ABATE of Michigan
Fighting for the rights of all motorcyclists since 1976
Mon, May 10,
to meLast Friday, champions of the motorcycling community in the House of Representatives introduced a resolution addressing motorcyclist profiling. The resolution H. Res. 366 has three key points:
(1) promoting increased public awareness on the issue of motorcyclist profiling;
(2) encouraging collaboration and communication with the motorcycle community and law enforcement to engage in efforts to end motorcycle profiling; and
(3) urging State law enforcement officials to include statements condemning motorcyclist profiling in written policies and training materials.
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) applauds Congressman Tim Walberg (R-MI), Congressman Michael Burgess (R-TX), Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-IL), and Congressman Mark Pocan (D-WI) for introducing this bipartisan resolution in the House of Representatives.
ABATE of Michigan talking points:
Profiling is number 1 on the agenda
New Green deal – is a movement to stop making gas vehicles and making everything electric. You will have to pay to charge your bikes and the charge is only good for 100 miles.
Autonomous Vehicles (Self driving cars) –Test pilot is in Macomb County, on Mound Rd (3-4 lane road) – Who is responsible if they crash with another vehicle?
EPA Gas – will blow up your motorcycle or boats. The fight is to have it labeled and to have its own pump.
30 State that have a choice to wear a helmet and we might lose that because they are fighting to make it a federal law for “All gear all the all the time’. (SMARTER) You want this to say at the State level and not Federal. Note is this is ever to hit Michigan’s Governor desk it will be signed into law.
