Helmet Law Bill is Signed by Governor

On April 13, 2012, Governor Rick Snyder has announced his decision to sign Senate Bill 291.

This new law allows motorcycle operators to ride WITHOUT A HELMET if they are age 21 or older. They must have at least $20,000 of first party (medical benefits) insurance coverage. Plus, they must have had an endorsement for more than 2 years OR by taking a certified motorcycle safety course and receiving an endorsement.

Your passenger may also ride helmetless if they are at least age 21 and are also covered with at least $20,000 of first party benefits. What this means is that if the passenger does not have insurance on their own, you may need to buy an additional $20,000 of this coverage, in addition to your own.

When you need a Michigan motorcycle accident attorney who rides call me.
