Megan Olendorf from the public relations department of Avvo.com gave us the heads-up on a cool event they’re hosting this week:
This Wednesday, April 28 at 11AM PT / 2PM ET, Avvo (www.avvo.com) is hosting a free Q&A session with a lawyer who can address everything related to Bike Law.
Here is the link to sign up: http://nakedlaw.avvo.com/law-101/
Essentially, people can call in from a telephone or join in over their computer. If they have a legal question but can’t make it next week, they can also send in their question ahead of time. We’ll be sure to ask it and then send the recorded answer after the session.
We think it’s a great opportunity for bikers facing a legal issue to get some free help, or more importantly, raise awareness to prevent legal issues in the future.
This is a great idea…and if this event is successful, they’ll repeat it. I’m sure we’ve all been stumped by some of the more esoteric points of our areas’ laws and our rights/responsibilities as road-using cyclists, and an opportunity to get some free legal advice is always a good thing. Tune in and check it out!
