bicycle licensing

Let’s leave bicycle licensing in the trash can of history: 5 reasons it doesn't work

Bicycle licensing doesn’t work, and it never has. Here’s why:

1)The cost of creating, administering, and policing a licensing program for bicycles is far greater than any potential revenue the program could generate.

It would take an incredible amount of resources to legislate and enforce regulations not only for regular cyclists but for recreational riders, those who ride from outside the city, tourists, children on bikes or Bike Share users. It is a waste of taxpayer dollars, valuable city workers and police officers’ time.
