PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island - The Rhode Island State Senate is currently debating the matter of restricting motorcycle traffic within the state.
Senator Pearl P. Dafty [R-Providence] informed the news media that Rhode Island is basically a very nice, quiet, peaceful state.
She added that the citizens of Rhode Island love the fact that there is hardly any hustle and bustle to speak off.
Many citizens of the smallest state in the nation have expressed that they are elderly and they do not like having to put up with the loud, incessant noise that comes from motorcycles.
One elderly citizen identified as Janalyn Manatee, 71, of Narragansett said that the noise has gotten worse in just the past 13 months.
She pointed out that she has to use a walker and whenever she hears the loud roar of a motorcycle it makes her very nervous and on a few occasions she has peed without even knowing it.
Mrs. Manatee pointed out that if the motorcycle noise is restricted to between the hours of 1 PM and 8 AM it will help people in the same condition as she is in.
Senator Dafty stated that she knows that the motorcycle people are not going to like this idea and things could get downright ugly as they say down on the U.S. Gulf Coast.
