HARRISBURG
– At a celebration of Bike to Work Day in Harrisburg, Rep. David Maloney (R-Berks) called for action on his legislation to create a “Share the Road” license plate to raise awareness about bike safety.

“Biking to work or school, or to run errands, is a great way to go. It’s good for our personal health and for the environment,” Maloney said. “But riding a bicycle safely on roads and bridges can be a challenge, so we must be vigilant in our effort to improve the safety of our riders.”

Maloney’s House Bill 1415 aims to do just that by not only raising awareness but also raising money to support the position of bicycle and pedestrian coordinator within the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and to fund highway pedalcycle signs. The fee for the special plate would be $40, and it would be available for certain cars and trucks, as well as motor homes.

The bill passed the House unanimously in February and is now awaiting consideration in the Senate.

The Bike-to-Work Day event was held in conjunction with the Spoke ‘n Gear Bicycle Expo.
