Steve and I had plenty to talk about, so we broke this Episode out into two parts. Enjoy Part 2 where we pick up where we left off – with a discussion of “impeding” under Ohio law. Keep in mind bicyclists are motorists and part of traffic. Just because a bicyclist is slower than traffic in most instances does not mean that the bicyclist is guilty of impeding the traffic behind him or her. There is a seminal case that Steve argue through the Court of Appeals which changed the legal landscape for Ohio cyclists. We begin our discussion with that case and move on to additional areas of Ohio law.
Bike Month is quickly coming to an end. It seemed fitting to interview my friend, collaborator, and colleague, Steve Magas, Esq., the Ohio Bike Lawyer. We had a wide-ranging discussion of all things bike laws in Ohio. In fact, the interview was so wide-ranging we had to break it down into two episodes! So please join me for Part 1 of my interview with Steve!
