No-helmet proposal to get another ride

The Associated Press

LINCOLN - A bill that would let motorcyclists go helmet-free in Nebraska will get another ride.

On Wednesday, the Legislature’s Transportation and Telecommunications Committee advanced a measure (LB200) that would allow bikers 21 years old and older to ride without helmets.

The committee vote means the bill introduced by Sen. Charlie Janssen of Fremont will likely be debated by the full Legislature. Last year, the bill got stuck in committee.

Similar measures have failed in the past, including in 2008.

The majority of states let people ride motorcycles without helmets, but safety concerns have persuaded Nebraska lawmakers to require helmets.
