  1. I cannot attend, but would be most interested in the MPD explaining what constitutes a "hit and run," aka if you touch someone's vehicle with a gloved hand after they cut you off to avoid falling onto the vehicle then that's a "hit and run." Some clarity on the question posed on Bike Arlington forums a few weeks back about a vehicle making a right turn where a cycletrack is located--does the vehicle have to proceed into the cycletrack lane to make the right from a stop sign or could they make the right from the non-cycletrack lane? The law is fairly vague here.


Thank you for your comment.
