Bill A6181 is in the works and regulates vehicle sharing programs in New York. In its current form, it excludes motorcycles. This would set a terrible precedent for the role of motorcycles in a future with self driving technology. Two NY assembly members are working on this bill.
We received a response from the office of Assembly Member Donna A. Lupardo and they are reviewing my request to include motorcycles in the bill. If you care about motorcycles, please email Donna too, and let others in the motorcycle industry know:
We argued that in a world of self driving vehicles, motorcycles will be a viable, environmentally friendly alternative to cars that alleviates congestion. If you'd like to learn more about these types of regulations, feel free to contact us.
Together, we can keep motorcycling as alive as ever. Thanks for your help!
