Feb 16 - New York State Bill To Ban “Spinners” Rims
New York State is taking fresh legal steps to ban spinning hubcaps and wheels. Bill Number 1640 is presently being considered by the Senate Transportation Committee, and it would make such wheels illegal statewide. The bill was introduced previously, but it is now gaining traction after being reintroduced by State Senator John Sabini. The measure would fine vehicle owners up to $750 for a third (or subsequent) violation.
The folks at the SEMA (who mobilize and lobby on the behalf of automotive enthusiasts when it comes to such legal matters) are urging opposition to the measure, on the grounds that the wheels are not prohibited under Federal law, nor are there any conclusive studies that indicate that spinners pose a safety risk.
:tup: How about they come up with a way to lower taxes and have better roads instead of dicking around with the No Spinners rule…well if we lose all of our sports teams…noone will want them anyway so I guess maybe its just a measure to reinforce that notion.
LOL. What a worthless legislature. WOW spinners pose some serious safety risk. Maybe they will fly off and saw through oncoming cars like in James Bond flicks. I dont care for spinners but these people are just assholes.
Fucking die in a spinner related car wreck.
