bicycle riderChemung County Sheriff Chris Moss and I recently taped a public service TV program about bicycle safety for Chemung Valley Health Watch.

The video is airing three times a week during April on Time Warner Cable Channel 1:

  • 7:30 p.m. Mondays
  • 7:30 p.m. Fridays, and
  • 8:30 a.m. Sundays

Chemung Valley Health Watch asked us to to be a part of the program to raise awareness about bicycle safety. As a self-proclaimed “bike nut,” I was happy to oblige! My contribution was to explain some of the civil and criminal legal ramifications if a car strikes a bicyclist.

It was an honor to be on the show with Sheriff Moss, and I want to encourage everybody to watch the video during one of the broadcasts this month.

We’ll also be posting the video to the Ziff Law Firm website so it will be available all through the summer cycling season. You may also be interested in the specific category of “Bicycle Accidents” here on the NY Injury Law Blog.

One last thing – I suggest checking out the Elmira-Chemung Transportation Council’s “Traffic Safety Brochure.” The council has included a section, “Sharing the Road,” specifically about the bike/car traffic regulations.

Thanks for reading – and watching!
