The police in NY have told the NY Post that they will be cracking down on cyclist disobeying the law.
Some common ticket-able offenses are as follows:
• Failure to yield to pedestrians
• Changing lanes without signaling
• Riding outside a bike lane (where one exists)
• Turning without signaling
Assemblywoman Tucker has proposed a bill in NJ to require anyone riding a bicycle on public NJ highways or land to pay a $10 registration fee every 2 years. If not paid cyclist can get a $100 fine.
This new bill will discourage some people to ride their bikes on NJ's beautiful bicycle routes or to use their bicycle in general for exercise or transportation in NJ.
Please contact Assemblywoman Tucker either by calling her office ( 973-926-4320) or e-mailing her
. You can also leave a message for her on the New Jersey Legislature website
