Electric Bikes to Become Even More Illegal


Electric bikes are already illegal to ride in New York City and State, but the law is hard to enforce and cops rarely do. A new law passed by City Council, with Mayor Bloomberg’s signature expected, creates a very simple enforcement method directed at restaurants: Any restaurant with an electric bike on the premises, or whose delivery staff is seen riding one, would get a $100 to $250 fine, the New York Daily News reports. So much for going legal.
