Senate votes to repeal helmet law; House next?

 

March 17, 2005 - 4:05PM  

LANSING (AP) - The state Senate has passed a bill allowing motorcyclists 21 and over to hit the streets without a helmet. Senators in the past have refused to the change the law.

 

Some riders say they deserve a right to choose whether to wear helmets. They argue that helmets don't prevent accidents and that every state surrounding Michigan gives riders the option to not wear the head gear.

 

Opponents say the public should be protected from the financial risks of going without helmets.

 

Under the requirements, motorcyclists have to be licensed for at least two years or have finished safety course training.

 

The bill now goes to the House.

The house passed it last year and the senate sat on it, did not vote on it. Lets see what games they come up with this year. I think dare I say our Woman Gov. Granholm will not sign if it passes both houses. We Have been fighting for this for over thirty years.  :veryangry:

If they do change it I know for a fact hundreds of us around here will be riding in Michigan and spending money we don't with the helmet law.

We were planning a trip to the UP, but decided not because of the helmet law.. Going to stay in Northern Wisc. instead....  :moped:

You guys actually have plates for all your bikes and trailers?  I have 1 for both bikes (switch it back and forth when needed)same for the bike trailer and boat trailer - When do you ever use them both at the same time?  Switch em out!  Fuck spending all that money..... :veryangry:

Couldn’t take it any more had to get the bike out yesterday and ride.   Damm it was great.  Woke up to snow this morning that sucked.  

 

Maybe someone should give the Gov a ride on the back of a Chief she would sign it.
