Electric bikes make takeaway brothers in New York City much easier. However, the means of transportation they rely on are facing "blockades" by the municipality.
Electric bikes face a double-fire in New York. Environmentalists, low-income earners, and migrant workers rely heavily on it, but the driving and walking people are throwing their eyes on it.
New York City law allows the ownership and sale of electric bicycles. However, riding an electric bike on the street can result in a fine of up to $ 500.
New York Mayor Bai Sihao announced this fall that since 2018, if employees use electric bicycles, companies will also face a first fine of $ 100 and a fine of $ 200 each.
The Washington Post quoted New York City spokesman Austin Finan as saying on the 25th: "E-bikes are illegal on the streets. Those at the top of this food chain need to be held accountable. In addition to being accountable to cyclists, We will track down companies that knowingly commit crimes and make employees liable for fines. "
This policy is undoubtedly a good thing for those who often complain about being nearly knocked down by electric bikes. However, for someone who specializes in delivery, such as Clement Martinez, the New Deal is terrible.
Martinez, 44 from Puebla, Mexico, came to the United States 15 years ago. He has always been taking delivery to make a living, and bought an electric bike 3 years ago. "It is a tool for our work to support our family."
Some electric bike proponents have asked the city government to come up with data on whether electric bikes pose any unusual risks compared to other modes of transport.
"In the field of law enforcement, numbers should be shocking. Law enforcement is not a solution ..."
However, police enforcement of electric bicycles is on the rise. In 2017, New York police confiscated nearly 1,000 electric bicycles, hundreds more than last year.
On the other hand, restaurants want employees to own and retain electric bikes.
Lawyer Elizabeth Jordan said: "They must have such a car if they want to get this job. I think that even if the New Deal intends to track down the restaurant, it will eventually be carried by the delivery person."
