Enforcement of the laws already on the books would be a good start. Strengthening them as you suggest though would be better.
You make a really good point- if they don't enforce the laws already on the books, then they probably won't enforce a new law either.

lol then i take back most of what i said earlier, i was under the impression if you get stopped without a class M then your bike gets towed.. if it's one of these, going 4MPH over the speedlimit warning things, then that's just stupid. why get a class m if the penalties for it are warnings, and a possible ticket?
lets be CIVIL!

I'm not. Its the same people who think we need more laws, taxes or rules in the other threads.

The insurance companies could enforce it by not offering you coverage. It's the same way with airplanes. You may have a private pilot license but there are still some aircraft that you cannot rent (because the insurance will not cover you) until you have x amount of hours and training.

"Isn't the .gov in enough of our business? "
^ this one made me laugh. Driving is a licensed activity. It's actually the government's job to determine what the qualifications should be.
