Motorcycle Helmet Law Debate Heats Up Again

by

LANSING, MI (WHTC) - Proponents of restoring Michigan’s mandatory motorcycle helmet law heaped more ammunition for their argument on state lawmakers this week, citing a University of Michigan study showing that 26 deaths and 49 injuries could have been prevented if the law hadn’t been repealed last year. Jim Rhoades of ABATE, the group who led the effort in striking down the restriction, told WHTC's Diane Coston that their statisticians dispute those figures, and believes that education is more important than helmets in biker safety. Capitol observers don’t believe that this issue would be revived in this current legislative session.
