Public Saftey 7-20-07
A bill headed to the governor would require motorcycle and moped riders to wear helmets that meet federal safety standards. The existing law requires only that the state Division of Motor Vehicles commissioner approve the helmets. The federal standard is stricter. The proposal, House Bill 563, also includes a provision that would allow local governments to regulate protests along state roads. The Senate approved the bill this week and House concurred with the new version.
