Webinar for Bicycle Coalition Youth Cycling
January 31, 2022
Focus of this talk was not only how to stay safe while riding on the road, but also how to manage interactions with the police while on a bike. Many BCYC students have been stopped while riding on the streets of Philadelphia. Piscitello Law, BCYC and the Bicycle Coalition teamed up to create bike equipment id cards that verify the student athlete’s possession of the bike. We also suggested that the students register their bikes with local police department as well as to carry Attorney Joe Piscitello’s business card. Hopefully these proactive steps will minimize conflicts between student athletes and the Philadelphia Police Department in the future.
