There is a movement happening in Ontario called BAN - Bikers Against Noise Bylaw.  They have a petition that you should consider signing.

They can accept signatures from anywhere on this petition!  So WHY should you get involved? Noise Bylaws are springing up everywhere, they are inconsistent, and often, too often the technologies used require the police to follow certain formulas and techniques that can be misrepresented as facts.   What do I mean by that? Well if the officer does not do the test accurately you can be inconvenienced and charged wrongfully.

These bylaws become an impediment to tourism - a mainstay of our economy, they are also discriminatory and many a municipality will say no other technology is available to measure cars and trucks noise but they wold be wrong and misinformed.  The Noise Snare catches everyone - so if the issue is really NOISE, then the Noise Snare should be being used.

Injustice - tarring all riders with the same brush - it's WRONG folks...

Here are a few quotes I came across about injustice and how it harms and how to resolve it....

“You just need to be a flea against injustice. Enough committed fleas biting strategically can make even the biggest dog uncomfortable and transform even the biggest nation.” ― Marian Wright Edelman

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

“It's my duty as a human being to be pissed off”
Eric Bogosian, subUrbia

If you choose not to get involved because you think it does not affect you, YOU WOULD BE WRONG - tarring every rider with the brush of inconsideration is as wrong as tarring every rider with the brush of criminal...
