New Mexico Accomplishments


March 9, 2015
A recent release went out about the great work being done by the motorcyclists in New Mexico to defeat two helmet law attempts. The Motorcycle Riders Foundation would like to apologize for failing to give credit to multiple organizations in New Mexico. The organizations who did the work, and do deserve the credit are, New Mexico Motorcycle Rights Organization, Coalition of Clubs, US Defenders, National Coalition of Motorcyclists, and many independent riders.

S.B. 327 would have simply mandated helmets for all motorcycle operators and passengers. Current law states that motorcyclists seventeen and under must wear a helmet. The second bill, S.B. 308, would have allowed both operator and passenger to ride helmet-less after purchasing a $697 license plate sticker to offset the burden that some believe comes with helmet-less riding. Both bills were killed in the New Mexico Senate Public Affairs Committee by a vote of 4-3.

Congratulations to the freedom fighting motorcyclists of New Mexico for the hard work and dedication to defeat these two bills.
