Mandatory Helmet Law – Again?

A bill to reinstate a mandatory helmet law for motorcyclists in Michigan was introduced on Oct 22, 2014, by Senator Rebeka Warren.

The new bill, SB 1120, reinstating a mandatory helmet law is currently in the Senate Transportation Committee.   The link to the Transportation Committee Home Page is:  You will find contact information for each committee member on this page.  We all need to stay vigilant and  contact the members of the Transportation Committee and let them know we do not want this bill passed out of committee!

No Mandatory Helmet Law.  Stop SB 1120 Now!

House Bill 4781: Revise motorcycle “learner’s permit” detail

Passed 38 to 0 in the Senate on April 22, 2014, to revise details of a motorcycle operators license “learners permit,” which applies to license applicants who have not yet passed a motorcycle skills test and have not taken an optional safety course. Under current law the 180-day “learner’s permit” only allows riding under the supervision of a person who has a regular motorcycle license (“indorsement”). The bill would prohibit more than two such “learners permits” in a 10-year period.
