Southfield, MI, May 11, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Michigan motorcycle accident lawyers of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently created a graphic on the state by state motorcycle helmet laws to visually display the helmet law requirements in every state. The idea behind the graphic was to aide bikers in their travels across Unites States.
Visit http://bit.ly/MIMotorcycleAccidentLawyers to view the “Motorcycle Helmet Law” Graphic.
The Motorcycle Helmet Law graphic is a map of the United States, with a color key that defines the helmet laws in each state. The map is displayed on the back of biker’s black-distressed leather jacket. There are five different variations in motorcycle helmet requirements; including Free Choice (no helmet restrictions) to No Choice (everyone riding a motorcycle must wear a bike helmet).
Michigan currently passed a new helmet law, Senate Bill 291, which allows motorcyclists to choose to wear a helmet if they are at least 21 years of age, carry additional insurance, and have passed a motorcycle safety course or have had their motorcycle endorsement for at least two years. This is displayed on the graphic, as you will see Michigan labeled as a state with requirements of “21 and older with Provisions.”
The Motorcycle Helmet Law graphic also shows which states have the highest fines and maximum jail time for violating their bike helmet law. This information is uniquely displayed on the motorcycle’s rear-view mirrors. Georgia is toughest on violators, with a $1,000 fine and 12 months of jail time, and Nevada comes in second, with a $1,000 fine and a maximum six months of jail time.
