As part of a traffic safety initiative, officers with the 102nd Precinct recently confiscated several illegal electronic bikes across the command.

Motor bikes are a familiar sight in the five boroughs, especially in warmer months. And that’s when the City police Department ratchets up its annual crack down on the modes of transportation.
“With the nice weather approaching, don’t forget that it’s illegal to ride certain motor bikes in NYC,” the NYPD posted to its Twitter page earlier this year. “If you ride it, we’re going to take it.”
