Pennsylvania Bicycle Laws — 6 Laws All Cyclists Should

3 hours ago

1. Bicycle Helmet Laws. Not all states in the nation have a law regarding whether or not cyclists must wear a helmet. In Pennsylvania, the law does not require adult cyclists to wear helmets; it also disallows using helmet use as evidence of the cyclist’s contributory negligence, per Pennsylvania Pa.
2. Permitted Riding Areas. The law makes specific provisions for where cyclists may operate their bicycle. You can ride on the shoulder or on the travel lanes of the roadway.
3. Lighting Requirements for Bicycles. Many bicycle accidents occur at night, which means cyclists could prevent many of them by simply using the proper lighting.
4. Right-of-Way Laws for Cyclists. Since bicycles (or pedalcycles, as the law refers to them) are vehicles under Pennsylvania law, you have to follow the same right-of-way laws that drivers do, including yielding to pedestrians.
5. Rules Regarding Operating Your Bike. There are a few more rules regarding how you can operate your bike that you should know. First of all, you have to ride on a regular seat.
6. Riding while Under the Influence. It should go without saying, but to reiterate: you do not want to ride your bike while intoxicated. The fact that a bike has no motor does not lessen the dangers of driving under the influence.

Bicycle Helmet Laws

2 hours ago

1. Here is a link to a formal study on the effect of bicycle helmet legislation on bicycling fatalities. Consumer Product Safety Commission staffer Greg Rodgers has published a study concluding that the presence of a State law increases helmet use by 18.4 per cent. New York State reported that since it introduced its first helmet law in 1989 for passengers under 5, and its second in 1994 for riders under 14, the annual rate of cyclists hospitalized from bicycle-related traumatic brain injuries fell for the under 14 group from 464 in 1990 to 209 in 1995. The rate for cyclists 14 and over for the same years declined less rapidly, from 454 to 382. There is no way to determine exactly what proportion of the improvement was due to helmet laws, since there is no data on improvements to bicycle facility safety, rider education or total miles ridden in those years, and helmet promotion campaigns by Safe Kids Worldwide and others were active in the state. But it is likely that increased helmet...
