The State of Florida is attempting to get tough on motorcyclists riding recklessly, with the introduction of a new bill in the State House of Representatives.

HB137 2008 specifies that if a law enforcement officer charges a person with reckless driving, or driving 30mph over the speed limit, and who was riding a motorcycle at the time, the officer must arrest the rider, take him or her into custody, and seize the motorcycle, which will be subject to forfeiture under
Florida's Contraband Forfeiture Act.

If that person is convicted, the court will order the Department of Motor Vehicles to revoke their motorcycle endorsement, and leave them only with the ability to drive a cage.

I'm not familiar enough with Florida law to know if there's already a similar law for people driving a car recklessly.

If the bill is signed into law, it will take effect October 1, 2008.

The bill was filed last week.
