The NYS legislature loved making useless laws how about a law stating all motorcycles must have an interrupter on their headlights during the day and their signal or other lights during the evening. A interrupter is a small inexpensive piece of equipment that interrupts the electricity to the light and you see a very quick flashing light that gets your attention.? It was 8 pm its dark out, how did they not see him? Shameful, look twice save a life….
