Both measures would require bikes be registered, licensed, and pass inspection. One applies to privately owned two-wheelers. The other bill, addressing commercially-operated bicycles, also requires insurance.
Bikes would be required to have license plates, just like cars, trucks, and motorcycles. They would cost $25 for the family version, and $50 for the commercial tags.
I just went to get my bike inspected and it failed the emissions test. Typical politicians. Trying to create an unnecessary tax. This is nothing but a money grab and New Yorkers will see right through it. Citizens 1-Crooks 0.
I can tell you one guy who will never support this piece of legislation...
