This 13 year old boy, entering eighth grade, was riding home from his Alameda County middle school on 8/10/22 at 3:10 pm when was assaulted twice and severely recklessly endangered by two drivers. It was his first time riding with a camera mounted on the back of his new e-bike so the lens is smudged. The roads have parked cars on both sides so he has to be careful to avoid getting doored. There are sharrows on the street marking where cyclists should ride since there are no bike lanes. There are many signs indicating these are school zones.
His middle school has a student population of 1,400. On his way home he also rides past the other middle school with a population of 780.
Please watch his video below and thank him for riding with a camera and helping to make Alameda County streets safer by documenting these egregiously dangerous drivers. You can leave your comments and thoughts at the bottom of the post.
