I don't think it's quite open season on cyclists yet. Dolkart's conviction was thrown out on a technicality, that the instructions given to the jurors were incorrect. Keep in mind she's a law professor, so it's not surprising she and her lawyer found some technicality to appeal the conviction.

Since prosecutors plan to retry her if they lose the appeal of the appeals court ruling, she's not quite out of the woods yet. If the case is retried, hopefully prosecutors will do their homework and make sure the jury instructions follow the letter of the law.
