HARTFORD, CT – Members of the motorcycle riding community who advocate for choice when it comes to helmet usage can once again breath easy. The Transportation Committee at the Connecticut General Assembly removed a provision from a bill that would have made universal head protection mandatory before voting the bill out of committee.

In a 28-8 vote Wednesday, the committee voted in favor of  substitute version of H.B. 7140 that failed to contain any reference to helmet use, a victory for those who proclaim “Let Those Who Ride Decide” and for the Connecticut Motorcycle Riders Association, which has opposed helmet legislation for decades.

However, also getting voted out of committee on a 30-6 vote was H.B. 6161, which would require all riders under 21 years of age to wear a helmet. That bill, which wasn’t opposed by the C.M.R.A., now goes to the House for consideration. Under current law only riders under 18 must wear a helmet.

Sounds good to me.  Now also make 21 the age of consent for sex, drugs & seatbelts!
