Bicyclists File to Defend Bicyclists' Rights

The League of American Bicyclists and leading bicycling clubs in Kentucky filed an Amicus brief in the Kentucky Supreme Court, March 28, 2005 to defend the rights of Kentucky bicyclists on the Commonwealth's roads. The case arose from a jury decision that a bicyclist seriously injured by a passing motorist (pulling two trailers) should not have been there and should have stopped and gotten out of the way while the motorist passed. The case was joined by the Louisville Bicycle Club, Ashland Cycling Enthusiasts, Bluegrass Cycling Club, Bowling Green League of Bicyclists and Chain Reaction Cycling Club in Paducah.

The filing was prepared by Victor Maddox, a member of the Louisville Bicycle Club and partner in the firm of Tachau Maddox Hovious & Dickens, PLC in Louisville.
