New Bike Law for you parents

HB 537 requires all occupants of a vehicle, no matter their age, to be secured by a safety belt, no matter where they are seated in the vehicle; changes the definition of a passenger vehicle to include a passenger van designed to transport 15 or fewer passengers including the driver; removes the current exemption for third-party Medicaid transportation provisions regarding the use of child passenger safety seats; and prohibits a motorcycle operator from carrying a passenger under the age of 5 unless the child is seated in a sidecar attached to the motorcycle.

glad to see this passed.

Motorcycles etc.:
Senate Bill 1967 requires that applicants for an original class M license or class A, B or C driver license (including commercial driver licenses and permits) with authorization to operate a motorcycle, provide evidence of completion of an approved motorcycle operator training course. The law also increases the penalty for failure to yield the right-of-way if there is a crash that results in injury to a person other than the motorcycle operator.

Vehicle inspection:
SB 589 requires that a vehicle equipment safety compliance label be placed on a windshield, side or rear window stating that the window tinting complies with the appropriate provisions of the Transportation Code. Failing to place the required label on the vehicle could lead to a $1,000 fine.

Good info. I did know about the window tint. Cops could really mess your day up on that one.

Texas Car Window Tint Law Effective Sept. 1Installers, Vehicle Owners Face Fines for Non-Compliance09.02.2009 According to a new Texas law that went into effect Sept. 1, 2009, auto glass installers in Texas must apply a vehicle safety compliance label to windows and windshields they tint or they could face a misdemeanor charge and up to a $1,000 fine.

Current Texas law states it is a misdemeanor offense to drive a vehicle with excessively tinted windows. Windshields may be tinted only to certain dimensions, typically five inches from the top of the windshield. Texas law limits vehicle window tint to 25 percent or more light transmission and 25 percent or less luminous reflectance.

For complete Texas window inspection regulations, see the Texas Department of Public Safety web site at:
http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/vi/Misc/faq/tint.htm#label

For the text of Texas SB 589, which amended the law to add the fine for not applying the compliance label and has the complete window tint regulations, go to:
http://www.legis.state.tx.us/tlodocs...f/SB00589F.pdf

For the text of Texas Transportation Code Section 547.613 RESTRICTIONS ON WINDOWS go to:
http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.u...htm/TN.547.htm



Your post was lacking a little info so i added to it

It will keep collecting dust, they'll pass helmet law before they dust off lane splitting. Did it when I took my bike to Laguna the past 5 years, still freaky every time, lol.

if you have your class M then you don't need to take any sort of riding test. you only take the riding portion to get the class M
