The new “Share the Road” special fund registration plate designed to help fund bicycle safety is now in stock and being shipped to interested vehicle owners, PennDOT announced this week.
All proceeds from the sale of the new plate fund PennDOT’s bicycle and pedestrian safety efforts, as well as highway infrastructure signage for bicyclists with the purpose of wayfinding and/or safety.
The “Share the Road” plate uses the same colors as standard plates — blue, white and yellow, with addition of an image of the shared lane marking including two chevrons, a bicycle silhouette and the words “Allow 4 Feet to Pass.” The bottom of the plate reads “Share the Road.”
Applicants may order a plate by completing Form MV-917, “Application for Share the Road Registration Plate.” The cost of the plate is $40. This plate may also be personalized for a fee of $100 in addition to the $40 plate cost.
