Lindenhurst Village cracking down on reckless bike riding

Posted: Updated:

Another Long Island community is cracking down on reckless bike riding.

Lindenhurst Village is following Babylon's steps in confiscating bikes from dangerous riders. 

They want riders who purposely block traffic, drive towards oncoming traffic, and make unsafe turns to be held responsible.

Under the law, police could take the bike and if the rider is a minor, call the parents. 

Those of legal age could be fined up to $250.
