New Hampshire

Traci Beaurivage - NHMRO President - MRF State Rep

 The board and officers are looking forward to seeing all of our members and any newcomers that may want to see who we are and what we do, at our Membership Appreciation Party on Aug 18th at the Deerhead. New Hampshire Automobile Dealers is the sponsor of this event and I want to thank them for their incredible support of our organization!   
 I would like to remind all of you that at our September meeting we will be discussing the changes to our bylaws, which were sent out to all members, and I hope to see you all at this meeting. I will also be updating you on the meeting Steve and I had with the Portsmouth Police at their motorcycle informational session.
 Elections are also coming up and we should all be paying attention to what the candidates stand for. We as motorcyclists need to be concerned about our freedom of choice with helmet laws, the profiling issue and the ongoing noise complaints from towns. We should also be aware of the number of motorcycle fatalities this riding season and that is at 17.   
 I look forward to seeing all of you at our Aug party, Our Toy Run September 9th and our first meeting after summer September 16th.
 I urge ALL of our members to ride safely and respectfully.   Ride SMART!   
 
 
 
 
 
   

CALL TO ACTION from the National Council of Clubs

Help End Motorcycle Profiling

 Help End Motorcycle Profiling If you believe that motorcycle profiling by law enforcement agencies is wrong and should not be tolerated, please use the link below contact your representatives in Congress and ask them to support the Motorcycle Profiling Resolution (H.Res.318 and S.Res.154).
 

 The Motorcycle Riders Foundation is working with the National Council of Clubs and the Motorcycle Profiling Project to call on our elected officials to end unconstitutional profiling of motorcyclists across our county. If your member of congress has signed on, you can still ask them to lean on their colleagues to support these resolutions.  

MOTORCYCLE PROFILING

Motorcycle profiling by law enforcement agencies is wrong!

The term "motorcycle profiling" means the practice of a law enforcement agent or agency using the fact that a person rides a motorcycle or wears motorcycle related paraphernalia as a factor in deciding to stop and question, take enforcement action, arrest, or search a person or vehicle with or without legal basis under the United States Constitution.

 

National Profiling Survey

 

Your  MRF has been hard at work in Washington, DC shoring up support for  bipartisan and bicameral legislation to address motorcycle profiling.  H.Res.318 and S.Res.154 are pending before Congress and in need of  additional supporters in order to move forward in the legislative  process.
Like  any credible, national organization we make our case for more  supporters with cold, hard facts. To get these facts, we work closely  with the Motorcycle Profiling Project who is collecting data to  demonstrate where profiling is occurring in the country and if it is on  the rise.
To  help make sure the data we present to our lawmakers is as accurate as  possible, I am asking you to take a few moments and fill out the survey  which can be accessed by clicking on the link below. Its completely  anonymous and its only 13 questions. YOUR VOICE MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

On behalf of the entire MRF membership and its Board of Directors, thank you for your support on this issue.

MRF News

  • The National Governors Association recently published "A Roadmap for States" which highlights existing efforts to try and combat crashes and fatalities across all modes of transportation. The intention is for it to be used as a policy development tools for Governors and other state highway officials when developing initiatives. Though it examines all modes of transportation,
    motorcycles are sprinkled throughout the document. Not surprisingly, in the 9 times motorcycles are mentioned in the 36 page document, ALL are references to the need for mandatory helmet laws. Like many other publications of a similar nature, it looks at helmet usage as the ONLY solution for motorcycle crashes and fatalities emphasizing safer crashing versus crash avoidance. In response to this, I will be drafting a communication to the NGA reiterating the MRF's position on helmet laws as well as the need to pursue other avenues to address motorcycle safety in the vein of crash prevention.i.e. rider education, motorcycle awareness
    initiatives, infrastructure countermeasures and increased distracted driving laws and penalties. 


  •  NHTSA ( National Highway Traffic  Administration) published their Motorcycle
    Traffic Safety Facts data from 2016 data. Below are some quick tidbits for consumption that caught my eye:
    a. There was a 5.1% increase in motorcycle fatalities between 2015 and
    2016 HOWEVER when you look at that figure based on registered motorcycles
    and miles traveled, the fatality rate is the same as 2015. In other words,
    though there was an increase in fatalities, there was a bigger increase in
    motorcycle riders on the road resulting in a consistent fatality rate
    between 2015 and 2016.
    b. 27% of motorcyclists involved in fatal crashes did NOT have a
    motorcycle license
    c. Out of the fatal crashes involving a motorcycle and another type of
    vehicle, in approximately half of these, the other vehicle was turning left
    while the motorcycle was going straight
    d. 25% of fatal motorcycle crashes involved alcohol: the most prevalent
    alcohol-impaired motorcycle riders were in the 35-to-39 age group (38%),
    followed by the 45-to-49 age group (37%) and the 40-to-44 age group (32%)
    e. There is (as there always has been) a final section on the
    effectiveness of helmet usage
     

Thanks,

Traci Beaurivage

 The New  Hampshire Motorcyclist Rights Organization (NHMRO) was founded in 1975 to fight the freedoms that were being systematically taken away.

We encourage all motorcyclists to register and actively participate in helping to elect candidates that are supportive of our beliefs.

Motorcycle Profiling Project

Motorcycle Profiling Project

What is the Motorcycle Profiling Project?

 The Motorcycle Profiling Project (MPP) is dedicated to the grassroots  effort to pass laws addressing profiling and discrimination. The MPP is  not intended to replace other organizations. Rather, the project is  intended to coordinate and unify the different elements and  organizations in each state towards this common goal, including the  Confederations and Coalitions of Clubs, US Defenders, C.O.I.R., ABATE,  MMA, NCOM, MRF, AMA and the many smaller MRO’s that exist around the  country. 


 What do the Motorcycle Profiling Project’s services cost?   The Motorcycle Profiling Project offers all of its services to the  motorcycling community FREE of charge.  If an individual or organization  sees value in the project then contributions are highly appreciated.  The project relies on these contributions as the sole means of covering  expenses and compensation for work performed. The more support the  project receives, the more support the project can provide the  motorcycling community.As the movement to pass profiling laws  accelerates, so has the time demands and workload. A project of this  magnitude entails office expenses, travel, and time. So if you think the  project is valuable, organize a benefit and make a contribution.Contributions  go directly to the The Motorcycle Profiling Project. Contributions are  NOT Tax deductible. Online contributions can be made at  motorcycleprofilingproject.com or The Motorcycle Profiling Project on  Facebook. Contract based consulting is also available if a particular  state or community prefers a traditional and structured agreement. 

Who created the Motorcycle Profiling Project?

 David “Double D” Devereaux, a motorcycle rights activist from  Washington State, and a leading advocate for laws addressing the issue  of motorcycle profiling in America. Double D spearheaded the effort in  Washington as spokesperson for the movement. Double D represents the  Washington State COC and US Defenders, NCOM Legislative Task Force, US  Defenders National Office, BOLT, and he is a member or supporter of  ABATE, the MRF, and the AMA.  Also offering assistance to the project  are Jeff “Twitch” Burns (activist, public records, media expert and  documentary filmmaker), Bill “Colt” Kaitz (activist that leads the  Maryland US Defenders), Donnie “Mr. Breeze” Landsman (activist,  independent advocate and legislative expert), along with many others.This  unified effort resulted in the first law addressing motorcycle  profiling in America. Importantly, Washington’s law passed through the  legislature unanimously and the same legislation is receiving support in  many other states. The Maryland COC/US Defenders and ABATE, working  with the Project, unanimously passed profiling legislation through their  Senate in 2015 and seems likely to pass the law through both chambers  in 2016. 

What services do the Motorcycle Profiling Project provide?

   The Motorcycle Profiling Project is designed to help your state with  every step involved in the process of passing a law addressing the issue  of motorcycle profiling. Based on the experiences and best practices of  the highly effective motorcycle rights movement in Washington State,  the Project will assist in organizing and preparing your state to take  effective grassroots action. The project provides organizational  recommendations, policy support materials, and legislative strategy.   This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Organizational strategy.
  • Coordinating COC’s and MRO’s in a unified effort.
  • Step-by-step Action Plan outlining the entire process, beginning to end.
  • Construct a state-specific Pattern of Evidence.
  • Drafting  a Policy Report/Written Testimony. This is the state’s official  statement on legislation addressing the issue of motorcycle profiling.
  • Drafting a Legislative Proposal and Legislative Packet
  • Drafting a Request for Sponsorship
  • Drafting CTA’s and correspondence to legislators.
  • Drafting testimony and providing testimony upon request, schedule permitting.
  • Media support and press releases.
