  1. Whenever I see someone driving these stupid e-bikes the first thing I think of is that the person use to have a license and lost it to an impaired or lost it for unpaid fines or cannot get insurance on a car because they are high risk from things I already mentioned or unpaid insurance. I just don’t get how these bikes (which have a electric motor) that can go 60km/h don’t have to have a license or insurance and be allowed on the streets . Why is this allowed?? I swear, every time I see one I try to avoid them like the plague because the driver is jerky wobbling all over the place like they are drunk, and they drive them like the rules of the road don’t apply to them. E-bikes should have the same licence as a Moped and should have some kind of insurance on them. So if you cannot get a G class drivers license because it’s suspended you shouldn’t be allowed to drive these either. Oh, and they should also be banned in the winter!

  2. Normally the liquor-cickle (e-bike) is the mode of transportation for those that have lost their license usually due to drinking. To get busted on a likker-cickle is stooping to new depths. She must have been hammered.

  3. Way to go TB Police, thank you. Don’t drive if you have been drinking. Unfortunately, they can’t take away that woman’s license for drinking and driving because you don’t need a license to ride an e-bike.

  4. It must be easy for some to assume (and we all know what the acronyms for assume mean) that those driving ebikes do so because of previous impaired charges. Wake up people! Many individuals in Thunder Bay survive on limited incomes, and therefore drive ebikes strictly for monetary reasons.
