Paratransit Unfair Fair Increase

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Pedestrian Accident Lawyer. Recently, decision-makers from Sacramento Regional Transit (RT) debated a proposal with members of the community that would raise the cost of a ride on Light Rail. The same proposal would effectively eliminate the paratransit monthly pass. This is sad news for disabled folks who are on limited incomes and do not have the transit options available to them that other members of the community have. To learn more about the concerns presented by the community:

bike sidewalkIs it legal to ride bikes on sidewalks in Sacramento?  Well, the answer is: it depends.  According to current California state law, cities and counties are able to regulate whether or not bicycles are allowed on sidewalks.  While it is legal to ride a bike on the sidewalk in some parts of the greater Sacramento area, in other areas it is prohibited.

Areas in which bicycle riding on sidewalks is uniformly prohibited are Folsom, Galt and the central business district of Davis.  Other areas have mixed rules.

Sacramento: Sidewalk bicycle riding is legal in residential areas on along designated bike routes. Bicycles are prohibited from sidewalks in commercial areas with the exception of certain employees that may obtain permits through the City.  Sidewalk riders must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians.

bikeA quick YouTube search of “dash cam” will elicit many returns of auto accidents captured on video.  Similarly, many motorcyclists utilize helmet-mounted cameras, such as Go-Pros to record any incidents.  More and more, bicyclists are following suit.  A cyclist injured in a crash could have been recording his or her ride via a GPS-enabled computer when the incident occurred. Modern technology enables a cyclist to record the following data from satellite navigation systems identical to those used in our vehicles:

  • Latitude and longitude
  • Elevation
