Helmetless Motorcycle Fatalities

According to M-Live, state Police data shows that while about one fourth of motorcyclists in Michigan now ride without a helmet, helmetless riders accounted for nearly one half of motorcycle fatalities in 2013. Supporters of an effort to bring back the state’s motorcycle helmet law say its more evidence that riders without helmets are more likely to die or suffer serious injuries in a crash than riders who wear helmets. M-Live reports however that a proposal in Lansing to prohibit riding without a helmet is going nowhere, and is likely to die in committee when the current legislature comes to an end in December.
