Motorcycle Helmet Laws: Innovative Approaches to Reducing Injury

Thursday, November 19th from
12 – 1:30 p.m. (ET)

 

Motorcycle helmets are one of the most important pieces of safety equipment for motorcyclists. Helmets can help reduce the severity of head injuries and even the likelihood of death. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a total of 4,381 motorcyclists died in crashes in 2013. Currently, 19 states and the District of Columbia have laws requiring all motorcyclists to wear a helmet, 28 states have partial helmet laws that require helmet use by young riders, and three states have no helmet law. This webinar will provide an overview of states’ motorcycle helmet laws, discuss the recent “Rider’s Choice” legislation in New Mexico, and examine the impact of helmet laws on injury and mortality rates across the country.

  • Colleen Healy, J.D., Policy Analyst, Michigan Primary Care Association
