ABATE: Governor Signs Helmet Choice Law
Michigan joins 30 other states to allow adult choice on helmet use, toughens standards
LANSING– After 46 years, Michigan now joins 30 other states in amending the mandatory helmet law in favor of adult choice. The Michigan legislature overwhelmingly approved SB 291 with broad bi-partisan support and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed Public Act 98 into law, yesterday. The new law modernizes Michigan’s outdated mandatory helmet law, which was a holdover from bygone days leaving Michigan, in the minority—one of only 20 states left enforcing an empty federal mandate.
