Teens pushing for helmet law won’t give up

An effort by a group of teenagers to pass a helmet law for underage mo-ped drivers again failed to advance in the Senate when introduced the first week of March.

The campaign to change the state law, making it mandatory for underage mo-ped drivers to wear helmets, was initiated by friends of Caroline Found, who died in a mo-ped crash almost two years ago. Despite encountering many roadblocks, Leah Murray, Olivia Lofgren, and Caroline Van Voorhis are undeterred to pass the law, even if it takes years.

Motorcycle advocates opposed the bill in February after Murray and Lofgren testified before a Senate subcommittee.

Should this law ever be passed, it may save the lives and well-being of many riders; however, many motorcyclists currently are suffering serious injuries as a result of the negligent actions of others.
