At first, there was a good amount of hold out in New York in the dockless electric scooter boom it and companies like lime and bird were not able to operate because of those restrictions but now after a good amount of demand, it appears poised to finally allow companies to share their products with the people living in New York. People and New York will now be able to see the electrically powered vehicles run on their streets. This will change the law drastically and legalize all the electronic bikes and scooters but a good amount of cities will need to opt in order to give the opportunity to the local people.
The localities will be able to decide how to regulate the laws regarding the vehicles. All of the electric bikes, as well as scooters, will be made legal statewide but there will be a sharing service which will be permitted and then only will the legalization proceed. There is only one exception that borough of Manhattan will not permit the legalization of these things. According to 9Bikes, There are a good amount of lawmakers who opposed the legalization of electrical scooters for a good reason and we think that this will somewhat satisfy them. There are some safety and sidewalk obstruction reasons which should be considered in this case and we agree with them but not that much.
There are bills which criticize electronic bikes as dangerous and harmful and those bills have ordered the New York Police Department to stop the food delivery workers who use those bikes and it is appreciated that this common sense legislation that clarifies the rules around the E-bikes on their Street is allowed. safety for everyone should be the priority on the roads and there are people who are looking forward to working with the legislators as well as the communities along with the developing plans in order to implement the new law.
Legislative leaders reach 2-way agreement on e-bikes and e-scooters:
-E-bikes legal Statewide, including City
-E-scooter share in Manhattan subject to permitting program approved by City
This appears to satisfy concerns from @LizKrueger
