FOR ALL US RIDERS, This is HUGE news for every rider I know please call your Federal Senators today and ask that they support this bill!
This sounds like what we have in Australia for trucks (anything over 4.5 tonnes including it's load). Here they check weights and log books for drivers compulsory rest breaks.
What do they want to check with the bikes?
the last time they did one of these stops they used them to check tags, drivers license endorsements for motorcycles and insurance..
Okay. Everyone here gets that when they do random breath tests (RBTs) to check for drink driving. They just park on the side of the road and stop as many vehicles as they have time for. Insurance here is tied to registration, and they can check that as you drive past.
Sounds odd to just target bikes for those sorts of checks.
