AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 21 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO MOTORCYCLES.
Currently every motorcycle rider is required to have a helmet in his or her possession while riding. This bill requires that the person, along with any passengers, actually wear a helmet. Currently, 19 states and the District of Columbia require all motorcyclists to wear a helmet. Since 2014, of the 15 motorcycle fatalities in Delaware, only 6 were wearing helmets at the time of crash.
