Hearing to repeal Washington State’s motorcycle helmet law
01/31/2013 - 12:32
Today there is a hearing in the Senate Transportation Committee on a bill to repeal Washington State’s helmet law which requires all adult motorcycle riders to wear a helmet. If the bill eventually passes, Washington will join 28 other states that have passed similar laws.
Proponents of this bill say that helmet laws aren’t necessary or proper because it is unfair to require motorcyclists to wear helmets while drivers of other types of vehicles are not required to, even though helmets for all drivers would save lives. They believe that it should be a rider’s choice to wear a helmet or not.
Opponents of the bill say that if the law is repealed, there will be an increase in injury accidents and fatalities, and that numerous studies have clearly shown that helmet usage saves lives.
