According to WDIV-TV 4 in Detroit, a proposal that would allow some motorcyclists to ride without a helmet has been approved by a Michigan Senate committee.
The law would allow riders 21 and older who have had two years of riding experience and who have passed a safety examination to ride without a helmet, the report said.
According to the report, previous attempts to ease Michigan's helmet laws were vetoed in 2006 and 2008 by then-Gov. Jennifer Granholm.
With in town, we've got plenty of cyclists in – and riding through – our community. So we're wondering what you think.
