Georgia State Justifies Motorcycle Checkpoints (Locations Disclosed)

The Georgia Department of Public Safety (DPS) has received a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to collect data over the next two years to improve motorcycle safety. The $70,000 grant will be used to conduct six, one-day safety checkpoints between March 1 of this year and December 31, 2012.

Lt. Colonel Mark McDonough, DPS Deputy Commissioner, said that Georgia saw a sharp increase in the number of fatal crashes involving motorcyclists between 2005 and 2008 as the number of motorcycles registered in the state reached an all-time high. There were 167 motorcycle operators or passengers killed in crashes in 2008. He said Georgia State Patrol launched specialized patrols that included aviation support during the summer months when weekend motorcycle traffic is the heaviest. The enforcement effort along metro Atlanta interstates is focused on motorcycle operators traveling at a high rate of speed, weaving in and out of traffic, traveling in the emergency lane, or driving recklessly around other vehicles.

“The first step in reducing motorcycle deaths was the educating of all drivers of the dangers motorcyclists face on our roads, and now the next step will combine enforcement and education to enhance the safety of motorcycle operators and passengers,” he said. “We will be checking to make sure the operator has the proper class of license to operate a motorcycle and a DOT-approved helmet. We will also check that the motorcycle is in good operating condition with good tires, a headlight, and a taillight that is working.” The Lt. Colonel said troopers will be concentrating on the basic violations to protect the operator and passenger in the event of a crash and minimize the injuries they sustain.

The first safety checkpoints of 2011 will be conducted Wednesday, March 9 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. along Interstate 75 at the Southbound Commercial Vehicle Inspection Station in Monroe County. During the same time period, another checkpoint will be established at the Southbound Commercial Vehicle Inspection Station along I-95 in Chatham County, north of Savannah.

Lt. Colonel McDonough said the checkpoints will operate in the same manner as passenger vehicle safety checks conducted each day across the state. Motorcycle operators will be directed by portable highway signs to exit the interstate at the inspection stations where troopers or officers will check that the operator has the proper class of license for the vehicle, a valid tag, a federal DOT-approved motorcycle helmet, and that the operator is not under the influence of alcohol. “For the average operator with the proper license and equipment, the delay should be about a minute,” he said. Additional safety checks will be held in the spring and fall this year. (source Rome News, GA)

    maybe georgia needs an ABATE program.

  2. 2 rc Mar 3rd, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    Georgia does have an ABATE Program. You can google ABATE of Georgia.
    They have released the article above as a press release adding the following sentence,

    “Additional safety checks will be held in the spring and fall this year.”

    This would coincide with Bike week and Biktoberfest.

    However to date we have been unable to confirm through official sources whether or not they will start on this (march 3rd) date as originally reported.

    Our site has been posting most of the information we have been receiving. Much of it is contradictory. However we are posting preferring to err on the side of caution and let the rider make their decision based on all info available.

    Nazi Georgia. I’d like the Georgia Highway Patrol to provide a specific list of the dates and locations where they have operated ‘passenger vehicle safety checks’ every day across the state. What a total crock of shit!!!

    Here’s the bottom line: All governments are lying cocksuckers, and that includes the police. Educate yourself on your rights as an American citizen and stand up for them no matter what.

    You do not have to subject yourself to inspection. Remember the US Supreme Court has already said that check points are illegal and a violation of your admendment rights.

    But at the end of the day. It just means that I as a motorcycle rider will not stay, vacation, or spend any money in the state of Georgia. Heck if I have to travel south I guess Alabama looks a great deal more inviting.

    What ???? No north bound checkpoints? Why not have check points on the 4th of July , Labor day or Memorial day…..thats when stupid people get on the roads and do the stupid things their looking for. And they are more than likely to be under the influence of something.Then they can find all the new registrations in their state and send them back to school..

    Well, being my home state now I’d add that I believe he is talking about the sport bikes.
    All the accidents I’ve seen on the news have been sport bikes. The issue’s regarding bikes
    have been sport bikes doing wheelies on the interstate, riding in packs passing cars at speed
    on the interstate etc… Given those facts it’s hard to understand why they are putting the
    inspections in place during bike week. I’ll be riding down on Sunday and I bet I’ll see no
    sport bikes on the road headed to Daytona. It’s going to be raining as well on Sunday here
    and I bet I’ll be a lone biker all the way south. That is to say, lone biker, not trailering, actually
    riding.

    Wednesday march 9th? Really? Wow. At least they aren’t going to be their on the weekends say
    Friday the 4th which is the start, Saturday the 5th when their are likely to be the most bikes on
    the road or Saturday or Sunday the last weekend of Daytona when most will be traveling home.

    Something to realize is that the head cop in Georgia is accepting this money to keep his boys well paid while they harass motorcyclist..
    Goverment agencies like the NHTSA make the statement We Have Money, that means if they do Not Spend It then the following year they get less.
    Cops that are willing to prostitute themselves ask for this money in the form of grants.
    They are calling them Checkpoints which is just a spin on words for what is Actually Roadblocks. They are stopping Motorcyclist Only with No Probable Cause for the stop.
    They way to stop things like this is to STOP THE MONEY! Contact your Federal Elected Officials and tell them you want to CUT FUNDING to the NHTSA.
    The country has financial problems and this agency is wasting Taxpayer Dollars.
    This will stop future funding for places that do not already have it.
    Remember if other states see Georgia geting away with this it could come to your state in the future.

    Motorcycle Checkpoints: American Bikers Need Not Deal with the Devil to Defeat Them

    In their release entitled “11NR09 – MRF News Release – United States House of Representatives Bill to Prohibit Funding for Motorcycle Checkpoints” ( http://bit.ly/gxCy7x ) the Motorcycle Riders Foundation implies that American bikers should KISS Fascist Fat Jim Sensenbrenner’s a*s so they can stay in General Population. To the contrary, I say that American bikers should KICK Fascist Fat Jim Sensenbrenner’s a*s so they can help bring down the Prison!

    Fat Jim Sensenbrenner is the sponsor of the USA Patriot Act:

    Fat Jim Sensenbrenner is the sponsor of the REAL ID Act:

    Fat Jim Sensenbrenner’s next bill may eliminate all rights to privacy on the Internet:

    If American Bikers have become such spineless Sheeple that they can only protect their rights by sucking up to the very people that are icons of all that we (should) oppose, then they deserve and should expect the ugly fate that awaits all COLLABORATORS when real freedom fighters wrest control from their fascist oppressors.

    Well NOT ME, boys and girls: I SAY GROW A PAIR… LIKE I TOLD YOU MONTHS AGO MAKE THE CHECKPOINTS TOO COSTLY AND THEY’LL GO AWAY.

    From a MRF news release published yesterday evening, March 3, 2011. (Thanks Andy Lund)

    United States House of Representatives Bill to Prohibit Funding for Motorcycle Checkpoints

    Today in Washington, Representative Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) introduced legislation, H.R. 904, a bill to prohibit the United States Department of Transportation funding for motorcycle-only roadside checkpoints. Representatives Tom Petri (R-W) and Paul Ryan (R-W) are original co-sponsors.

    Last year, the USDOT set aside a pool of federal monies to fund motorcycle-only roadside checkpoints. One grant was awarded to the state of Georgia in the amount of $70,000. The Georgia Department of Public Safety, through the Georgia State Patrol, plan to begin the motorcycle-only checkpoints this spring, targeting motorcyclists heading to Daytona, Florida for bike week.

    The grant was supplied by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) whose goal is supposed to be accident avoidance not injury reduction. Clearly motorcycle checkpoints do not promote accident avoidance. H.R. 904 will not stop the Georgia checkpoints, only future funding of motorcycle checkpoints.

    “We introduced this important piece of legislation because Secretary LaHood and NHTSA remain adamant that mandating helmet use will prevent motorcycle crashes,” Sensenbrenner said. “The first step in motorcycle crash prevention should be rider education and increased awareness. Taxpayer money should not be spent on helmet checkpoints that do not prevent crashes.”

    The Motorcycle Riders Foundation thanks Congressmen Sensenbrenner, Petri and Ryan for their support and defense of the motorcyclists of this country.

    The MRF urges you to contact your Representatives and ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 904. You can reach your Representative through the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121.

    United States House of Representatives Bill to Prohibit Funding for Motorcycle Checkpoints

    There are many programs by the NHTSA that affect and harass motorcycle riders so why just limit funding to Motorcycle Check Points – Road Blocks.

    Make Major Cuts to the NHTSA BUDGET. If you don’r they will continue to come up with ways to harass and profile motorcyclist.

  24. 24 Honda Gal Mar 4th, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    I respect the efforts of GSP to protect riders, but they tend to often hurt us. What are they doing about these dangerous high speed chases? what are they doing about GSP officers hitting ppl off their bikes to stop them( did he add that in the death toll? I’m sure GSP is responsible for about 10% of those deaths, because ppl are afraid to stop due to these rude officers). What is GSP doing about targeting motorcyclist? If they are trying to help, give them a pat on the back, but we are afraid to accept their help because often times WE ARE TARGETED AND HIT WITH FINES THAT for most motorcyclist are getting because officers are lashing out, because the last guy ran from them. IT IS NOT FAIR, DONT GIVE ME THE NEXT GUYS TICKET. I think this check point is a way to help GSP make more money ticketing than actually ensuring safety.

    “I live and ride in Georgia. I don’t have even the slightest problem with the checkpoints. This is really, really, simple stuff. Ride within the law.

    “For the average operator with the proper license and equipment, the delay should be about a minute,”

    I think I can stand this amount of harrassment in my world.”

    DMJ,
    First, the checkpoints themselves are against the law, 4th and 5th amendments.

    Second, there is nothing simple about this at all as it has nothing to do with safety. At a stop as they describe it, what can they really do to significantly reduce fatalities, check your tires, your lights, and if you let them, your helmet. None this items are “primary causes” of crashes and most any biker with half a brain is going to know the cond of their lights, tires and helmet if he/she wears one.

    The primary causes of motorcycle fatalities remain, distracted, reckless and negligent driving by the “other” vehicle operator. Alcohol is a factor for any who drink and drive and speed can not be determined at a “standstill checkpoint”.

    So again, it has nothing to do with safety and/or “money.” IT has every thing to do with power, tracking and profiling.

    The grant money received from NHTSA is labeled as being a “Motorcycle Law Enforcement demonstration program grant” It is a bunch of gobbledy gook in it to try an fool the federal courts who have already ruled on this manner on two occasions, the purpose disguised, is unconstitutional!

    If you live anywhere in America and give a damn about the constitution then you are obligated not to try and avoid these stops, but to confront and resist them. But then, that would be inconvenient wouldn’t it?

    OR has Tunisia, Egypt and Syria not yet taught us the value of Freedom.

    The unfortunate reality of those who call themselves “bikers” today is,
    -1- They don’t know the Constitution

  28. 28 rc Mar 5th, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    ” It’s a fund raiser for the the state of georgia. The police are the tax collectors.”

    I wish there was a way we could get past this mindset that this is money gig for the state of Georgia.
    They are receiving a $70,000.00, that does not include federal admin cost for putting this “demo” project into effect. We rode south Georgia today and saw very few MC’s traveling southbound. They have two checkpoints set for the middle of the week. there will be 6 days total through the year. Subtracting costs there will not be a large return on investment.

    NHTSA has labeled this a “Motorcycle Law Enforcement Demo Program.” New York is already in litigation over these type checkpoints as they have violated the letter of the ruling already made by two federal courts.

    Georgia can not make money on these checkpoints without ending up in the same situation. If they try it will cost them more in the long run.

    These checkpoints are not only aimed at motorcycles. California did one calling it a “fireworks” checkpoint and sought identification from every person in the car.

    Again, this is a “Demo” program. What is it supposed to “demonstrate?” That these checkpoints will save lives? That flies in the face of all the evidence in existence. Do you not believe that the government is smart enough to know that?

    This program is designed to see if “they can get away with it”! If they can succeed in Georgia then it will spread like wildfire through all the states.

    These are discriminatory, prejudicial, profiling, tracking check points. They are not after the person with a worn tire, they are after the person who may or may not have a bench warrant out on them. They are after the rare mismatched vin number. They want to see what patches show up where.

    Think Germany people, “May I see your papers please.”

    These checkpoints place the burden of proof of innocence on those who have not even been charged or demonstrated any probable cause to be charged.

    The checkpoints in New Your were not about money, they were about identifying and tracking. If we shake the tree hard enough some apples will fall.

    As not just motorcyclist, but as Americans WE MUST educate ourselves. We must cease demonstrating our ignorance with cliches such as “loud pipes save lives”. I love loud pipes, but if you think a cager with the windows rolled up, the radio blaring while kids in the back seat are screaming and mom is on the cellphone that they will hear your pipes then your ego has moved beyond science.

    The only reason the government even engages in these false flag operations is because they know that, in general, the American public has been dumbed down enough to rely on a fwd., fwd,. fwd., as their primary source of news.

    Sadly enough I think nic hits the nail on the head when he say’s:
    -1- They don’t know the Constitution
    -2- They don’t know History or its implications.
    -3- And worst of all….. They by-and-large don’t care.

    Because if it wasn’t true these constant assaults on our liberties would have ceased long ago.

    THINK PEOPLE, Georgia is projecting a 1.7 BILLION or 10.3% budget shortfall. Now does anybody seriously believe that the state can make any serious dent in that with “motorcycle fines?”

    These shortfalls in all the states will be made up through lower wages and higher taxes as more and more jobs are off-shored. The U.S. is only engaging in defensive strategic planning by keeping tabs on the enemy! US!

    However, I have several friends (current and retired) that are GA State Highway Patrol. These fine folks tell me that this is aimed primarily at the rice-rockets…saw one myself hit the ramp at Exit 7 on I-95 after he zinged by me (I was running 90mph)…well he didn’t make the curve on the ramp and challenged a tree that took him out.

    As for us HD riders, the GA SPO do give us respect here and loud pipes are not an issue either. Pretty simple rules…follow the law and its all good. Riders beware…excessive speed, weaving in an out of traffic and riding drunk…well you know the rules…suffer the consequences and shut the fuch up.

    And so like it’s only the sport bikers that pass you at 90 that they are worried about and you can pass them all day long at 90 and they will respect that? Damn I’m moving to Ga.

    Yo Boss, google the new york checkpoint case. Read the NHTSA grant that is labeled, Motorcycle law enforcement demonstration grant. If this was all about safety then they would stop every vehicle where the operator is using a cell phone. If it was only about sportbikers, In america even sport bikers are portected by the constitution.

    Respect for sport bikers or anyone else for that matter is not the issue. The issue is if I want folk to stand for my rights, then I got to stand for theirs. I don’t have to like it, but as an American I am obligated to do it. That may be something many have forgotten.

    Sometimes no matter how bad you don’t want to fight a war it chases you down.

    Didn’t see no checkpoints. Suspected I would not since they did not put out advance notice. But I said I would, so I did. unique concept nowadays I know but Im a little old school bout that sort of thing.

    As to helmets, I “chose” to wear one more than I “chose” not to. But I live in Florida, that one I will leave to the Georgia bikers.

    “No different than the agriculture stops, weigh stations and inspection stations in numerous states.”

    Way different if one falls under the interstate commerce act. You and I don’t. Well I don’t, hell you maybe a trucker.

    As to ABATE???? Not me Bro. B.O.L.T. has it all over them. Besides I’d rather go to jail over my rights than stick my nose up a legislators ass and beg them, please sir can I have my rights?

    Don’t need the power of the people. This is not a democracy. Just need the power to stand up.

    And yes we do agree, the government probably loves folk like you and me debating. Takes the focus off of where it needs to be, on their lying corrupt ass.

    Are you saying that it is okay to target particular types of motorcycle riders?

    Are you saying that the Georgia State Patrol is stupid enough to look for rice rockets travelling to or from a rally in Daytona where the predominant bike is a Harley?

    Are you saying that motorcycles should be treated as commercial vehicles?

If you are a veteran, you should know the cost of freedom even more, and that a police state is contrary to, and endangers, a free society. I implore you to either fail this roadblock assignment or show up as ordered but do not force anyone to give up their right to travel or any other natural rights.

    People – if you are violated, get the departments the cops work for, badge numbers. File complaints, and many of them, not just with the departments, but also to the US DOJ. Those who can afford attorneys, please hire them and go after anyone who violates your rights. I suggest everyone google Busted – How to survive a police encounter. Watch the videos.

    They’re turning up the fire under the boiling pot of water and you don’t even notice its getting warmer. Every time they infringe our rights just a little, and the sheeple says its not an inconvenience for them, the water gets a little hotter. You’re almost cooked and you don’t even know it.

    Wow, tough bikers fucking cry!!!

    Deal with it. The DOT has the right to inspect any vehicles traveling. Maybe it’s about time they start checking motorcycles and cars that travel our highways. I laugh at the ones that will boycott georgia. Get over yourself, comply with the law, If you have nothing to hide, you will have no problem.

    Again our Hard earned Tax Dollar’s going to a waste. Stop these Waste with so called Grant’s! Just wonderind Are the Insurance industry dictating this type of Harrassment? at the tax payer’s Expense.

    Sorry folks…I refuse to play the game. I will NOT spend money in a state with motorcycle check points. I understand one persons comment ” Just ride within the law”. But what he doesn’t understand is that the laws are made to make money. Nothing else. I refuse to play!
    I’ve been riding for over 40 years now. I put on almost 18,000 miles last year. 8,000 just in one trip. And guess what? I do NOT have a motorcycle “sticker”.Never had one! It”s nothing but a tax. Why should I pay extra for riding a bike that does almost no road damage, and costs the state/county nothing?
    Yes, it’s a risk…But when I say “I refuse to play” I… for one… really mean it.
