It’s DONE!! Anti-Profiling Bill Signed Into Law

On Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 5:03pm, Idaho Governor Brad Little signed SB1292 into law, making Idaho the fourth state in the Union to pass such legislation. Hey — if it weren’t for this stupid virus thing, we’d be having a party! That’s coming though, I’m sure. Stay tuned. Personal note from the TechMaster: I […]

April General Meeting Canceled

Because of everything that has been going on lately, it has become necessary to cancel the April general business meeting. The City of Meridian has seen fit to restrict gatherings at restaurants and other facilities to 10 people or less, with 6 ft of separation — which obviously makes a meeting impractical. “Under authority provided […]

2020 JAMR Rescheduled YET AGAIN

  Due to circumstances totally beyond our control, we have had to reschedule the 2020 Jim Adams Memorial Ride to June 6, 2020. The panic situation over the coronavirus is forcing restaurants and bars to close or restrict activity (even the VFW), municipalities are forcibly limiting gatherings of people — unfortunately we have no alternative. With other rides […]

Idaho Anti-Profiling Bill S1292 Passed in Idaho Senate

Today the Idaho State Senate passed our anti-profiling bill … now onto the House!

If you think this doesn’t happen in Idaho, guess again …

Idaho law enforcement targets motorcyclists daily, based solely on their appearance or the type of motorcycle they ride. Clubs, sport bike riders, or individuals, no one is immune.

Freedom of the Road

If you believe, as we do, that motorcyclists in Idaho should be free from restrictive laws and regulations and not be targeted by law enforcement simply for their appearance or the type of motorcycle they ride, you belong with us.

Make a Difference

Do not believe that laws affecting motorcyclists in Idaho are inevitable and unavoidable. We can make a difference, but only if we make ourselves heard by legislators.

The last 30 years have seen the progression of the nanny-state from lawmakers. The only way we can stop this in its tracks as it pertains to motorcyclists is to be involved.

Awareness

Apathy is the root cause of loss of rights. Be aware of the legislative actions that may impact your life in a profound way. One of the missions of ABATE of Idaho is to track issues at the legislative level that may affect Idaho motorcyclists.

You can help us fulfill that mission by becoming involved. When you learn of something that might affect you, pick up the phone to your local Representative or Senator. Write an email. Write a letter (we do, often. snail mail is not dead).

Profiling

ABATE of Idaho is not anti-law enforcement. We strongly advocate for anti-profiling legislation to stop the discrimination against motorcyclists simply for what they choose to wear or what they choose to ride.

Claims that profiling is necessary and useful in the effort by law enforcement authorities to fight street crime are patently false.

Such claims by some state and local law enforcement personnel were in large part responsible for the defeat of the latest ABATE-led attempt to pass anti-profiling legislation in Idaho.

Help us stop profiling in Idaho

With progress at the national level against profiling of motorcyclists (see this), the State of Idaho, great as it is, is behind the times in protecting the rights of its citizens against misconduct by law enforcement. Work with ABATE to correct these injustices.
