Maine House OKs Helmet Law Change

April 3, 2009

A bill to tighten up Maine’s motorcycle helmet law is moving forward in the Legislature.

The bill would require anyone under 18 who is operating or riding on a motorcycle to wear a helmet. The present law applies to those under 15.

The measure received initial House approval Tuesday and faced a further vote Thursday before it goes to the Senate.

A separate bill calling for a helmet law applying to all riders and operators remains in the Transportation Committee, which is scheduled to discuss it today.
