A May 14, 2010 article posted on reviewed the fact that 16 bicyclists were killed in Pennsylvania in 2009 which was double the amount of bike riders killed in 2008.  Quoting PennDOT spokeswoman Alison Wenger, several steps need to be taken to reduce bicycle fatalities:  make sure all bicycles have reflectors, ride on the right side of the road with traffic and follow the same traffic laws as motorists.
