I read on the Bicycle Advocacy that North Dakota is considering a bicycle tax in the amount of $50 for 2 years for all bikes ridden by adults with more than 2 speeds. This would mean that any one riding thru North Dakota would have to pay this tax or be fined $35. This is to be considered in February, 2003.
With the shortfall in Federal and State tax revenues, this could spread to other states. Any one else out there heard about this issue? Would you have to pay this for each bike? Talk about an excess tax if that is the case. I have 4 bikes that I ride through out the year on the road. If Ohio followed suit, I would pay more to license 3 bikes than to license 3 cars.
Would I have to buy a license for each State, if I decided to ride across country?
