Default Re: Florida HP To Crackdown On Riders Who Evade. Larger License Plates considered

Thank you for saving me the trouble of pointing out what should be obvious to anyone familiar with motorcycling. I forgot just how out of the loop the GMP is about our pastime.

1) Simple solution. Can't see the plates? How about binoculars for the police? Less hassle, works better than a big plate.

2) Dollars to donuts the statistical anomoly with the increase in deaths being larger than the increase in registration is due to people who trailer the bikes into Daytona, get lit, and then "enjoy" the no helmet laws.

3) The whole we need to do "X" because squids are running away from the police is bogus. That's like saying we need to stop putting up fences because guys on motorcycles are jumping them when guys dressed like Nazis are chasing them. As long as society remains ignorant and allows itself to get worked up by the 1% (or less than 1%), true, beneficial societal change will elude us.
