A Port Washington woman was cited for failure to yield the right of way to a pedestrian or bicyclist after an Oct. 8 incident near Lincoln Elementary School, according to police.
Police said a 46-year-old Port man was crossing James Drive near Theis Lane on his bicycle when a 28-year-old woman who lives in Port Washington came around the corner and nearly struck the man.
A witness told officers the woman came “flying around the corner” and the man had to get off his bike to avoid being struck, police said. The man, who reported the incident to police, gave officers the license plate number of the woman, adding he has had issues with her in the past, according to authorities.
The woman said she was waiting for the man to cross the road, but when he stopped she proceeded down the street, police said.
