Michigan Helmet Law Repealed

Michiganders are debating the surprising April 13, 2012 repeal of Michigan’s long-standing helmet law.

While motorcyclists rejoice, others express concern that the change could raise other motorists’ insurance premiums and lead to more motorcycle fatalities and injuries.

The bottom line is Motorcycle helmets are no longer mandatory for all riders and passengers in Michigan, though there was confusion Friday about who could legally ride without one and how a more permissive law would be enforced, according to a DETROIT FREE PRESS article posted last week that you can read by clicking HERE.

The FREEP reports, “Motorcyclists must be at least 21 and carry $20,000 in medical insurance.

“Motorcycle owners said they were having a hard time Friday finding out what insurance they need and how to buy it. Officials at two companies that sell motorcycle insurance — AAA and Progressive — were unable to estimate how much $20,000 worth of medical insurance would cost.

Motorcycle riders who choose to ride without helmets also must pass a safety course or have their motorcycle endorsement for at least two years.”

  • Dear Mr. Mindell,
    Your slogan states: “Experience Dedication Success”. I believe in my heart, strongly added to that should have been, “Honest Fair Integrity”. For those are the finest principles in you, and that was my experience of what you most importantly instilled and guide your practice on. Thank you so much. I do so respect you.
