Helmet Law Repeal

November 4, 2011 by staff 

Helmet Law Repeal, The state House approved a measure that would allow riders to experienced riders are over 21 years of ignoring Michigan helmet requirement. The measure passed on a bipartisan vote require pilots who want to get rid of their helmets to lead to higher insurance coverage. But opponents of the repeal say that’s not enough.

State Rep. Pedro Petallia say helmets do not help high-speed racers crashes and repealing the law does not affect the cost of coverage.

“I would not carry this torch today if I were not convinced of the safety of not wearing a helmet,” he says.

“These financial costs have risen to be picked up by someone,” state Rep. Joan Bauer responds, who says that if the costs do not result in higher insurance rates, which could be picked up by Medicaid. “And I’m afraid the rest of us will have the responsibility of those who choose not to wear a helmet.”

Gov. Rick Snyder has remained silent on this bill, but has said he is against anything that would raise the price of insurance or the cost to taxpayers.
