Washington County: Come learn the Rules of the Road!

Hope to see you on September 5th for Ray Thomas' presentation!

Hope to see you on September 5th for Ray Thomas’ presentation!

Curious about your rights as a road user? Always wanted a definitive answer about a burning question you have on traffic safety? Interested in meeting more folks from across the region who are participating in the Bike Commute Challenge?

Bicycle/pedestrian legal specialist (and good friend of the BTA) Ray Thomas will be giving a presentation in downtown Beaverton at 4:00pm on Thursday, September 5 on “Rules of the Road.”  

Thomas is no stranger to Oregon traffic law; he (literally!) wrote the book on the subject. Event attendees will leave with a free copy of the Eighth Edition of Ray Thomas’ “Pedal Power: A Legal Guide for Oregon Bicyclists,” as well as an opportunity to ask questions about how Oregon traffic law has been interpreted, how to bike and walk safely and legally across the region, and what to do in case of a collision.

Ray Thomas’ presentation is brought to you by Partners for a Sustainable Washington County, the Westside Transportation Alliance, and the Bicycle Transportation Alliance as part of our initiative to promote the Bike Commute Challenge. (Are you registered yet?)

The event is being held on the 3rd floor of the Beaverton Round Executive Suites, located in the Beaverton Round at 12725 SW Millikan Way. Ray’s talk is free and open to the public, and is held in advance of the Bicycle Transportation Alliance’s upcoming Bike Commute Challenge. The Round is accessible by TriMet via the Blue and Red MAX Lines (Beaverton Central Station) and is walking distance from TriMet bus lines 20, 52, 53, 54, 57, 58, 61, 76, 78, and 88 arriving at Beaverton Transit Center.

Looking forward to a good time and an informative discussion; hope to see you there!
