Right of way

ALBANY, N.Y. — New York’s highest court upheld New York City’s “ Right of Way” law as constitutional in a suit brought by a truck driver and bus driver who were cited under the law for killing a pedestrian and a bicyclist, respectively, who had the right of way. The city may enact ordinances criminalizing conduct against the public welfare even if such conduct does not involve conscious wrongdoing.
