On April 26th, 2023, the PA Safe Roads PAC held a Legislative Update with our donors and members on where our key legislation stands in Harrisburg, including Speed Cameras (HB1284 and SB748), Parking-Protected Bike Lanes (HB1283), and Jay-Alert (SB730).

On August 18th, 2022, PA Safe Roads PAC held its inaugural fundraiser. Bringing together concerned community members and activists, we raised over $10,000 to support state lawmakers who prioritize road safety reforms. With these funds, we plan to focus this autumn on the renewal of the speed camera program along Roosevelt Boulevard and secure its expansion to other key, dangerous arterials.
The lobbyist for the Bicycle Coalition, former Rep John Taylor, is advising the Vision Zero Coalition and keeping the channels of communication open with key transportation committee leaders.
As Laura Fredricks noted at our gathering on August 18, if we can save even one life from our efforts, it will have been worth it. Laura and Rich received the terrible news in late August that charges against the driver of the trash truck who killed their daughter, Emily, were dropped.
Notwithstanding this defeat, Laura found the energy to draft this op-ed published on August 31st in the Inquirer. Laura’s words are a powerful statement of how important this work is. How with common sense reforms we can spare others this unfathomable tragedy. How we need to redouble our efforts to restore safety, civility and justice to our streets.
