Motorcycle Helmet Laws App Updated For Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month


(PRWEB) May 01, 2015

The month of May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Bikers in cold weather states are itching to take to the roads once again for travel and excitement on the roads and highways throughout the United States. Campaigns to encourage motorists to exercise safe driving practices for the protection of bikers are underway in a number of states, as well as from national motorcycle organizations.

Motorcycle helmet laws vary on a state by state basis. Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. a law firm specializing in motorcycle accident cases, created a free Motorcycle Helmet App to provide information on helmet to bikers riding their motorcycles across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. The App is available for the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android.

Michigan recently joined 27 other states that allow freedom of choice by the rider if the rider meets certain specifications (i.e., age, medical insurance, instructional permit, safety course, etc.). Nineteen states have universal helmet laws for all operators, and three states (Illinois, Iowa and New Hampshire) do not have a motorcycle helmet law.

Several states have bills and proposals to change the helmet law restrictions and requirements.

In Missouri, a proposed bill has moved to the State Senate which would make helmets optional for motorcyclists 21 years of age or older who have at least $ 50,000.00 of personal medical insurance.

In Tennessee, a proposed bill was passed out of the State Senate Transportation Committee and into the State Senate Finance, Ways and Means Committee which would make helmets optional for motorcyclists 21 or older who don’t have insurance through TennCare (the State’s Medicaid program).

In Nebraska, an effort was made to advance legislation which would have allowed riders of at least 21 years of age and wearing eye protection, the choice to ride without a helmet. However, the proposed bill did not receive enough support from the legislature to allow it to go to a vote.

In North Carolina, a bill has been proposed which would allow motorcyclists the option to ride without a helmet if they were at least 21 years of age, have been licensed to operate a motorcycle for at least one year, and carry at least $ 10,000.00 of insurance for medical benefits if involved in a motorcycle accident. The bill is set to be heard by various legislative committees.

In Delaware, motorcyclists that are over 19 years of age may ride without a helmet on their head, but must have a helmet in their “possession.” Currently, lawmakers have introduced proposed legislation which would mandate motorcyclists to wear helmets on their heads. The proposed legislation is set to appear before a legislative committee.

“Our Helmet Laws App is the best way for motorcyclists to know the laws in each state as they ride throughout the United States and in other countries.,” says Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. Managing Attorney Lawrence Buckfire. “Bikers no longer need to do an internet search every time they plan a trip or ride across state lines.”

In addition to the helmet laws, the App has other features including:

GPS Bike Finder allows users to place a GPS pin for their bike’s location and set a time for when the user needs to return. This feature also allows you to quickly and easily email your current location to your friends.
Submit images of cool helmets and see your images in the cool helmet gallery.
Utilize the accident checklist – what to do after a motorcycle accident.
Take and save photographs of motorcycle damage and accident scene.
