This is becoming an epidemic. More and more cities, even countries, are banning motorcycles from riding at night or during specific periods of the day (see related articles below for a few of them).

The latest victim is Lebanon. As elsewhere the authorities in Beirut have deemed that motorcycles are a menace to society, since they are used by assassins, burglars, rapists, child molesters, bank robbers and people who eat too much. To prevent all this from happening, the authorities have placed a curfew on all motorcycles in their city. From 19:00 (7 PM) to 05:00 (5 AM), no PTWPowered Two Wheel - motorcyles, scooters, mopeds are allowed to ride in the city.

A series of protests followed the interdiction, but so far to no avail. In a city where the average salary is €400, very few people can afford a car, so they need to get around by motorcycles. Now they have been banned from going out at night.

Jail Time For Biker

NOTE to the Lebanese government: Are 100% of all the criminal activities done by motorcycle? Because I am sure that there are also quite a lot that use a car. So you need to be fair and ban all cars as well. And probably buses, since often criminals just melt away in the crowds and take a bus. And has never a criminal taken a taxi? And come to think of it, aren't there are few politicians that are criminals? I think therefore that politicians should be banned as well, and not only at night.

Stupid and senseless politicians. You can read more about this by clicking here Open You can read more about this by clicking here link in a new window.

Really! It really looks like politicians are dumb creatures anywhere in the world. It doesn't matter where you live, if there are politicians you know that a) your life has become complicated and b) they enrich themselves.

Why ban motorcycles for 5 days to ensure that a conference is safe? The mind boggles....
