Access to Justice for Bicyclists Act Passes D.C. Council

Bike Laws[B' Spokes: We need this in Maryland!]
By Shane Farthing, WABA

The passage of this law is a big victory for D.C. bicyclists, as it will allow those who are intentionally assaulted on our roadways to seek redress in court. It will also bring consequences to motorists who inflict harm upon cyclists for using roadways. Too often, these cases have slipped through the cracks because criminal charges are not brought and the cyclist cannot afford legal representation. Thus, those who assault cyclists suffer no consequences.
