OCEANSIDE CA - Police to increase motorcycle safety enforcement


The ACLU should look into this as it will disproportionately affect white males with very short cropped hair. Cleary an effort by Oceanside to discrimate against this distinct racial group.

OCEANSIDE: Police to increase motorcycle safety enforcement..

OCEANSIDE ---- In an effort to cut down on motorcycle crashes, the Oceanside Police Department will increase traffic enforcement over the next several days in neighborhoods where the crashes most frequently occur.
The special patrols will take place Thursday through Saturday,  Lt. Leonard Mata said.
"Officers will be looking for drivers and riders who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol and cracking down on traffic violations ... that can lead to motorcycle collisions, injuries and fatalities," Mata said.
All motorists should be alert and watch for motorcycles, especially when turning and changing lanes, Mata said.
Training courses in accident-free riding practices are available through the state Motorcyclist Safety Program, which can be reached at 877-743-3411.

A thought that was expressed by Douglas, our Local 6 PAC Rep is this :   Signatures and letters are OK, but if 5000 politicians signed a letter to you asking you to stop riding your motorcycle,  would it affect how you think and act ?  His thoughts and mine are that showing up and volunteering for some campaign work leaves a much better and lasting impression on these candidates. 
There are three candidates in the San Diego area who are running for office who are friends of ABATE and friends of Motorcyclists.  If you can spare a little time,  please give them a call,  identify yourself as an ABATE member,  one of those motorcycle people,  and offer your services in some job that they need done.
