  • by: Perry Sanders III

There is a story floating around social media that claims multiple states are planning on implementing a motorcycle curfew. Lead Stories has fact-checked the bogus article and proven it to be a HOAX.

11 states working in conjunction with the U.S Department of Transportation (U.D.O.T) have agreed to implement an ordinance requiring motorcyclists to adhere to a mandatory curfew between the hours of 11:00 PM - 6:00 AM.

Representatives from the 11 states that have agreed to the ordinance (South Dakota, Florida, Washington, Arkansas, California, New Hampshire, Indiana, Nevada, South Carolina, Utah, & Kentucky), have said that their states will be implementing the ordinance as soon as early April 2016 and expect all motorcyclists to be in compliance immediately upon implementation. All states have agreed to implement the ordinance by July 3rd 2016.

Whereas most websites list a satire disclaimer to inform the reader that the story is bogus, this one does not. The website associatedmediacoverage may sound legit, but we can assure you it's not. Not only was the website created a mere two weeks ago, but the U.S. Department of Transportation employee named, Donald McCarthy, is not listed anywhere among among DOT representatives.
