Points for Bikes ? Who knew ?!!? Lawyer Landau surveys Herndon Bikers
After racing in the Winchester area, Herndon injury lawyer Doug Landau visited Great Harvest Bread for some treats before heading to the office. The TriathlonTrialLawyer surveyed cyclists coming in from the W&OD Trail for free samples and carbs during their weekend rides to see if they know that they could get points on their DMV driving record for infractions on their bicycles. None of the bikers questioned knew that they could get points.
Even Landau’s friend and Great Harvest owner Jack Corkey was surprised that bikers ticketed for moving violations could get points in addition to large fines and court costs. Evidence tends to suggest that the Cycling community is not well-informed as to the penalties and serious ramifications on their motor vehicle privileges moving violations and tickets while riding their bikes can bring in the Commonwealth of Virginia. That is why Herndon injury, disability and bike crash lawyer Doug Landau has been traveling to venues where he can speak with bikers, multi-sport athletes and bicycle tourists about issues of safety, communication and the law.
