Michigan Helmet Law Repealed

E.U. should take note and do as US and Greece do. I personally wear a helmet (actually have a bunch of helmets for me & passenger, for different conditions), but that should be just because I choose to, not because I have to.

Since Friday April 13, 2012, helmets are no longer mandatory for all riders and passengers in Michigan. Gov. Rick Snyder signed the bill, which received bipartisan support, on Thursday and announced the change Friday.T he law has immediate effect but sets conditions to legally ride without a helmet. Motorcyclists must be at least 21 and carry $20,000 in medical insurance. Those who ride without helmets also must pass a safety course or have their motorcycle endorsement for at least two years. Shannon Banner, a spokeswoman for the Michigan State Police, said the law does not require motorcycle operators to carry proof of the medical coverage, proof they have had their motorcycle endorsement for two years or proof they have completed a safety course. “Officers may not stop a motorcycle operator for not wearing a helmet based on the mere possibility the operator or passenger may not be exempt from the requirement to wear a helmet,” the state police said in a an update sent to local police agencies Friday. Michigan, which had required motorcycle helmets for more than 40 years, is the 31st state to make helmets optional. Snyder’s office said Michigan joins the Great Lakes states of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Pennsylvania.
