State Rep. Miller promotes 'Bike Month'

During a state Capitol rally Tuesday designed to promote May as "Bike Month" in Pennsylvania, 
state Rep. Ron Miller, R-Jacobus, announced details of a pair of bills designed to promote bicycle 
safety in Pennsylvania.

"Bicycling is great exercise and an effective, efficient mode of transportation, 
and Pennsylvania has miles of beautiful countryside that can be enjoyed on two wheels," 
Miller said. "We need to do all that we can to promote the activity and protect bike enthusiasts 
through legislation that makes it safer for them to enjoy their sport."

Miller's bills are as follows:

--- House Bill 1109 specifies that any driver who knowingly maneuvers his or her motor vehicle to 
intimidate or harass a cyclist or pedestrian, or any driver or passenger in a motor vehicle who directs
 threatening gestures or language at a cyclist or pedestrian, commits a second-degree misdemeanor.

--- House Bill 1110 establishes a minimum four-foot safe passing distance, at a reduced speed when 
possible, for overtaking bicycles on the highway. It also prohibits drivers from making sudden right 
turns in front of a cyclist proceeding in the same direction.

Thomas J. Quigley
State Representative
146th Legislative District
