Tips for Cyclists: How To Avoid Bicycle Accidents

If you’ve read my posts about bicycle accidents before, checked out my blog, or even browsed my website, you know that one of my greatest goals is to reduce injuries and fatalities due to bicycle collisions, through making persons and companies and public entities accountable when they needlessly endanger bicycle riders, and also through advising about safer bicycle riding. The statistics are shocking: 100 or more people per year die from bicycle collisions in California alone. This number is deplorable and should be drastically reduced. How can we as bicycle riders and bicycle lawyers work toward reducing bicycle deaths, and…

Bikes v. Pedestrians, the Debate, and Your Thoughts?

As my clients know, I’m not just a bicycle advocate, and not just a pedestrian advocate, I am a safety advocate. And when we’re navigating the busy (and sometimesdangerous) streets of San Francisco, safety is much more important than whether we are walking, pedaling, or driving.

In our community, we have rules for good reason, and we should all be following them.   Unsafe cyclists have been a recent target in the news, with many…

Marin Headlands Bicyclists Soon Will Enjoy Safer Roads

I am happy to report to San Francisco Bay Area bicyclists and motorists alike that Project Headlands is well underway.

Napa Doctors Concerned About Bicycle Accident Rate

Napa doctors have expressed concern about the rise in Napa County bicycle accident injuries and deaths. As a Bay Area cyclist, I love to ride in the Wine Country. You can find great roads, great hills if you want them and great long level rides if that suits you. But, like many rural areas, Napa has its share of danger for bicycle riders as well. With the exponential increase in popularity of the Wine Country comes more traffic congestion. And let’s not forget the tourists who frequent the Wine Country to sample the fantastic wines available. They may not all…
