It's the law! Or is it?

Does anyone know if driving with you foot outside of your door (in PA) is illegal? I keep my foot either on my running board or wedged on the edge of my door hinge. thanks

im gonna say no as while it is legal as the law is writen to run doorless in p.a. There have been many of cases where cops will ticket you for being doorless let alone leaving a leg hanging out while going down the road.

Not sure where to put it, I figured it would be more of a general discussion so I placed it here.

Me personally, I wouldn't do it. With most of us using wider tires, A rock kicked up from the tire on the highway can do alot of damage to your foot or leg. And I would hate to think of what would happen when a pre-occupied idiot broadsides you or sideswipes you..... well they would probably be picking it up off the ground and putting it in a bag for ya to take with you to the hospital.

X 3. I see no reason to have your foot or any other body part hanging out. It is simply unsafe for a variety of reasons. I've heard people say they do it because they feel "cramped". I'm 6'4" and perfectly comfortable with all my limbs inside.

This section of the forum is for questions related to the site... moving it to local area sub-forum.

I think I misrepresented myself, I don't want to hang my whole leg out of my jeep. What I do (because it is very comfortable to me) I place my foot on the lower hinge of my door mount, this only exposes about half if my foot outside of the Jeep. I know Jeep sells a motorcycle type peg that mounts onto the lower hinge, but that doesn't mean it's ok with the law.
