            Washington D.C.: Motorcycle-only checkpoints challenged. On March 3, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) introduced H.R. 904. The legislation, with original co-sponsors Reps. Tom Petri (R-Wis.) and Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), would prohibit the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) "from providing grants or any funds to a state, county, town, or township, Indian tribe, municipal or other local government to be used for any program to check helmet usage or create checkpoints for a motorcycle driver or passenger."
            The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which is part of the DOT, recently gave Georgia a $70,000 grant to conduct one or more roadside motorcycle-only checkpoints. New York State has operated a similar program using state funds. The AMA has been tracking this disturbing development of motorcycle-only checkpoints since it first appeared in New York several years ago.
