Motorcycle Only Checkpoints and the Fourth Amendment
For the past several years, motorcyclists across the country have been hearing about motorcycle only checkpoints. Let me now go on record as being vehemently opposed to such checkpoints as I believe that they serve no purpose. Motorcycle only checkpoints are checkpoints where only motorcycles are stopped in order to check for operating licenses, safety equipment, etc. In New York, motorcyclists have challenged the legality of such checkpoints due to the method in which they are being conducted (we will come back to New York later in this article). Georgia has announced that they will begin conducting motorcycle only checkpoints in March to coincide with Daytona Bike week.
