Helmet law revived in TN Legislation; AAA calls bill dangerous

Posted: Updated:

AAA is looking to put the brakes on a law that would allow Tennessee motorcyclists the option of wearing a helmet or not.  The bill has been revived and is advancing in the state legislature. 

The measure passed a Senate Transportation Committee Wednesday, the same committee who voted it down, just last month.
Tennessee law currently requires all motorcycle drivers to wear a helmet. The new one would allow insurance-having motorcyclists to ride with out a helmet legally.  

AAA calls the bill dangerous and adds it would be impossible to enforce and would lead to more deaths and injuries.

The bill now goes to the Senate Finance Committee.
