State Laws

Just found this interesting bit of info.

Admin, If I missed this somewhere else please delete, but a quick search showed no results. I have come across several threads that mention questions about different state laws. This little tool/site helps wade through some of the ambiguity <-(word of the day) and rules I believe.

Good stuff. Since I run the hell out of stop lights all the time, good to know it's legal.

Very interesting comparing moto regulations here in PA to the surrounding states. Ape Hangers are okay in PA and DE but prohibited elsewhere. NJ has no acoustical requirements! also no inspection. WV and NJ require reflective helmets. Modulating headlights permitted by Federal Regulation. I seem to be one of the few that use one, and was wondering if a cop would give me a hard time about it.

well, this is interesting...."reflective helmets"? hmm. I knew that WV., had/has a helmet law, but I didn't know that the helmets had to be "reflective"!?! wft? I can say this, the wife and I ride with helmets and every time we "whip a Buckeye across that River", we are legal, because we are wearing helmets. if what you say here is true, that would mean by our helmets not being "reflective", that would mean that indeed the wife and I are still not legal, even though we are indeed wearing helmets.......well, then, WV., you can just PISS OFF!

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

Yeah, no, I don't think that info is accurate about the reflective helmet law. Never heard of it, very few helmets available have anything reflective about them unless you stick it on yourself, and matte black seems to be all the rage these days.

Bet I can hit every local bike dealer or store that sells helmets and not find a single one with anything considered legally reflective.

I think if it this was a law here, the annual state inspection would include checking my helmet.

The link the website listed for this law, is dead.

Ky passed a red light law last summer. Sit long enough at a red light and you can legally run it.

after looking at the florida sound limits... it must be pretty much un-enforced.. that vast majority of bikes here in florida are using either open pipes, or muffs that are nearly open.. not just the HD's and other v-twins, but just about anything (with the exception of big 6 cylinder honda's, they are quiet as a church mouse).

Hell them six cylinder Hondas scream with a decent exhaust. Have heard a valkyrie with a custom exhaust.
