New Legislation Would Allow ORV Use Without Helmets on Private Property
In Lansing this week — The Michigan State Legislature has passed a bill that would exempt ORV riders from wearing a helmet on private property.
House bill 51-91 was originally introduced in December and amends the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act of 1994.
The new bill states that an individual on an ORV needs to wear a helmet and protective eyewear that is approved by the Department of Transportation unless they’re on private property.

The bill now heads to Governor Snyder to be signed into law.
