End Of The Funding Of The highly Unpopular Motorcycle-Only Roadside Checkpoints.

The United States House of Representatives Transportation Committee passed a new long term highway legislation. The bill contains a few provisions near and dear to the motorcyclists of America. Most importantly, it ends the federal funding of the highly unpopular motorcycle-only roadside checkpoints. “Ending the checkpoints was, and was priority number one for the Motorcycle Riders Foundation,” said Jeff Hennie, Vice President of Government Relations and Public Affairs for the MRF. Additionally, the bill re-launches the much-needed Federal Motorcycle Advisory Council (FMAC). The bill revives the FMAC for the purpose of developing recommendations to the sitting Secretary of Transportation on all things regarding motorcycles and motorcycle-related infrastructure.
