Michigan Repeals Helmet Law [Video]
Now that you can ride a motorcycle without a helmet, will you? I understand the feeling of wanting to ride wit the wind in your hair, but do you honestly think it’s the smartest choice?
Don’t get me wrong I’m a huge fan of motorcycles, and to tell you the truth I probably would ride maybe around the corner to my local store on my bike, but going on the highway without a helmet? F##k That..
(www.csmonitor.com)Motorcyclists in Michigan can now ride without a helmet after Gov. Rick Snyder (R) signed legislation Friday repealing a 35-year-old safety requirement.
By backing the bill, Governor Snyder made Michigan the 31st state to provide that option. Motorcyclists who want to ride without a helmet must be 21 and have passed a motorcycle safety course within the past two years. The new requirement also is a boon for the insurance industry: motorcyclists must carry at least an additional $20,000 in medical insurance.
