From this thread:
"...The Olympic Pennisula is a gorgeous place. We motored along enjoying the scenery and the fresh air and suddenly, around Aberdeen, WA we see red and blue lights behind us. We pull over, confused as to why.
The WA state trooper walks up to Jeff and starts going through the "License and registration" song and dance."
"...The tool gives Jeff some BS about it being illegal in Washington State to have a GoPro mounted to your helmet because kids on crotch rockets stop traffic and do stunting. WHAT!?!?!?! So he hands him a ticket that vaguely states, "Illegal M/C helmet."
So, I don't know if this is common Cop harrassing, or something new now, or what. Just about every second bike I see nowadays (including me) has a video camera mounted on the bike or helmet.
I'm assuming everyone would for sure fight this bogus ticket handing out with every effort, but jeez, what an uneeded extra fawking hassle to add to enjoying your ride!
