Via Fark, Nevada's legislators are preventing homeowners' associations from ticketing motorcyclists.
The move is designed to prevent homeowners' boards from banning motorcycles on aesthetic or other grounds.
[Rep. Francis] Allen's measure also bans associations from using radar guns or any "other device designed to gauge the speed of a vehicle" for the purpose of issuing fines. The provision, in effect, stops associations from issuing speeding tickets within a community. In 2005, a Texas state legislator proposed a bill that would have given a green light to community speeding tickets. The proposal failed.
The rights alotted to motorcycle riders are good acid test of whether a state is going overboard stopping consensual or "aesthetic" crimes. In 2005, Jacob Sullum explained why motorcyle helmet laws haven't quite swept the nation.
