Guess they should get the sticker then. Ot start wearing a helmet.

Times are getting tight for the city/gov. Police are gonna start writing more tickets.

Cops looking for bonus bucks while watching for HOV offenders. Makes perfect sense.

I would assume the poor folks on the beater bikes need the health insurance since they most probably can't afford even a couple of doctors visits a year. Guys on 20K bikes can probably partially self insure themselves.

WRONG. the helmet law gives the officer the right to pull you over to check if you're following the law.

CORRECT, but being the sticker is what 1/2" id dia. there is no way to see the sticker on a moving veh. at speed. so he most likely will stop you, once he see's the sticker he'll let ya go (if there are no other infractions)

I don't care if you're William Gates Buffet Springstein, there's not enough insurance to eliminate the impact of a debilitating head injury on the people who depend on you.

Not disagreeing, just saying it's nice the state tries to protect us from the financial burden but we all know that motorcyclists are the lifeblood of this great nation, the Michaelangelos, De Montaignes and Franklins of our day, and its a crying shame to rob society of amazing productive power of just one of us so we can feel the wind in our hair or not have to smell that sneeze from last Thursday.

Them cops need to come over to 288. That's where the retards be. They will drive on the shoulder, on the median, wherever. Can't tell you how many times a day some vehicle flies past on the shoulder because they think it's their personal VIP lane. Newsflash 's, that's an emergency lane, for emergency vehicles, your lack of planning and timing is not a emergency, get back in the fcking lanes you retards. I just love pulling my truck out just enough where they can't get by, forcing them to get back in the normal lanes like the rest of us. Stupid fcks.

Even wearing a helmet can get you stopped.

Texas Transportation Code
661.004. AUTHORITY OF PEACE OFFICER TO INSPECT
PROTECTIVE HEADGEAR. Any peace officer may stop and detain a
person who is a motorcycle operator or passenger to inspect the
person's protective headgear for compliance with the safety
standards prescribed by the department.

Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 165, 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1995.

We are damned if we do, and damned if we don't.
