Assemblywoman Withdraws Proposal To Require Bicycles To Be Registered

bike_4_chai_dash_cam_picJUST IN: The proposed Bill – first reported by TLS – that would have required bicycles to be registered, has been withdrawn by its sponsor NJ Assemblywoman Cleopatra Tucker (Democrat-Essex). In a statement to TLS, Tucker’s office said, “My intention was never to impose a burden or additional costs. My goal was to at least begin a discussion of how best to protect elderly pedestrians. No idea is perfect, but protecting elderly pedestrians deserves attention.”

Assemblywoman Cleopatra Tucker was getting much criticism for her proposed law, which most found to be a laughing matter. The Bill would have required riders to pay $10 a year to register their bikes with the DMV – or be subject to fines. TLS.

  1. She needs to explain how this bill would protect elderly pedestrians. Not one comment posted here could tie the bill to the elderly. A question posted, did ask what planet she was from, that may still be a valid question.
