More people are riding bikes than ever before. These numbers will climb dramatically this Spring. Maybe it’s the price of gas, the desire for a healthier lifestyle or concern for the environment that is putting more cyclists on the road. It doesn’t matter. Our enforcement officers need to know the law as it applies to cycling in traffic more than ever.
This locally offered 2-hour course at the Bethlehem Police Training Center, taught by League of American Bicyclists’ certified Cycling Instructor Steve Schmitt, goes over the basics and answers all your questions. Based on the PA Bicycle Drivers Manual and responsive to current vehicle code issues such as House Bill 170 that becomes law April 2, 2012.
Your police department can avoid problems regarding these new laws by learning from experts who teach safe, legal cycling on our roadways & trails.
