Motorcycle helmet bill could generate money for Michigan

A bill making its way through Michigan’s legislature would allow the state’s motorcyclists to ride without a helmet, according to WZZM13 News in Grand Rapids, Mich.

The bill passed in the House Thursday, Oct. 11, and now moves to the Senate. If passed, riders over the age of 21 would have the option to pay $100 annually for a special permit or $200 for a three-year permit to ride without a helmet, which could generate about $25 million for Michigan.

However, for riders to obtain the permit, they must have two years of riding experience or go through a training class.
