Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: January 8, 2021 04:25 PM
From: Senator Michele Brooks
To: All Senate members
Subject: Organized Motorcycle Processions
I will be introducing legislation that will allow for organized motorcycle processions, giving them the same rights on the road as funeral processions.

In order to qualify for these protections, these processions must have no fewer than 10 motorcycle drivers, not including the lead or trailing motorcycle; take place between the hours of 8 a.m. and sunset; be sponsored by a corporation or nonprofit organization; and be conducted for a charitable purpose.

The legislation will grant the procession the following privileges:
  • To proceed through a stop sign or red light as a group
  • To not have other vehicles intervene in the middle of their group, other than emergency vehicles.
This legislation will also impose certain safety measures to ensure that the group is able to travel together safely.

I hope you will join me in cosponsoring this important piece of legislation.

Introduced as SB481
