An excellent article in the Detroit Free Press written by an ABATE member in Michigan. Please comment and politely educate the cagers that are ignorant.

"Our state's economy  is based on tourism, and this law discourages out-of-state riders from traveling to this great state.

Our outdated helmet law is a barrier to motorcycle tourism. At the same time, the current law does nothing to reduce motorcycle injuries and fatalities. Michigan is the only Great Lakes state with a mandatory helmet law. Surveys repeatedly show that an overwhelming majority of motorcyclists in neighboring states refuse to visit Michigan because of this law."
