Philly in Pain


I'm not sure if any of you are aware of the bike situation in Philadelphia, but there are a lot of changes, and proposed changes in the works.

First, the proposed:
The city is proposing that all cyclists register their bicycles (a $20 fee). The registration would force all cyclists to have a visible proof of registration on their bicycles (license plate), and if any cyclists is caught without registration, its a $100 fine. The city is also proposing a number of changes to the fines for violating existing traffic laws. $300 for riding on the sidewalk(formerly $10); $300 for running a red light/stop sign(formerly around $120); $300 for wrong way on a one way street(formerly around $120); $300 for riding with headphones (fine currently $3). They are also proposing a fine for brakeless riders. The fine will be $1000 for riding brakeless, or confiscation.

Second, the current:
Starting today, the Philadelphia Police Department will be enforcing all existing traffic violations more strictly than they have been before. I've heard a number of accounts already of cyclists receiving tickets. One good point: police have been cracking down on motorists driving and double parking in the Spruce St and Pine St bike lanes and supposedly will be more often.

What to do:
"The Bicycle Coalition encourages you to write and call Councilman Kenney
(215) 686-3450, (215) 686-3451 and Councilman DiCicco (215) 686-3458, (215) 686-3459 directly and express your viewpoint about these bills."
