Works for me, make sure you go to this website and not Chinese porn:

https://www.nyc.gov/html/ccrb/html/complaint.html

And next time keep your registration card with your insurance card, it should be in a zip lock bag in the little pocket inside your riding jacket. Your license can be in your wallet. If you can show proof that MC checkpoints are illegal then carry proof with you.

I just read a little about MC only checkpoints, did the leo tell you it was a checkpoint? Were there any signs indicating it was a checkpoint?

So he stopped you because you were in the HOV lane, did you show him proof that the HOV lane is for MCs also?

In other news, would anyone want a salt encrusted 2008 klr 650? It took a bath during Sandy. I don't have the time or patience to part it out and I'm not sure exactly how fucked everything is (motor, transmission). Surely the frame, plastics and other bits should be OK?

If you're giving it away, I'll take it.

If Jesse doesn't take it I'll take it (or buy it).

He clearly told me that its Spring and the new riding season and since all motorcycle registrations expire on 04.30 they had a motorcycle checkpoint.

When I told him that I thought such MC ONLY checkpoints were illegal, it ticked him off.

Between me handing over my license and insurance.....and then searching for my registration....it was all of 2 minutes max. While I was searching, he walked away to his car and came back 5 min later with a summons already written. And I was like hunh !! WTF !!

That really sucks!!!

Did you notice any checkpoint signs? I believe there have to be signs if they are going to stop you.

I never drove around with my MC license back home but since I've been in the US I always make sure to have all my papers ready, it's a PIA but unfortunately it's something you have to do. Hopefully they will throw out the summons. Next time take a pic of the registration with the officer in the background and bring to the court.

And don't get me wrong, I carry my license in my wallet and I place my wallet in my pelican case so if I get stopped I have my ins and reg cards ready but I would have to get my license out of my pelican case..... I wonder if he would arrest me for not showing my license immediately???!!!

We all hate the checkpoints. (They are not required to have signs.) But as far as the law is concerned, they're legal. This was appealed (and denied) in federal court a year and a half ago. http://forum.nymstf.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=306#p1431

We're all going to have different responses to being flagged down or pulled out of traffic in a checkpoint. If you want to blow of steam and text the NYMSTF Checkpoint Alert System four (!) times about what an asshole the cop is, be my guest. If you want to ask the cop direct, firm, but polite questions like "Why am I being pulled over?" "What have I done illegal?" to try to make a point, now or for a judge, go ahead. Think about what your motives are: does it benefit you to get huffy and indignant with someone with the power to summons you or tow your bike, who is doing his job as he is told to do, a job which the courts have decided is legal?

In the meantime, every checkpoint I've seen is lined with 8+ bikes on flatbeds while their unlicensed riders curse and fume that their unregistered, uninspected, and uninsured vehicles are taken away. Judges and NYPD brass know they work, i.e., they generate revenue.

Do you know how these checkpoints get funded? Your registration dollars. Agencies write grants to fund overtime and training on conducting motorcycle-checkpoints as a "safety" measure.

Five states have outlawed them so far. http://www.americanmotorcyclist.com/...eckpoints.aspxHave you written your representatives about this? Have you joined the NYMSTF -- who are trying to get our own grants that will have actual safety benefits?

I dunno what I'm going to do at the next checkpoint; I seem to get pulled over every year at least once. But they're here to stay, for now, so it's probably best that cooler heads prevail.

Stated that its a MC specific checkpoint. I told him that I thought those were illegal and he flipped out. Turned on his asshole quotient.

Asked me for the papers. I gave insurance and license and was searching for the reg. Told him that I did have it somewhere because I also had the 14 sticker. Well the man was impatient so started writing a ticket. I did find the paper registration, but by then it was too late.

I asked if I can mail a copy in with the ticket, and he said no, he would make sure that I need to show up in court. At that point I told him in very polite terms that he was being a jerk !.

Of course that hurt his ego even more and so he starts checking all the lights and indicators and the horn etc etc.

Finally writes the violation for no registration and I leave.

Oh well !!
This is why I advocate having a gopro or similar device. So jerk officers are forced to be proper and you have some proof against them when you file.

Sorry about your experience.
