A New Project
Welcome to OregonBikeLaw.com, a public service project of Swanson, Thomas, Coon & Newton. We have launched this web page in an effort to improve the understanding of how the laws contained in Oregon’s Vehicle Code (and elsewhere) establish the rights and responsibilities of all of Oregon’s road users. We will be examining specific locations and their legal quirks, answering questions, and publishing informative analysis of certain laws.
This project follows in the tradition of the many years of bicycle and pedestrian legal clinics we have presented in conjunction with many community groups, businesses, municipalities, and schools, as well as our articles, publications and Ray Thomas’ books Pedal Power and Oregon Pedestrian Rights.
Our authors will include three lawyers at Swanson, Thomas, Coon & Newton: Partners Ray Thomas, Jim Coon, and Cynthia Newton and Associate Charley Gee.
We also hope to provide insights and commentary from other authors in the community.
If you have any questions about Oregon bicycle law or Oregon pedestrian law please email Charley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
