Motorcycle Helmet Law - Action Needed

Legislators may be voting on bills that will repeal the Missouri all-rider motorcycle helmet law by the end of this session on Friday, May 15th! Do your part!

The Brain Injury Association of Missouri and the Missouri Speech-Language Hearing Association are wanting speech and hearing professionals to reach out to their state senators and representatives as soon as possible. A repeal of the Missouri All-Rider Motorcycle Helmet Law would result in a 38% increase in motorcycle fatalities, 330 more motorcyclists in Missouri sustaining a moderate to severe brain injury, and a $3 million increase in taxpayer costs for injured motorcyclists. There is a 69% reduction in brain injuries when a motorcyclist wears a helmet.

When contacting your elected officials, request that the repeal of the Missouri all-rider motorcycle helmet law does not pass - VOTE NO on HCS for SB 686 and VOTE NO on SB 590.

When sending an email to your elected official, please include the Brain Injury Association of Missouri (Advocacy@biamo.org) as a CC or BCC.

For more information about the bills, contact the
Brain Injury Association of Missouri at Advocacy@biamo.org or 800-444-6443!

Thank you!
