Helmet law in Missouri

For those who are interested, the Missouri Governor yesterday declined to sign legislation that would have repealed the current helmet law. Therefore, it is still the law in Missouri that a helmet must be worn when riding a motorcycle. This should put to rest any rumors that you won't be needing a helmet when riding in this state. Just thought I'd pass along for what its worth. Happy, and safe riding!

Helmet Law

Did Nixon veto the helmet law or just decline to sign. It is my understanding that if he declines to sign, but not veto, it automatically becomes law by default, on July 14. I believe that is the timeline that he needs to make a decision or let it become law without signing.

Best feeling in the world is flying down a mountian on two wheels or two boards!

The report I heard said it was veto'd. They said his main reason for vetoing it was Arkansas's fatality rate had increased 21% since they repealed the law in 1997. RV
