Bill to repeal Tennessee helmet law defeated

A Tennessee senate committee voted down a bill on March 26 that would have repealed the state’s helmet law for adults 21 and older.  The bill had been opposed by The Automobile Association of America who said that it would lead to more highway deaths. A survey conducted by AAA in October found 91 percent of Tennesseans were in favor of the current helmet law. The following is a link to some interesting helmet use statistics published by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety:  http://www.iihs.org/iihs/topics/t/motorcycles/fatalityfacts/motorcycles
