It’s getting to be a task keeping up with pending City Council bills that deal with electric-assisted bikes. One question that tends to come up when an e-bike bill surfaces, or resurfaces, is why they’re illegal in the first place. We called up Transportation Alternatives’ Juan Martinez for the lowdown on e-bikes in New York. Many e-bikes used by restaurant workers weigh about the same as conventional bikes and have a top speed of around 20 mph. And why doesn’t the City Council simply adopt a home rule message urging state lawmakers to finally make e-bikes legal to ride, like conventional bicycles? In the meantime, council members are desperate for a solution to constituent complaints about sidewalk riding. Again, Martinez notes that not everyone who wants or needs to ride a bike is physically capable, at least not to the extent necessary to keep a job as a delivery worker.
Of course, it doesn’t help that some council members who are hot to regulate delivery cyclists have been less receptive to making streets safer for them to ride on.
I agree about the eBikes, but what the heck is this notion of elite bike lobby owning the streets? He currently has a go cart that he rides around the yard, but wants something he can drive anywhere.
He also stated that it WAS legal for us adults to ride it on the road as long as we have one of those red and orange triangle shaped slow moving vehicle signs on the back.
Anyways, as his father and were discussing any reasons why a pedal bike with a gas powered kit on it might be illegal, we couldn’t think of one good reason.
Gas engines are smelly, noisy, vibrate, and frankly make being on a bike powered by them unpleasant.
Word On The Street “The entire area around the Botanical Garden is a pedestrian nightmare, and unfortunately, the institution has shown no interest in improving safety.
As it gears up to offer electric cars in selected rental fleets across the country, Hertz has dribbled out details of how its Global EV program will actually work. Today we learn that New York City will be the first region to receive the electric and plug-in hybrid rental cars, with rentals to start in Manhattan next Wednesday, December 15.
Hertz also announced a partnership with Penske Automotive, which distributes the Smart ForTwo minicar along with an electric version. The company has also ordered vehicles from General Motors (the 2011 Chevrolet Volt) and Mitsubishi (the 2012 "i" electric minicar), with additional models likely to be added as they roll out over the coming years. All rentals will be through the company's Connect by Hertz car sharing operation, which competes with Zipcar and other local and national services.
The company has added functionality specific to the needs of plug-in cars to its NeverLost GPS navigation and tracking system. To tie into the Hertz system, though, the charger operators must provide real-time usage information to Hertz so that, for example, the system can know what kind of car is plugged in and how long remains before it will be finished charging.
Part of this morning's media launch was to visit an Icon parking garage on West 49th Street, to view its newly installed Coulomb charging station, one of those that will be part of the Hertz network. Unless you are planning to go outside the city limits for some extended road trip, car rental in New York is strongly discouraged for tourists as it is definitely not worth the headache. Traffic is terrible in New York, especially to tourists because road rules can be either written or unwritten. In order to rent a car in New York, a tourist would need to have a passport, a valid driver’s license, and a major credit card.
Gasoline in NYC is abundant, it is easy to locate and are generally cheaper than in the rest of the world.
Car rental in New York may be not recommended for tourists but if you still think driving a car in the Big Apple will give you more convenience and flexibility, then the city has a lot of companies ready to offer you their services.
I want Art Deco more than the next person but greed and 'logic' has alot to do with why this pulchritudinous style isn't used today. The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness. 2.1The Licensed Material may not be used in any final materials distributed inside of your company or any materials distributed outside of your company or to the public, including, but not limited to, advertising and marketing materials or in any online or other electronic distribution system (except that you may transmit comps digitally or electronically to your clients for their review) and may not be distributed, sublicensed or made available for use or distribution separately or individually and no rights may be granted to the Licensed Material.

In New York City electric vehicles are just one piece of a puzzle that includes bicycling and public transit.
Not only is BMW talking about its commitment in its plug-in car plans, it's putting that confidence on display, too. The BMW i 'Born Electric' world tour has just kicked off in New York City, putting the company's electric and plug-in products on display for all to see.
Running for a week in Manhattan, the tour showcases not only BMW's upcoming plug-in vehicles, but aims to explore the issues of future mobility too.
Speaking recently in a teleconference, BMW's Norbert Reithofer explained that BMW's mission is about far more than electric propulsion alone, and BMW is looking at materials, the way cars are used, and sustainability right through the value chain.
The event in New York marks the first appearance of the BMW i3 electric urban compact and i8 Concept Roadster, a plug-in hybrid sports car, in North America.
The i3 is an electric compact car designed primarily for use in cities, and has been specially developed as an electric vehicle. Using lessons learned from the MINI E and BMW ActiveE projects, the i3 mixes performance with efficiency, combining an 80 to 100-mile range with a 170-horsepower electric motor. The i3's chassis is made from a carbon-fiber reinforced plastic composite, for both strength and lightness, and BMW is also expected to release a range-extended version for those who venture further afield.
A great deal more sporty, the i8 Concept Spyder is BMW's proof that cars can be green and exciting at the same time. Due in 2015, the Spyder features a 1.5-liter, 3-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 220 horsepower.
Even better, the car could reach as high as 80 mpg, with an all-electric range of around 19 miles. BMW's research has been carried out in conjunction with New York University, and highlights that changing economic and demographic conditions mean future urban transport could look very different from today. The study predicts future urban residents will move further away from car ownership, but still place value in smaller, more efficient, 'networked' vehicles to move around. It also raises the issue of a good transport mix, barely a few weeks after New York's own wide selection of public transport options helped the city get back on its feet after Hurricane Sandy. The Born Electric tour explores all these future possibilities, while also showcasing the cars themselves. Legislation proposed by Council Members Jessica Lappin and Dan Garodnick would hike fines for riding an e-bike, and two new bills would reportedly shift fines away from delivery workers to their employers and grant enforcement power to DOT and Parks Department personnel, who, if the bill passes, would have the authority to confiscate bikes. Restaurant workers do long shifts, in all weather and terrain conditions, for very little money. About 10 years ago, Martinez says, the federal government passed a law that classified certain electric bikes as bicycles, exempting them from regulations that apply to street-legal motorcycles. Yet in the eyes of the law, they are unlicensed motorcycles driven by unlicensed operators. He points out that other cities have e-bikes as part of their transportation mix without the attendant problems that NYC can’t seem to get a handle on. They would disrupt parking garages, cars, public transportation like buses, and impact gas prices probably also… Its a very neat solution if safety standards are implemented and followed. Except maybe the fact that it has gasoline in it, which is highly flammable, and if our son wants to ride it to school, they might have an issue with that?
San Francisco and Washington, DC, will follow shortly, with other regions to be added during 2011. Under the partnership, Hertz will add the Smart Electric Drive to a fleet that also includes the 2011 Nissan Leaf, 2010 Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid prototypes, and sometime next year, the 2011 Coda Sedan.
Hertz names three groups--"urban drivers, university students, travelers and corporations"--who are now frequent users of car-sharing services, and likely to use them for brief journeys rather than extended road trips. Makers of electric chargers who partner with Hertz, for example, can have their chargers listed in the system so that electric-car drivers can be directed to them for charging if needed.


Hertz first announced that it would rent the 2011 Nissan Leaf and other electric cars last February, and released the early details of the program in September. If you are thinking about exploring just within the boundaries of New York, you will be doing yourself a favor if you skip the car. Additionally, since driving in New York is often a competitive ‘sport’, people from out of town or from other parts of the world will find it quite a stressful experience. You may need to be at least 25 years old to rent a car, but some companies may allow younger tourists for car rental for additional insurance purchase. You may need to use the “gasoline” instead of “petrol” when you are in New York and around U.S. Greed is because these days there really is 'no point' (in a developers eyes) to add all the beautiful details on the out side. You can never fully appreciate an art deco building that is so overlooked and overshadowed by their much larger and more recognizable rivals.

They deliver packages and groceries, help the Fire Department make sure buildings are safe, and allow other City agencies to do their job with less noise and air pollution.
Yet, when replacing a conventional car they reduce climate change pollution by an average of 75%.
It sends power to the rear wheels, while the front wheels get an extra 129 horsepower from an electric motor.
BMW is also continuing to develop its DriveNow car-sharing service--which electric cars will play an ever-greater part in. Even better, you can recharge at home, not worry about refilling the gas tank at a gas station.
Upon download of any film Licensed Material, you will be invoiced a non-refundable access service fee of one hundred fifty dollars ($150) USD or such other local currency amount as Getty Images may apply from time to time. This year the City is adding more, making the City’s public sector EV fleet second in size only to the Federal government’s.
This is the first time in almost ninety years that New Yorkers will have jobs manufacturing vehicles. Meanwhile  many New York companies and citizens are deciding that electric vehicles work for them. Why would the City Council expend so much effort to take away a tool that makes their jobs easier? Logically the only reason buildings are built these days is to suit the needs of trade and finance as office space.

While electric vehicles aren’t the norm yet, together we can help them become a way of life. Even if you are not a car owner you can still contribute to this transformation by showing the City and businesses you want them to use the cleanest possible vehicles. That's why we see so many glass boxes and a few good ones reflecting beauties like this one, and if it's not an atrocious POS it it met with somewhat praise.
Another example of the city’s reinvention, electric vehicles are vital to making New York City greener and greater than ever before. Also, after I said that I thought maybe he has to be 16 because he has to know and obey traffic laws when riding it on the road, my son brought of a very valid point. The developer will have to spend 'unfortunately' but he will make back his money ten folds. He can pedal faster than some of those motorized kits can go, and his current pedal bike has a speedometer on it so that wouldn’t be an issue either.
