Elected officials and advocates came together Thursday to discuss some of the biggest transportation issues in Brooklyn at one of the many meetings of its kind across the state.

Cyclist Dulcie Canton wants to make sure what happened to her in 2014 doesn’t happen to anyone else. She says a Chevrolet Camaro hit her from the rear going around 40-50 mph while she was cycling. She broke her right shoulder, her left ankle and had a concussion.
Jeremy Laufer, who is on the Manhattan Community Board 7, said that traffic in the borough could affect the economic activity on both local and regional levels.
