Town Halls Scheduled for Lewistown, Huntingdon
I will be holding two town halls later this month to meet with area residents, share ideas and provide an update on state and local issues. Town hall meetings
provide a valuable opportunity to have a candid conversation about concerns and issues. A continental breakfast will be served. Residents planning to
attend are asked to RSVP to 717-242-2410 by May 13, 2016. I encourage area residents to stop and look forward to talking with you.

Sharing the Road Responsibly
Pedestrians, along with
bicyclists and motorists, whether on
four, or more wheels, are increasingly taking to the roadways as
spring unfolds, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and its “Just Drive PA” campaign.
Sharing the Road requires responsible observance of all
PA traffic safety laws. Just Drive PA offers
resources for all types of motorists and driving conditions.
Among the more pronounced changes is requiring
motorists to allow at least four feet
between their vehicle and a bicycle, permitting the vehicle to safely pass the bicycle. Motorists may pass at a careful and practical reduced speed.
Motorists may cross the center double yellow line, if safe and necessary, to provide the required four feet when passing a bicycle. No turn by the driver
of a motor vehicle may interfere with a bicyclist proceeding straight on a roadway or shoulder.
