Should Michigan Rid Itself Of Helmet Law?
The Michigan Senate passed a proposal to allow some motorcycle riders to go without a helmet yesterday. This would allow most riders 21 or older to go helmetless if they have been licensed to operate a motorcycle for at least two years, passed a safety course & get some extra insurance coverage.
Now it's off to the House for approval. The Legislature has passed bills to get rid of the state's mandatory motorcycle helmet law before but the measures were vetoed by then-Gov. Jennifer Granholm in 2006 and 2008. Will nerdy Gov. Rick Snyder sign the legislation if it reaches his desk?
What about You? Do you favor the proposal?
