Electric bicycles presenting a dilemma for NYC officials

New York's restaurant industry is currently enjoying the use of electric bicycles. Food delivery people can hop on the bike, which has a top speed of 20 mph, and arrive at their destination with the food freshly cooked and still piping hot. The only problem is that such a feat may result in the electric bike rider being cited for a traffic violation. Electric bikes are "100 percent illegal to ride" in New York City. However, the laws are confusing and some police officers themselves aren't even aware that they are illegal.

How to make a traffic ticket less painful

When you get a ticket for a traffic violation, the bad news keeps on coming. First, there's the fine for the ticket itself. Then comes the increase in insurance premiums, which for some traffic violations can cost thousands of dollars over the long term. For example, a ticket/charge for reckless driving increases premiums by an average of 22 percent. In some states, these rate increases stay in place for up to seven years. Interestingly, SmartMoney recently published a few tips on how to lessen the pain after you've received a citation. Firstly, a spokesperson for the National Motorists Association told the site that drivers should always consider fighting their traffic tickets.

Father receives pair of tickets after saving son's life

A father in New Jersey may have saved his 5-year-old son's life. But that didn't stop him from being cited for a traffic violation. According to Fox News, the man took his young son to the banks of a New Jersey river to feed the ducks. But when the man briefly stopped his jeep before settling on a parking spot, the 5-year-old boy leapt from the vehicle and ran toward a ledge that towered 35 feet above the river. The man, fearing that his son might run off this ledge, also jumped out of his vehicle and caught his son just feet from the ledge.

Study ranks the traffic violations most likely to increase your insurance rates

If you've ever been pulled over by a law enforcement official for an alleged traffic violation, you are likely very familiar with the seemingly endless amount of time it takes for the officer or trooper to process the ticket. In fact, as you waited patiently for them to return your license and hand you the ticket, you probably thought about how much the ticket would cost and how it would affect your insurance rates.

Is Niagara Falls PD walking a thin line with spectators over parking tickets?

On June 15, history will be made as tightrope walker Nik Wallenda will attempt to cross Niagara Falls from the U.S. side to the Canadian side. In fact, the excitement over the event is growing to such an extent that people are lining up just to watch Wallenda practice in the parking lot of a casino in Niagara Falls, New York.

Tips for steering clear of parking tickets

There is no question that the traffic violation that New Yorkers despise the most is the parking ticket.
