Confiscate 350 motorcycles, slap riders with 5,900 summonses

Confiscated motorcycles at an NYPD auto pound.

The NYPD has been aggressively cracking down on motorcycle riders who lack
proper licensing - handing out thousands of summonses and confiscating more
than 350 of the vehicles, the Daily News has learned.
"There have been 16 motorcycle fatalities this year; 12 were unlicensed
operators," Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Browne said.
Cops initiated the crackdown in a bid to try to stop the mounting death
toll, Browne said, pointing out that the 16 motorcycle accident deaths
already this year represent a 100% increase over the same time last year.
In all of last year, 33 motorcycle operators were killed in accidents on
city streets.
Highway patrol cops had issued more than 5,900 summonses to motorcycle
operators for a variety of infractions as of June 3. The summonses were
issued for safety violations, speeding, unlicensed operation, unregistered
and uninsured motorcycles.
Cops also have confiscated more than 360 motorcycles, the vast majority
within the past four weeks, records show.
The unlicensed motorcycle riders killed this year include an off-duty NYPD
cop, Foster Burton, 23, who was killed April 23 when he struck a parked car
on Zerega Ave. in the Bronx.
"I believe my son had a [motorcycle] permit and rode for about a year and a
half. He never drank and was very responsible. I don't understand how this
happened," said Burton's mother, Leslie Buie.
Cops are returning confiscated motorcycles only when a rider who has
received a summons shows up at the local precinct stationhouse with a
licensed rider or a tow truck.
Unregistered or uninsured motorcycles are not being returned to their owners
until proof of valid registration and insurance is presented, police said.
Riders who fail to get to the stationhouses quickly enough will have to trek
to the NYPD auto pound in Whitestone, Queens, to retrieve their bikes.
"Having a driver's license does not give someone the right to ride a
motorcycle," said NYPD Sgt. Richard Angeletti of the Highway Patrol Accident
Investigation Squad, adding "a motorcycle license is a totally different
license requiring the passing of a written test and road test."

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

yes, I know a lot of people in the city who have been stopped for a paper check without cause.

But then.... those 350 *********s dont belong on the streets unlicensed, unregistered, or uninsured so they had it coming.

Way to go NY!

I'm all for people that do not have a valid Motorcycle license to have their bike taken. If caught.
It will lower the insurance of the people who did take the responsibility and get the training they need to acquire a valid license.

Good idea, but I've never seen anything that "lowers" premiums.

I'm all for cracking down on those unlicensed/unregistered riders, but throw us legal riders a bone and let us split lanes. =)

Larry Grodsky wrote that riding unlicensed, riding under the influence and riding without a helmet were the 3 stupid things US riders do.

Maybe NYPD decided to cover all the possibilities this time.

Wasn't this the number one thing the majority of the accidents recorded for the HURT report, no official training being second and uninsured being third...

but my memory isn't what it used to be...

1. No excuse for riding unlicensed
2. No excuse riding drunk
3. No excuse for "without cause" stops by the cops (something about the constitution...)
4. Plenty of excuses for being stupid!

However, I see plenty of licensed drivers here in Florida that should learn to ride proficiently before getting out there in the shooting gallery.
