Due to low participation of the San Jose bike licensing program, the San Jose city council is planning on ending a bicycle license as a requirement.
After a recent city audit, the lack of participation does not cover the cost of maintaining the licensing database. For a one year license, the city charges $2, and $3 for a three year renewal.
Sam Liccardo, Councilman for San Jose said the program was to help police recover and return stolen bikes to their owners. He followed by saying he is not licensed, although he rides frequently.
