Any legal beagles here? I live in New Jersey where Aptera qualifies as an autocycle, so I don't need a motorcycle license or a helmut to drive one here. However, NYS has yet to pass autocycle legislation, meaning they consider it to be a motorcycle, pure and simple. So it seems I'd need a motorcycle qualified license and a helmut to drive one there.
So would I need a motorcycle rider on my NJ license to drive through NYS?
Looks like some folks were working to get an autocycle law passed, but it was just vetoed by Gov. Cuomo a few weeks ago. (https://nyassembly.gov/leg/?bn=A05390&term=&Actions=Y&Memo=Y&Text=Y#jump_to_Actions)
Anyone here knowledgable about the status of this law? Perhaps an improved one that removed the helmut requirement for enclosed vehicles with airbags and seatbelts?
