Council Member Robert Holden’s bill, Intro 758, “would require every bicycle with electric assist, electric scooter, and other legal motorized vehicle that is not otherwise required to be registered with the DMV, to be registered with DOT and receive an identifying number which would be displayed on a visible plate affixed to the vehicle.” Naturally, anti-car activists, who claim to be pro-safety, are opposed to this bill, which would identify hit-and-run cyclists. A majority of the City Council has already signed onto it so why would bike activists be opposed? Supposedly because it would discourage people from choosing this mode of transportation. Good. Take public transportation instead.
