I never knew Motorcycle-Safes were so popular that production was high-enough to warrant an entire highway dedicated to transportation and delivery of them...................

Ha!

The thing that amazes me is the idiotic beliefs of bureaucrats and do-gooders. No transportation related fatalities indeed. The only way to do that is to stop transportation from occurring at all. Wait a couple of years and their stats will show that m/c fatalities haven't changed. What will be the next step in "protecting" us? I shudder to think.

This isn't going to end well.

At least they're trying to do something good for riders. On the other hand, in New York a female motorcyclist just spent two and a half years fighting with the State over motorcycle access to the HOV lanes. Access is guaranteed by Federal law. She was ticketed for riding in the HOV. She fought, and eventually won. So, what does the State of NY do? Begins lobbying the Feds for a change in the law so they can legally ban bikes from the HOV lane. Their excuse is "safety of the motorists." Sweet Jesus. There's a write up about it in this month's AMA mag.

Didn't I read somewhere that Norway has some REALLY strict road laws. Something ridiculous like extremely high fees for speeding tickets. And speeding tickets for a mile over the speeding limit. Gotta find that....

Found it, here it is:
--------------------------------------------
Here are the current speeding fines:

Speed limit 60 km/h or lower - driving 1-5 km/h above the limit will result in a 600 NOK ticket, and
6-10 km/h - 1600 NOK
11-15 km/h - 2900 NOK
16-20 km/h - 4200 NOK
21-25 km/h - 6500 NOK

Speed limit 70 km/h or higher - driving 1-5 km/h above the limit will result in a 600 NOK ticket, and
6-10 km/h - 1600 NOK
11-15 km/h - 2600 NOK
16-20 km/h - 3600 NOK
21-25 km/h - 4900 NOK
26-30 km/h - 6500 NOK
31-35 km/ - 7800 NOK - that's ca 950 euro, or 1250 USD!;o)

Not wearing your seat belt will result in a 750 NOK ticket.
