Bryan Waldman Speaks at TCBA Meeting
On January 30, 2014, Michigan bicycle attorney Bryan Waldman, partner at the Sinas Dramis Law Firm and leader of the Sinas Dramis Bicycle Law Group, spoke at the Tri-County Bicycle Association’s (TBCA) monthly meeting at the Foster Community Center in Lansing, Michigan. His presentation provided an overview of the rules of the road, no-fault insurance issues as they relate to cyclists, and other general legal issues of interest to cyclists. TCBA members seemed particularly interested in a discussion regarding Bryan’s representation of John Lindenmayer, Advocacy and Policy Director at the League of Michigan Bicyclists, regarding an “impeding traffic” citation.
An avid cyclist for over twenty years, Bryan is in a unique position to both explain these issues as well as advocate for the recognition and inclusion of the ever-growing bicycling population in our local community. In addition to representing numerous cyclists injured by motorists while legally riding on Michigan roads, Bryan received the League of Michigan Bicyclists’ “Bicycle Advocate of the Year” Awardlast spring, in recognition of his dedication and willingness to give back to the bicycling community.
