    Default NYC: Speak Out Against Onerous Bicycling Regulations




    Speak Out Against Onerous Bicycling Regulations

    New York 2.7.07 First, the NYPD published revised parade permit regulations. Now the City Council and City Hall are tying to limit the number of commercial pedicabs that can operate on city streets



    First, the NYPD published revised parade permit regulations that require "recognizable groups" of fifty or more bikers and walkers traveling on any public street to obtain a parade permit and approved route from the NYPD. Now the City Council and City Hall are deliberating two pieces (1, 2) of legislation that limit the number of commercial pedicabs that can operate on city streets.
    Legislation that tightens the City's control over bicycling and other non-motorized movement runs contrary to its noble attempts to encourage and facilitate cycling and walking. Onerous regulations discourage and decrease these healthy, green activities, which is not only bad for the city at large, but dangerous for those individuals who continue to ride and walk by reducing the safety in numbers effect.


    Take Action: You can keep walking and biking safe, secure and popular in NYC by helping the Assemble for Rights Coalition take a stand against the parade permit rules and supporting the Pedicab Association at a City Hall Press conference on Tuesday February 13 at noon.

    (I’m pulling out my soap box) I think the land of the free is losing more rights! Cycling at this point of change in the global weather reduces our impact, slowing things from getting worse, even if you don't know about that, the exercise extends life & gives good people a chance to live rather then scrape a living, to earn rather then wait for a job.
    Anything that slows the interest in cycling, anything that pushes pedicabs off the road with poor planning & support is BAD. Make a stand & stop the erosion of your freedoms!!! (climbing back of my soap box)
