Bike Advocates Push Back Against Proposed Regulations

The proposed bicycle regulations from Councilmen Jim Kenney and Frank DiCicco are the hot topic up in City Council today. Kenney and DiCicco are introducing several pieces of legislation that would up fines for cycling on the sidewalk and require registration of bicycles in the city.

The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia showed up in City Hall to express their displeasure with the proposed laws.

“We are opposed to all of this legislation that is being introduced,” said Sarah Clark Stuart, campaign director for the Coalition. “The reasons there are problems in the street is that there hasn’t been any enforcement. New laws are not going to help the situation.”
