John W. of Marin asks: “I participated in the Jensie Gran Fondo last Saturday. Four bicyclists were struck by a motorist, apparently intentionally, as they were riding. What is the law regarding the punishment of a driver in a road rage situation like this?”
On Saturday October 14th the Marin County Bike Coalition will be hosting their annual fall bike festival. Biketoberfest is a fun-filled event with over 70 exhibitors, a bike show, and a variety of craft beers to sample. This family friendly event brings all types of cyclists, and others together to celebrate and support the MCBC and the work they contribute to the cycling community.
On Saturday October 7, a beautiful Indian summer day in Marin, approximately 1,300 cyclists gathered to ride through the rolling hills of Marin to support the Marin Bike Coalition in its annual Jensie Gran Fondo. As the day went on, what started as a fun-filled day turned to tragedy when the driver of a blue Dodge Ram pickup allegedly swerved to the right and struck 4 bicyclists knocking them to the ground and then sped off. The hit and run collision is the worst injury in the event’s history.
This week’s question comes from Tina S. in Noe Valley who asks: “I think that I am being paid less than the 2 men who are doing my same job. I work in Menlo Park and there is a lot of talk about gender equality but I don’t think it is being put into practice at my current job. We all have MBA’s and started at the same time. One of the men is my same class but the other worked in finance before getting his MBA. What is the status of the law and what can I do to find out if I am being discriminated against.”
