Deputies with the York County Sheriff’s Office issued citations to roughly 20 percent of the motorcycles stopped at an inspection checkpoint Sunday.

The deputies stopped 116 motorcycles on Route 1 in Arundel checking to make sure they had been inspected and that the riders were aware of new motorcycle laws that took affect this month, according to a press release from Sheriff Maurice Ouellette.

The deputies issued 21 tickets for motorcycles not being inspected and one for not being legally registered. The deputies also stopped 21 cars and gave out six tickets for not having an inspection sticker, the release said.

Motorcyclists were told that a new state law makes it illegal to modify a bike to increase exhaust noise, requires a headlight to be on at all times and restricts the height of handlebars.

Additional motorcycle checkpoints are scheduled for later this summer in Kennebunk and Kennebunkport.
