State Law Would Require Bicycle Licenses for All New Yorkershttp://gothamist.com/2011/02/28/state_law_would_require_bicycle_lic.php
DenDekker (D-Queens) has introduced legislation in the state assembly that would require every bicycle in New York State to have a license plate. One bill would require "the annual registration of personal bicycles and provides for a license plate fee of twenty-five dollars for the first year and five dollars for every year thereafter"...
... A second bill would require every commercial cyclist in the state to carry identification and have insurance; their initial registration fee would be $50.
They should pummel the scum-sucker who propsed this senseless with concrete re-bar.
