What should you do if you're right hooked by a driver when riding? Do you have to stay to the far right in the vehicle travel lane when riding? What if someone opens a car door and steps out and you bike into them? Can cops really take a kid's bicycle if they're not wearing a helmet?...
We've heard a lot of questions about how to interpret the laws pertaining to bicyclists and bicycling in Massachusetts, and we gotta admit it's a bit confusing when you dig into the Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 85, Section 11B. To help us understand some of the nuances, we've invited bike lawyer Josh Zisson from Bike Safe Boston to host a discussion of the rights and responsibilities of all road users out there. For this hour-long event, we covered the laws, what can happen if you break them, and what you should know if you're ever in a crash.

And special thanks to Josh for sharing his experiences, wisdom, and expertise. You can check out Josh's website to learn more at https://bikesafeboston.com/

And if there is an accident with a car, doesn’t the lack of a deflector not weigh in with litigation?
If so – what gives?
