Chris Thomas and Cynthia Newton presented their bicycle legal clinic entitled “Moving Toward an Active Healthy Community” at Portland’s Alta Planning + Design on April 5. The clinic covered basic legal principles of Oregon law applicable to bicycles (and pedestrians), and guidelines and best practices for roadway riding (on streets with and without bike lanes), crosswalk and bike cross usage, and sidewalk riding, plus how best to address hazardous situations involving navigating around buses and large vehicles and car doors. Chris and Cynthia also shared tips about how auto insurance comes into play when cyclists are injured in a collision with a motor vehicle and how to handle crash and claims situations. The clinic included plenty of back-and-forth with Alta staff, many of whom work daily to design bike- and pedestrian-friendly urban environments. Check out their work here: https://altaplanning.com/.
