Abstract: Sports bikes are too dangerous?

MARYLAND LAWMAKER WANTS TO BAN BIKES

One Maryland lawmaker, speaking about sportbikes, claims they are “wreaking a tremendous amount of havoc on our roadways,” and says the state should consider banning the motorcycles from street use. “They are potential death machines in the wrong hands,” says Delegate Bill Bronrott of Montgomery County. “I think we should look at the possibility of saying, ‘these are only intended for recreational use and should be used on race courses rather than on public highways.” Delegate Bronrott says Maryland State Police are contacting jurisdictions around the country to see how they handle the motorcycles. He says Maryland needs to investigate whether higher penalties would reduce problems associated with the motorcycles and/or whether laws need to be changed.
