Thumbs down Ban on Motorcycles

The government has also announced a ban on the use of motorcycles in the area in northwest Pakistan. Taliban fighters often travel around the region on motorcycles.

The order was made the day before Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and Afghan President Hamid Karzai were due to meet Obama and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a series of tri-lateral meetings aimed at coordinating strategy in the region.

More than 132,000 (recently corrected higher) motorcycle riders have died in traffic crashes since the enactment of the Highway Safety Act of 1966 and The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966. Be careful out there.

Question Re: Ban on Motorcycles

Does this mean that a Taliban fighter will get a moving citation for riding a motorcycle while carrying an AK-47 and/or RPG? Darn it!

Re: Ban on Motorcycles

Do bad guys wear black hats and ride on motorcycles?
