Warning: Reg/Ins checkpoint - November 16, 2006, 12:29 PM

Anyone that enjoys the ride like I do out Route 29 towards
points West beware. That is beware if your tags or inspection
are dead. Where you go through the small town of Marshall with
the shops on either side and Marshalls pub local Deputy Barney
Fife and his partner were waving motorcycles to the side of the road
and checking liscense, registration, State inspection if VA tags and
proof of insurance. I thought to ask Mr. Fife how he found it right
to pull over bikes and not cages but frankly had my papers in order
and didn't want him finding a busted tail light stuck to a night stick if
you know what I mean. If it was just Sport bikes I'd had to of asked
but I was yanked with Harleys etc. Barney said you'd be surprised how
many we find don't have the motorcycle endorsement to which again
I opted to keep the pie hole shut as his envy of bikes was palpable and
bet his ass was kicked his entire juvenile life by kids with bikes and now
has a huge hard on for us. It doesn't seem legal and in the realm of
profiling some how.
P.S He had a wrecker around the corner in anticipation of yanking a bike
thats owner that was missing an M or more.

Cops should turn a blind eye to sport bikes. We're probably going to kill ourselves anyway.

Truth is, be legal or stay home... and i'm speaking from experience. The effort to remain legal is little more than taking a test, riding the bike for a test and paying insurance premiums... nuff said.

I thought they would need a reason to pull you over in the first place. If they just pull over every single bike that sounds fishy!!

Agreed.

On a side note, the last time I checked VA does not require you to carry proof of insurance so them asking for it doesn't make sense. I wish I could say I had not been but I've been pulled over MANY times and never once have been asked to show proof of insurance.

dunno... I've been here a year now, and despite previously averaging about 2-3 stops by the po-po per year, I have yet to be pulled over in Virginia.

Now where's some wood to knock on...

Some Cops (not all cops) will be dicks - and will occasionally go after low hanging fruit... As that lots of folks ride illegally - nobody is going to care about stops like this - if they ticket allot of rider (ie the public won't give a rat's ass)..

Ride legal - this also applies to your bike as well - working T/S - visable and lighted tag - etc....

Ride legit. i honestly dont care if they pull me over. Im legit. If you arent legal and gety busted you have no one to blame but yourself. If I got hit by an uninsured/unlicensed driver, I BE PISSED!

And in D.C., you have to have proof of inisurance. BIG FUNE!! $100.00

Agreed, ride legal or don't ride and I'd be pissed if an uninsured or under insured person hit me. I'm totally legit it was just a hassle on a nice day to have to stop and wait 20 mins for them to clear the riders I was with. I just wanted to give heads up to fellow sb's riding
there and it chapped my nuts again as I was writing it. One of the riders waiting wiped a
booger on cruisers door handle so maybe it was worth it.

law in virginia is, either all turnsignals work, or you do not even have them attatched. they are not a requirement. so either pull em, or get em working is the best way to pull it.

They were doing this to cagers in NJ with seat belt check points. Lots of cars pulled over. What a waste of peoples time.

My guys and I are required to do checking details twice a month, although I haven't done one in months. We usually stop and check licenses for every vehicle that comes through. Although if traffic backs up we waive everyone through until the line dies down and then start over.

Dead tags, dead inspections, no O/L and LOTS of suspended drivers end up getting caught.

About half of the suspended drivers are suspended because they didn't pay fines from a previous ticket. 10% or so are suspended as part of a DUI or other conviction. The remaining 15% are for not providing proof of insurance to DMV.

We also get a TON of illegals who have no license at all. No license, no drive. We usually end up with 3-5 people in an hour who have to be towed out.

Now, mind you these are people you DON'T want on the road. The illegals, usually don't have insurance and when they get in an accident, they tend to run. Leaving a messed up car and some poor soul who's going to have to dip into the uninsured motorist fund to get their car/bike fixed. Then WE ALL take it up the ass with higher premiums.

The DUI folks are usually on their 2nd or 3rd DUI and are revoked because they can't seem to get the idea that it's not a good idea to drunk before driving around.

The other suspended folks are usually just average Joe's who forgot to pay their tickets.

We do on many occasions get wanted folks.

These are NOT DUI checkpoints, but merely checking details, there is no sobriety testing done unless someone has a reason to be tested. In the few years I've been working though we haven't gotten any drunks at our checking details.

We don't usually run them for very long, maybe around an hour or so. In that time frame we'll check anywhere from 20 - 150 cars, depending on the location and time of day. In that period we'll end up with 5-20 violations and 2-5 suspended drivers.


Lt. Colonel Grossman - writes in his introduction to The Bulletproof Mind:

One Vietnam veteran, an old retired colonel, once said this to me: "Most of the people in our society are sheep. They are kind, gentle, productive creatures who can only hurt one another by accident."....

"Then there are the wolves," the old war veteran said, "and the wolves feed on the sheep without mercy." Do you believe there are wolves out there who will feed on the flock without mercy? You better believe it. There are evil men in this world and they are capable of evil deeds. The moment you forget that or pretend it is not so, you become a sheep. There is no safety in denial.

"Then there are sheepdogs," he went on, "and I'm a sheepdog. I live to protect the flock and confront the wolf."
