City considers crackdown on cyclists

May 30, 2012 4:50:14 PM PDT
People have been hurt by bike riders on sidewalks, and now New York City Councilman James Vacca wants to do something about it.

There is a law already on the books, but Vacca and other City Council members want to increase the current $100 fines for delivery cyclists who illegally ride on sidewalks.

The proposal would create a new unit of enforcement officers to ticket violators.

The law would also fine restaurants and other businesses that use delivery bicyclists who violate the rules.
