YONKER'S STEAM VEHICLE LAW.
The New York Times
June 17, 1900
None May Be Operated There Without a City License.
YONKERS, N. Y., June 16.—The Board of Boiler Inspectors adopted a resolution to-night that hereafter no steam vehicle can be operated within the city limits without a license from the Boiler Inspectors. This means that every steam automobile taken through this city must have a licensed operator on it, no matter where the vehicle comes from.
The new law went into effect to-night, and the Chief of Police issued an order for the arrest of every man running a steam vehicle without the necessary permit. Hundreds of steam vehicles pass through this city on Sunday, and many arrests are expected to-morrow. The penalty is a fine ranging from $5 to $50.
