Met with NYS Assemblyman Cliff Crouch who co-sponsors the ABATE-supported bill (A06695) which “[e]stablishes a motorcycle safety awareness component as a requirement for licensing.” During the discussion, he indicated that requiring insurance policies notify the insured that “no fault” doesn’t cover motorcycles (A00216/S06455) made both common and economic sense. Assemblywoman Lupardo didn’t make set meeting and needs to be rescheduled.
On Monday, Aug 29th (2011), I met with the New York State Attorney General's Representative to discuss the roadblock abuses. I requested an invesigation into the actions of the state police. They were receptive to our complaint and we now have a mechanism to report all incidents directly to the Attorney General's Office. If you or anyone you know has been a victim of motorcycle profiling, call me at 518-239-4560 and I will help you to file a complaint. Let's follow through on this and let them know we're fed up with the harassment.
