Congressional Proposal Introduced Concerning Motorcycle Profiling

WASHINGTON, DC– This week, Representatives Reid Ribble (R-Wisc.) and Tim Walberg (R-Mich.) jointly introduced a resolution concerning the profiling of motorcyclists. H.Res.831, formally titled, “Promoting awareness of motorcycle profiling and encourage collaboration and communication with the motorcycle community and law enforcement officials to prevent instances of profiling” was introduced and referred to the Committee on Judiciary.

The bill defines the practice of motorcycle profiling and cites states which have addressed the issue at the local level. As with all simple resolutions, it expresses the sentiments of a chamber on a particular issue. In the case of H.Res.831, it also promotes increased public awareness on the issue and encourages collaboration, education and training for the motorcycle and law enforcement communities in order to end instances of profiling.

The Motorcycle Riders Foundation, who have been advocating for a national solution to address concerns over profiling, will work over the coming months with states’ motorcyclists’ rights organizations as well as motorcycle clubs and individual riders to advance the measure.
