Utah Committee Approves New Helmet Legislation

February 24, 2009

A legislative committee in Utah has approved a bill that would reward motorcycle riders for wearing helmets.

While the House Transportation Committee tabled a bill that would have required riders under age 21 to wear helmets, a bill sponsored by Rep. Ronda Rudd Menlove, R-Garland allows motorcyclists cited for traffic violations to have $10 knocked off the fine if they were wearing a helmet.

Currently, anyone under age 18 in Utah is required to wear a helmet while riding.
