A fuller account of our outlook and intentions is in our manifesto.

Our activities to date include:

The website will contain essays, research, rabble-rousing, and reflections on car culture and the car economy, and on ways to cure these pathological conditions.

Wondering about, or annoyed by, the phrase "cars suck", which you may see from time to time around here? Read some thoughts on the subject.

Inquiries or comments, either about the site or about the project overall, can be directed to
