You Can Use DC Bike Share to go to the Office of Workers’ Compensation
While nearly every worker who comes before the DC Workers’ Compensation Board would not be able to avail themselves of the DC Bike Share program, some might decide this is an economical, environmentally friendly, and fun way to get to the Wisconsin Avenue hearing location on good weather days.
Doug Landau tried a case earlier this week before the compensation judge, on a day when bicycling would’ve been a nice option.
The temperature was in the 70s, the sun was in the sky, and the hearing was in the middle of the day.
He might even have had a better time over the last several miles, due to the traffic jam on the Rose Avenue exit leading up to the Minnesota Avenue government building.
Lawyer Landau intends to ride his bike to court in the future, and has done so for pre-trial motions in Leesburg. Loudoun County Circuit Court is not far from the W & OD Trail, which runs right by the Abrams Landau office.
With his shoes, his files, and other items — including his laptop — in a backpack, Landau simply stows his helmet in his backpack when he gets to court!
