Biker's right to drive revoked since 1999
Before NY road rage, Mieses had dozens of violations

By Douglas Moser

The Lawrence motorcycle rider critically injured Sunday in a wild New York City road rage incident has had his right to drive in Massachusetts revoked since 1999, according to state transportation records.

He also has had dozens of traffic violations, those records show.

Edwin Mieses Jr., 32, was run over by a Range Rover SUV on the Henry Hudson Parkway after a biker he was riding with collided with the SUV. Family members have said Mieses was in a coma after the crash and suffered serious internal and spinal injuries that could leave him paralyzed.

A lawyer for the family, Gloria Allred of Allred, Maroko & Goldberg in Los Angeles, declined to comment yesterday.

Mieses’ learner’s permit to drive a car was suspended in 1999 following a spate of violations in Lawrence, including speeding, failure to stop, attaching improper plates, driving without insurance and driving an unregistered vehicle, according to records from the Registry of Motor Vehicles. He never received a driver’s license for a car or motorcycle, the records show.
