Oregon Bicycle Law in the News

Two of our contributors were recently featured in news articles about Oregon bicycle law:

Ray Thomas explained the law regarding flashing bicycle lights for The Oregonian’s Joe Rose, specifically how the Oregon statute prohibiting flashing lights on motor vehicles does not apply to bicycles.

Charley Gee was quoted in Michael Andersen‘s‘s story about Uber’s illegal launch in Portland and the insurance implications of being hit by an Uber driver.  Vehicles operated by Uber drivers do not carry the levels of insurance that traditional commercial and cab companies do.
