Our Legal Precedents, Advocates and Focus on Egregious Near Misses
In addition to providing our free Incident Management System, below this section, we also take on select cases to set legal precedents that all cyclists can leverage. When a case is selected, we represent our member as their Advocate and intermediary so they can remain anonymous if desired, as in our Glendale case and our recent member who was assaulted in Castro Valley. We also deconstruct and time-slice their video evidence to reveal hidden details in incidents that often last only a few seconds. Lastly, we work with law enforcement so these cases are correctly cited and potentially prosecuted. Throughout the process we share all lessons learned via our email list and on this site so all cyclists can leverage our work and precedents.
Below are posts explaining why we focus on egregious near misses, Assault and Reckless Driving, and our legal precedents. If law enforcement tells you that they have to "On View" all incidents or cannot cite an egregious driver without a collision you can show them our precedents and contact us.

Why Use Our Free Incident Management System?
Our Focus is Enforcement
The recently released Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) report “A Right to the Road Understanding & Addressing Bicyclist Safety” concludes that “While engineering solutions are key, states and communities simply cannot build their way out of the bicyclist safety problem; roadway improvements must be accompanied by education and enforcement to be most effective.” The report goes on to state “the number one reason why people do not ride a bicycle is because they are afraid to be on the road with motor vehicles.”
Police Do Not Always Accept Incident Reports
Even if your incident report is accepted there is no online public access
Even if your incident report is accepted there is no online public access to your Incident Reports and you cannot search by license plate number to learn if you were assaulted by a repeat offender.
Many times police do not cite drivers for egregious incidents
Enter, Track, Analyze, Update, Map, Generate PDF Reports and search for repeat offenders
Our free Incident Management System allows cyclists Enter, Track, Analyze, Update, Map, and Generate PDF Reports of their Assault and Reckless Driving Incident Reports from the moment they occur. It also allows cyclists to document their progress through the local law enforcement departments and court system to final conviction, should one occur.
Cyclists can also search by license plate number to learn if you were assaulted by a repeat offender before collisions occur.
Jurisdictional Risk Patterns
We will also be able to identify Jurisdictional Risk Patterns: Jurisdictions where law enforcement does not provide cyclists equal protection under the law by citing and prosecuting drivers for egregious assault and reckless driving incidents.
Provide Police and Government Near Miss and Perceived Risk Data
It will also allow police departments and cities to identify repeat offenders as well as hot spots by location, time of day, day of week, and month of year so they can optimize their allocation of limited resources to increase cyclist safety.
Or research report documents that the main reason cyclists stop cycling is not collisions, but rather, near misses. The main reason non-cyclists do not become cyclists is perceived risk which is corroborated by the GHSA’s report. This will be the first near miss and perceived risk data available and is critical in changing law enforcement and government's focus from collisions to near misses and perceived risk.
