Of interest to NYC bikers and any others that ride into NYC. On Dec. 18 the City Council will be passing a law requiring all bikes to have an EPA tag on there exhaust systems. No need to prove they pass the 80 decibel limit, no tag you have a problem. A MAJOR one,$1000 fine and temporary confiscation until paid. Second offense hikes fine to $2500 and permanent fortfeiture. If the bike is parked and has no tag it can be ticketed by a meter maid. Sounds kind of severe to me but what can you do about it being a minority group. As with the helmet law 20-30 years ago. The next question, what is an exhaust system EPA tag? How and where do you get one? The article was in todays Daily News Dec 11 on page 4. I am going to try and call my city council person tomorrow and see if they have a clue about obtaining an EPA tag.Bet I dont get an answer.
