NJ assemblywoman suggests, recalls bike license plate plan

    An assemblywomen from North Jersey who called for bicycle regulation by proposing that all bikes have license plates has withdrawn the suggestion. Essex County’s Cleopatra Tucker started the discussion on what she suggests should be a statewide law.


    From kids’ training wheel-ed rides to the sleek vehicles of athletes, all bikes would fall under the law, which would have require people and parents of children with bikes to attach license plates to their bikes for a yearly fee, NJ.com reports. But after pushback on the initial, informal proposal, Tucker has reportedly already scrapped the plans.
