HELMET LAWS AND THE STATE OF Tennessee

Tennessee is one of only 19 states to require the driver of a motorcycle and any passenger to wear a helmet. The law not only takes away the individual liberty of motorcyclists in Tennessee and those traveling through the state; it costs the state significant tourism revenues.

By changing Tennessee’s motorcycle helmet law to include the freedom of choice for those ages 21 and up, Tennessee motorcyclists will have their rights restored, and the state will be one step closer to becoming a premier tourist destination.
