    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Mayor Michael Bloomberg is expected to sign a new law banning the e-bike, which some say is fast and dangerous.

    The City Council passed the legislation on Thursday.

    The bikes are often used by delivery people and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn said the new law plugs loopholes and totally bans electric bikes from the streets of New York.

    An out of touch mayor, elected by an out of touch populace, continuing the pussification of america.You can see what's going to be next, bikes at all in NYC.The drivers complain to all ends, then want their swiftly delivered products, which only a bike messenger can deliver in that choked out hell-hole.
    So Cal is turning the same way, people complaining about bikes slowing them down, and in the same sentence complaining about the smog.We are a doomed species.

    People will always complain about everything. The Mayor needs to stop listening to the weenies and do the right thing.

    That's just crazy. Liberals have some good policies but on the whole they just want to make life miserable for the average Joe or Jane.

    Bloomberg is an old lunatic. Most of you are probably aware of his attempt to ban New York City's food-service businesses from selling "sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces." The "Nanny State" is upon us.

    I'm not at all surprised to learn of this e-bike ban attempt. This guy needs to be put out to pasture.

    This is funny.
    Boobberg and the NYC dingbats are unaware that e-bikes are not legal in NY to begin with. NY is probably worse than Ca. for nanniness.
