Am I Required to Wear a Motorcycle Helmet in Michigan?

August 15, 2018

The state of Michigan terminated the required use of motorcycle helmets in 2012. This allowed motorcyclists to ride without the use of a helmet but only under peculiar circumstances. The requirements for going helmet less include that you must have additional health insurance of $20,000, be over the age of 21, exposure to controlling a motorcycle for a minimum of two years or you must pass a motorcycle safety test as an alternative. Most motorcyclists choose to ride without the protective aide of a helmet. Rates show that 79% of female motorcyclists and 70% of male motorcyclists dress in motorcycle protective gear such as helmets.

Some legislators concern that there will be a significant increase in fatal and serious injuries since the updated law has passed. Injury claims are disclosed to increase in value because of more severe injuries to motorcyclists who are controlling motorcycles helmet less. A Michigan motorcycle crash lawyer at Moss & Colella can help you or a loved one if they have been injured in a accident.

A dilemma for a motorcyclist is other divers on the road. Many SUV, car, truck, and even drivers of commercial vehicles fail to watch for motorcyclist on the road. Statistics have shown that 29 mph is the speed that is usually generated when an accident occurs involving motorcycles. This indicates that the source of the problem is not the speed or reckless driving of the motorcyclist. The risks that a motorcyclist who chooses to go helmet less may face did not change after the law update.
