AAA Michigan Urges All Motorcyclists To Wear Helmets

DEARBORN, Mich., April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AAA Michigan today, April 10, encouraged all motorcyclists to wear their helmets in Michigan, even though the law has been repealed.  A new study found if Michigan had not repealed its mandatory helmet law in 2012, there could have been 26 fewer motorcycle deaths and 49 fewer injuries.


As the one-year anniversary of the repeal of Michigan's mandatory motorcycle helmet law nears on April 13, AAA joined a broad coalition of law enforcement agencies, health care professionals, insurance companies – and motorcycle riders – at a news conference at the State Capitol Building in Lansing to urge motorcyclists to wear their helmets.

AAA Michigan also encourages legislators to reconsider the law, which erased more than three decades of Michigan's mandatory helmet law.  A new study by the University of Michigan Transportation Researcher Dr. Carol Flannagan supports what "Heads First Coalition" members, including AAA Michigan, have argued for years – that states whose mandatory helmet laws were repealed saw an increase in motorcycle fatalities and injuries.
