In New York the minimotorbikes have provoked warnings from police and concern among drivers and residents. The city recentlyproposed legislation that would ban their sale and use. Sellers who violate the ban would pay a $1,000 fine. Riders would pay $500 and see their toys impounded.
The bill is moving full speed ahead, says councilman John Liu, chair of the transportation committee. "Their proliferation is something that's dramatic, something that presents a devastating public danger," he says.
Interesting thing about NY's proposed legis is that they're trying to ban the SALE of these things!
There are a TON of articles about cities and states passing similar legislation... type in "pocket bike ban"
