Why the helmet law repeal will cause more motorcycle accident injuries and deaths in Michigan, other states
I was recently interviewed, as a motorcycle accident lawyer for nearly 20 years, on an Internet radio show about Michigan’s motorcycle helmet repeal. The helmet repeal law is awaiting Governor Snyder’s pen, and it will end our nearly 40-year-old motorcycle helmet law requirement. This is all a very bad idea.
The new law allows Michigan motorcyclists who are at least 21 years old to ride without a helmet. As I’ve been saying all along, this law will cause more motorcycle accident injuries, more deaths and will leave the taxpayers holding the bill.
