Between the two major cities of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia there are miles of riding country with scenic views of the Pocono Mountains, Lake Erie coastline, and the historic town of Gettysburg. The Keystone state offers hardy motorcyclists an opportunity to ride through all four seasons of the year: whether you’re enjoying the Greensburg Donegal Loop or the Kettle Road. You can enjoy scenery ranging from urban sprawl to remote backwoods, all on the same daytrip.
Each year, thousands of motorcyclists flock to Pennsylvania roads for some of the largest rallies like Roar on the Shore in Erie, sponsored by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys. Along with the fun and celebrating comes some added congestion and a few motorcycle crashes and mishaps, which in turn draws increased attention from motorcycle safety authorities. To avoid scrutiny and problems, it is essential that all motorcyclists know and practice Pennsylvania motorcycle safety laws. Here are some of them:
Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Laws, Subchapter B – SECTION 3521-3526
- Helmets are optional for riders 21 or olderwho either (1) have been motorcycle-licensed for at least two years, or (2) have completed an approved motorcycle safety education course; a passenger is exempt if 21 or older; helmet speakers may be used only for the purpose of communication, not for entertainment
- Eye protection:Mandatory for all riders, including passengers
- Although turn signals are not required, motorcycle equipment must include two mirrors (right and left) for motorcycles built after April 1, 1977; a muffler is required to comply with Pennsylvania’s speed-based noise scale up to a maximum sound limit of 88 decibels
- There is no age restriction on passengers; however, a passenger seat and passenger footrests are necessary if passengers are carried
- Handlebar height is unregulated in Pennsylvania, unlike many other states. There are no restrictions.
- Motorcycle rider safety education is state-funded and available to eligible riders
- State liability insurance is required with a minimum coverage limits set at 15/30/5
- Riding motorcycles two abreast is allowed, yet Pennsylvania outlaws the risky practice of “lane splitting,” where a bike shares a lane with a car or truck, or passes between rows of full-size vehicles
- Regular motorcycle-safety inspections are mandated in order to encourage compliance with all Pennsylvania motorcycle safety laws
- Helmet speakers can be used only for communication purposes
- Pennsylvania minimum insurance requirements are 15/30/5
