Motorcyclist Profiling Pushed in the House

    Today the Co-Chairmen of the House Motorcycle Caucus, Rep. Burgess (R-Texas) and Rep. Walberg (R-Michigan), released a letter they authored to Speaker Pelosi and Republican Leader McCarthy asking for a vote on the House floor of H. Res 255, the motorcyclist profiling resolution. Joining Reps. Burgess and Walberg as signatories on the letters were Rep. Balderson (R-Ohio), Rep. Peterson (D-Minnesota) and Rep. Raskin (D-Maryland). These five bipartisan lawmakers should be commended for seeking a vote in the House of Representatives on this topic. The Senate passed an identical version of this resolution in 2018 and action by the House of Representatives in overdue.

    In the past three Congresses similar resolutions have been introduced in the House. In the 114th Congress H. Res 831 garnered 18 cosponsors, in the 115th Congress H. Res 318 had 37 cosponsors, and in the now H. Res 255 has 138 cosponsors and counting. This continued growth of cosponsors demonstrates that the issue of motorcyclists profiling is not going anywhere.

    Put simply, 32% of House Members are cosponsors of this resolution. It is time for the House of Representatives to act! We, as motorcyclists, demand our concerns and grassroots work not be ignored. We have spent far too long fighting this battle to be ignored any longer.

    A vital tool in driving awareness and education of the issue with lawmakers has been the Motorcycle Profiling Project (MPP). For over 5 years the MPP has sought to collect data on the profiling of motorcyclists and use that data as a tool to change public policy. The MPP has been at the forefront of the fight to pass state laws on profiling. Four states, Idaho, Maryland, Louisiana and Washington have all passed state laws to address the issue in part because of the efforts of the MPP.

    This year the MPP hit a milestone with 10,000th respondent to its annual survey. We at the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) commend the MPP for achieving this milestone. We at the MRF have used the data provided by the MPP to educate lawmakers and make the case that profiling is real and happening in their home states. If you haven’t taken the MPP 2020 survey yet, please click here.

    Thank you to these five Congressmen and the Motorcycle Profiling Project for leading the charge on this important topic. Now get to work Congress and pass this bipartisan resolution!

  (5-7-2020)     Even with the slow down and limited miles we are making statistics that should be lower than they are. In 2020 we have 246 crashes with 10 fatalities and 61 serious injuries. In 2019 at this same time there were 291 crashes with 14 fatalities and 72 serious injuries. I feel that 2020 should be a lot less with the stay at home policy. The issue of speed is higher this year than last. What’s up with that? We should be enjoying that ride. It’s the single vehicle crashes that need to stop. Let’s stop killing and injuring ourselves.....................................( Read more....)

  (9-18-2020)     ABATE of Ohio was in Columbus to stand in opposition to HB 550.   Short Version: This bill would give any Motorcycle Safety class recognized either nationally or in another state the ability to teach their curriculum here in Ohio and anyone passing it would receive a motorcycle endorsement. We feel that the Motorcycle Ohio Program (MORE) has taken good care in educating Ohio’s riders for over 25 years. Also a class being taught with no oversight can’t be good. There is nothing in the bill regarding funding and we don’t feel our motorcycle safety funds (collected $6 at a time from your motorcycle registrations) should be used by a for profit training course................( Read more....)

  (9-18-2020)   A new website has been made available by NHTSA that enables users to track where autonomous vehicles are being tested. It is http://nhtsa.gov/automated-vehicles-safety/av-test-iniative-trackingtool. It will be continously be updated as information is made available to it.
Planning for the 2012 State Seminar is underway. It will be held Jan.29/30,2021. Look for details on the State and Region websites as they develop.
Lastly, please take the time to educate yourselves about all the candidates in all the upcoming races and excercise your right to vote!!!................ ( Read more )
