Helmet Law Bill

Representative Dan Frankel, of Allegheny County, has introduced House Bill 1253, a bill to require Pennsylvania motorcyclists to wear protective equipment, namely helmets. This year he has been able to persuade eight other House members to cosponsor his misguided legislation. They are Representatives Adolph, Freeman, Josephs, Killion, Kirland, Melio, Santarsiero, and Watson. While there are only eight cosponsors this session, as opposed to ten last session and fourteen the previous session, this threat must still be taken very seriously. It proves again that there are legislators eager to snatch your freedoms at a moment’s notice with total disregard for your right to make your own choice in the use of safety equipment.
