ALERT: NC Motorcyclist Only Checkpoints

Postby annieh » March 24th, 2010, 2:29 pm

From Full Throttle Magazine:

Stories about motorcyclist only checkpoints in NC have popped up from time to time in the past. Now, with an influx of federal funding for motorcycle safety programs delivered to the NC Governors Highway Safety Program (NC GHSP), it looks like motorcyclist only checkpoints may become more frequent and will not go away until we organize opposition to DEMAND and end to them.

According to a news article in the Jacksonville Daily News, a recent motorcyclist only checkpoint in Holly Ridge was the second statewide and part of a new initiative by the Governor's Highway Safety Program.

It's all about the money! follow the money trail. government doesn't give a sh!t about you or your safety or your healthcare. they just want your money.

Most of y'all already saw my rant about being overtaxed in NC, this is just another instance of them trying to make money. (or THINK they will make money...)

They added an extra officer in Maggie a few years ago, strictly for street patrol. The annual number of DUIs went from like 19 to 140 (numbers might be off, but only a little!) Wonder if it paid his salary? I just sit my butt at the firepit, and watch 'em get pulled as they go by!
