Cycling regulations

I would like to comment on the Dec. 2 letter from Max Sestil Jr. (“Signs Should Provide Rules for Cyclists in Various Zones”). I agree that there must be something done about the bicycle situation. Just as rules are enforced for motorists and pedestrians, so should rules apply to cyclists. If a bike is considered to be a moving vehicle, then cyclists should abide by the laws of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

The bikes should not be allowed to pass you on the right at a red light, especially between you and parked cars. Often when the light turns green I have been startled by a bike riding between me and the curb. I’m trying to make a right turn at the intersection but the quietness and low visibility of the bike almost cause an impact.

Is it sensible to consider that sometimes a bike really should be on a sidewalk instead of the street, or should we just wait for another accident to occur?
