    They’re everybody’s roads. But I feel you. I can’t stand it when cyclists ride 3 wide instead of single file. I’m hoping that pretty soon a points game is developed for these men.

      PA state law requires that you give cyclists 4 feet. So it really doesn’t matter whether they’re single file or 3-abreast, either way it requires a motorist to drift into oncoming traffic and therefore only do so when it’s safe to pass.

      I spend a lot of time in Lancaster at the National Train Museum. The way people stare at these Amish folks you would think they just got off a space ship. Maybe if the tourists would mind there own business these accident may not be so abundant. Oh I forgot. We have to text about what we see or call someone about the horse and buggy. Just leave these people alone.

      It’s almost like driving an antiquated and entirely unsuitable vehicle on public roads is a bad idea.

        Or you could try driving more carefully. I guess you think motorcycles and bicycles are all unsuitable for road use as well.
