A bill to ban motorcycle profiling by law enforcement is revving up more support inside the Idaho Capitol.
The Senate Judiciary & Rules committee heard testimony on the bill on Wednesday.
House Bill 123 defines motorcycle profiling as “the arbitrary use of the fact that a person rides a motorcycle or wears motorcycle-related paraphernalia as a factor in deciding to stop and question, take enforcement action, arrest or search a person or vehicle."
"Law enforcement should be based on a person's behavior and not on their mode of expression," David "Double D" Devereaux of the Motorcycle Profiling Project said. "What I think is important for people to understand is that people from all walks of life are in the motorcycle community."
The bill now heads to the Senate floor for a vote.
