Tickets Issued at Virginia Beach Bike Classic

May 4, 2011 by · 3 Comments 

The Virginia Beach Bike Classic was held this weekend at North Beach landing in Virginia Beach , Virginia . It was great to be there and see a lot of friends from Virginia and the Carolinas . However the event was marred by law enforcement. The Virginia State Police in conjunction with the Virginia Beach Police Department set up a few miles from the event and wrote tickets for offenses such as unapproved helmets, illegal exhausts, improperly mounted license plates, etc. It was reported at one point that they were refusing those without a “DOT Approved” helmet to proceed further and forced them to go back to the event a buy a new helmet.

If you or anyone that you know received such a ticket at the Virginia Beach Bike Classic please contact me and I will represent you at no charge. These charges are improper given the law in Virginia . For those in favor of mandatory helmet use this is not an attack on helmets. I respect the right of every motorcyclist to hold an opinion on this matter. However this is not about helmets, it is about ensuring that the police follow the law. If they are going to stop and charge people they should at least be familiar with the statutes under which they are charging them.

New Virginia Toll Lanes Designed to Create Congestion

Last week, Transurban wrote and asked state lawmakers to return checks that the Melbourne-based toll road operator had written in violation of federal campaign laws. But the deal these contributions helped bring about has already been finalized.

In June, the US Department of Transportation created a first-of-its-kind $1.6 billion financing package that consisted of tax-free bonds, loans and state taxpayer grants to support the project that will add a pair of High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes to the Interstate 495 Capital Beltway just outside of Washington, DC. To this amount, Transurban only added $349 million of its own capital — less than the cost of interest — toward the construction of the toll lane.

Many people are trading in their car keys and hopping on scooters to save money on gas.

But starting Tuesday, many scooter drivers will have to follow the same laws that apply to motorcycle riders. The big change has to do with speed and not engine size, which is how it is on the law books now.

July 1st, if your scooter goes more than 35 miles an hour, you have to obey the same rules as any motorcycle driver.

“In 2007, we sold approximately 50 scooters. In May 2008, we sold 50 scooters,” says Chelsea Lahmer, owner of Scoot Richmond.

States green-light new red-light laws for motorcycles

Motorcyclists in a growing number of states are being allowed to go through red lights when sensors aren’t able to detect they are there.

In May, South Carolina became the seventh state to give motorcyclists license to proceed with caution after stopping when the device that causes the light to change from red to green doesn’t activate, according to Imre Szauter, government affairs manager for the American Motorcyclist Association.
