PennDOT 4’ Rule Discussion

Two PSU students were present and were asked if they had heard about the 4’ rule through the university, but neither knew anything about it. Reference was made to Patty Satalia’s recent article and the fact that the local PennDOT driver’s license facility didn’t know about it either. It was suggested that a letter be written to PennDOT to suggest more information needed to be disseminated to the public, as well as their own employees.

In addition to asking the students about the 4’ rule, they were asked if they knew the university was recently awarded a “Bike Friendly University” award, but neither had.

The meeting closed at 7:00pm and was immediately followed by the State College Cycling Club’s “Safe Cycling at Night Clinic” presented by Stephen Fast.  Steve was a cycling advocate in Delaware before coming to State College, and hopefully he will become more involved in CRBC in the future. There were 22 people in attendance for the clinic.
