"Cyclists everywhere can use Bicycling & the Law to actively protect their right to the road. You can find good advice for any problem you face as a cyclist-from protecting your bike against theft, to fighting a traffic ticket, to prosecuting harassers like the one who tried to run me over."

Every day, bicycle riders encounter the challenges of commuting in traffic, over-enthusiastic dogs, road hazards, traffic codes, harassment, road rage, theft, and property damage. If you ride a bike, this is the book you've been waiting for. Bicycling & the Law is the first and only book of its kind: a legal reference for bicyclists of all types, written from the cyclist's point of view by a practicing attorney and former Olympic cyclist.

What steps do I take to solve the problem?
