Pennsylvania bicycle laws

Pennsylvania has laws that protect bicyclists on the road. Drivers must leave four feet of space when passing a bicyclist. They may only pass at a reasonable speed.

It’s the obligation of the driver to leave four feet of space, not the bicyclist. Even a driver that suddenly opens a door can injure a bicyclist. That’s why it’s always the responsibility of the motor vehicle driver to leave enough space for bicyclists and be aware of their surroundings. If the driver violates Pennsylvania laws that protect bicyclists, the violation can be strong proof of your claim.

If you’re injured in a bike accident and the driver violates one of these laws, the law violation may be strong evidence of negligence. That just means that the fact that the driver violated a law can be strong proof that you deserve financial compensation. Your Philadelphia bike accident attorney can help you determine if the driver violated any Pennsylvania laws that protect bicyclist safety. If they did, the violation usually makes them legally liable for your injuries. Your attorney can help you present this information and use it to advance your case.
