PA's Safe PAssing Bill Scheduled for Senate Vote

At long last, HB170 has been scheduled for a vote in the Senate! This is Pennsylvania's long-awaited state-wide safe PAssing bill. Harrisburg may be poised finally to put the PA in safe passing for cyclists.

HB 170 requires motorists to give cyclists four feet of room when passing. If passed, it will move Pennsylvania into the ranks of states who provide cyclists with more protection from passing motor vehicles.

HB170 is on the Senate calendar for Tuesday, January 17, 2012. Please call your Senator one more time to urge him/her to pass HB170 with no amendments. You can find your Senator's office phone number by keying in your address here.
