I'm one of the hard working but low income people that uses a bike to get to work and can't afford a car (they're giant money traps). If I had to
start paying for licenses and insurance, etc. I don't think I could even afford to get to work. So who uses bikes the most-for daily transportation?
I think kids, teenagers, and low income people. Sure, there are bikers riding around with $4000 frames, but that ain't me. From what I know about my
state, the taxes I pay go to road management. So where would the money go from the licenses? Probably not anywhere that would be useful to me or my
And do you think license plates will stop anyone from breaking laws? I see cars with plates run red lights, how will it change biker behavior? Lot of
things are illegal, but they still get done. Bike plates won't lower crime or keep people safer, only education will do that. Educate your kids about
the value of protective gear (helmets), and the value of following traffic laws. When my boyfriend runs through red lights he has to stop and wait for
me anyway, because I wait my turn.
