    I have been riding for 50 years and also waiting for motorcycles/scooters to be recognized as a viable form of transportation in the U.S. for the same 50 years.

    Laws do not have to be fair.
    Minorities are trampled upon all the time.
    Join the AMA and bring this to their attention.

    BUT.....a bike doesn't take up THAT much less space in traffic than a car does.
    There might be a fair case for no exemption or discount.

    I see in the picture that there are MCs all lined up on one side and full-sized car spots on the other side. How about the MC guys getting together and starting to park their bikes in the bigger places, one bike to a parking place. Maybe someone might get the message.....? Naw, I doubt it. Jim

    ever ongoing arguments, we pay all the same requirements: license, registration, inspection, insurance,ect,ect & are supposed to qualify as a full vehicle in a lane (no side by side riding only staggered) but only when persons in charge decide it's good for them. so the legal arguments continue. (Related)One hot topic with my local A.B.A.T.E. Are the failureto yield fines, there are some notable discrepancys we are trying to amend

    Now the problem is you're assuming TPTB are actually interested in reducing traffic in Manhattan. They're not. They're just interested in the money.

    Default Show me the money.....

    It's all about the money. There will be many that will go for the motorcycle, scooter etc and the city does not want to loose out on all the revenue. No nevermind about the traffic....

    Bingo.jpg Just another excuse to move more money from your pocket to theirs. When they find a way to extract virtually all of your money, and find it still not enough, you have Venezuela!
