Alaska students want helmet law

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

Too many motorcycle crashes in Alaska end in fatalities, say students at a school in the Anchorage, Alaska, school district, and that fact could be altered with a mandatory helmet-use law.

A story on says grade 8 students at Greuning Middle School who are participating in a class project have started a petition for a helmet law, written to the Anchorage police department’s chief and the city’s mayor, and spoken to the Anchorage Assembly about the need for a helmet law.

Alaska requires riders under 20 years old to wear helmet, but others have free choice. A Harley-Davidson dealer there does not agree that a helmet law would be useful in reducing fatalities. He says training and rider awareness are more important than helmets.
