Most laws and regulations that affect your riding are made on a statewide level, and involve a lot of tough conversations about crafting legislation, enforcement, education, and insurance. To help step us through the process of creating bicycling laws, and to see how they are implemented in the real world, we're inviting State Senator Will Brownsberger (Second Suffolk and Middlesex District) and Josh Zisson a lawyer from Bike Safe Boston for an informational webinar.
Join us on July 7 for an hour discussion of presentation and Q&A with the Senator to answer your questions about the status of certain bills such as An Act to reduce traffic fatalities and An Act relative to automated enforcement, and with Josh to hear of examples from his profession dealing with the aftermath of crashes on our roadways.
This webinar is free and open to everyone, so please be sure to RSVP and we'll send out a Zoom invitation.WHENJuly 07, 2020 at 12pm

Alan Wright commented on COMMENTARY: Will Crashes Spark Tactical Suburbanism? 2016-08-23 13:03:05 -0400Richard – excellent post! The recent crashes have stirred conversation on many of the ride group forums such as Crack o Dawn. Now to get them to join MassBike & BCU in addition to all the effort they put into raising money for cancer, etc.
Alan Wright commented on Two Crashes Draw Increased Attention to Suburban Bike Accommodations 2016-08-22 15:51:57 -0400Part of the problem is the lack of charges against negligent drivers. This is a failure of the District Attorneys to either file charges or obtain grand jury indictments. The truck driver that killed a cyclist in Wellesley a few years ago was not indicted due to a failure of the DA to get the jury to indict despite the clear negligence of the driver. Likewise, Suffolk County DA Conley has failed to indict the truck driver that killed Anita Kurman over one year ago. The bicycling community needs to make this an issue in the DA re-election campaigns.
