New York State Bill Would Ban Spinners

By RobotGod     Feb 17, 2007 in World
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.
I do not understand why they are doing this? They do not site any safety risks at all. In fact it seems rather random to go after these spinners. Am I missing something? It just seems like a huge waste of money to get this in motion. This is very odd.
