Two nights ago, my son parked his motorcycle legally on a street in Soho and went with his daughter to a nearby restaurant. Soon after, friends told him that traffic police had tried to lift his bike into a large urban truck filled with other bikes. When he arrived at the scene, he asked the police to put his bike on the street. But they gave him a strange „ticket“ that he had to sign to pay a $100 „fee“ (no deal) in reference to their attempt to remove his bike. (He can challenge it, but apparently not in a court, such as a traffic court.) They acknowledged that he had parked legally, but they said they were leading a „De`Blasio initiative to remove as many bikes as possible from the streets of New York City.“ They mentioned that their truck was the only one of its kind in New York. My questions are: Have you heard of this operation? What do you know? If the traffic police`s statements are correct, they would tend to implicate the city hall in several major robberies. But that sounds too crazy to be precise. So what`s going on here? We look forward to your input. Larry, I don`t think you answered the question of whether the police can lift the lid to see the plaque. I think the question is whether this is an illegal search, a search that would require an arrest warrant. I believe the police can break into a property without a warrant if they believe there is imminent danger. The same seems to apply to motorcycling, should the police talk about danger late? I know there have been prosecutions, for example, about the police reaching out into an open car window to move papers that covered the registration sticker. The issue of motorcycle coverage had to be negotiated at some point, I suspect there was a legal ruling saying it`s okay for the police to remove the cover, otherwise everyone would just cover their plate.

But theoretically, it seems they would need an arrest warrant. Do you know the answer? Hi Larry, Someone parked their bike in front of my house, completely covered and packed as if it was stored for the winter. No problem if you want to park for a few days, but how many days can someone with such a crowded little bike legally park in a parking lot in front of my house? The plate is not visible because it is tightly wrapped under the cover of the bike. I am in Queens with no other side and especially a parking lot in front of each house with private driveways. Thanks in advance! We got tickets for our two motorbikes parked on the street in front of our house and covered with motorcycle covers. Tickets read expired license plates.

This differs depending on the jurisdiction. Generally, local municipalities are responsible for the application of parking meters. Therefore, there is no uniform law in the state on sharing a meter. If you`re not sure how local park authorities or law enforcement agencies handle this issue, it would be a good idea to ask someone who knows. Better yet, if you see someone enforcing parking meters, don`t hesitate to ask.

Never assume that it is acceptable to share a measured space with another car or motorcycle. While this may save you money in the short term, a ticket will definitely cost more than it would have cost for a metered seat.
