Pa. Senate Considering Bicycle Safe-Passing Law

January 18, 2012

HARRISBURG, PA – The Pennsylvania Senate is considering legislation that would prohibit a motorist from passing a bicyclist unless there's at least four feet of space between the vehicle and bicycle. A total of 19 states already have similar "safe passing" laws, which are aimed at protecting the safety of bicyclists traveling on public roads.

The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has already approved the bill.

The legislation would permit motorists to cross the double yellow line on a two-lane road if necessary to ensure the required four-foot clearance. The bill would also prohibit a vehicle from making a right turn that impedes the path of a bicycle.
