It was definitely Mark McBride.



He's the Mayor of Myrtle Beach (SC) that is interested in "nudging" motorcyclists. With his car.

Excellent points, but just to be sure....why are you a "former" police officer? Hopefully not from providing bad advice!



Thanks for the info. You make good sense.

I was riding with 3 friends on Route 1 going to MotoGP last summer. When the four of us were told to pull over for speeding, one of us (the smart one) bolted. The CHP officer repeatedly asked the remaining three "who is your friend" and "where does he live". Um, officer, never seen that guy before in my life. Point is, there was nothing he could do for "withholding information about another person". They cannot coerce you into snitching. I'd just say that several people have access to the bike and it could have been anyone of them. Hard to say, really?!



ps. the reason "they" go after "us" is because they know we will pay

What's interesting about this is that there is no request for payment-just a request to confirm the rider in question.



Then of course a ticket would be forthcoming.

Hell, it's at least 6 degrees here! Show your face in Chicago so I can hit you with a snowball when you get here!

I would add a caveat that what the former officer has said may not be true in all states etc. Some courts have upheld tickets issued via these cameras.

Default I repeat

This is not a ticket.



It is a request to confirm the operator of the vehicle.
