Missouri motorcycle helmet legislation returns
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - A Missouri lawmaker wants to lift a state law requiring all motorcyclists wear a helmet.
Newly elected state Rep. Shane Roden of Cedar Hill recently filed legislation that would require only minors to wear helmets.
Those with learner's permits also would need to wear a helmet while driving.
Anyone driving or riding as a passenger on a motorcycle now must to wear a helmet or face a maximum $25 fine.
A similar bill that would lift the helmet requirement for those 21 and older failed last session.
The measure passed the House but never made it to the Senate floor.
