Motorcyclists push again to make helmets optional
Advocates for motorcyclists, long stymied in their bid to make helmets optional for riders, yesterday invoked the Legislature’s change of heart on casino gambling - and the economic arguments that led to its recent passage - in a renewed push for a so-called helmet choice law. “Four years ago we weren’t going to pass gambling in Massachusetts. Now we have. I think adults should have that choice,’’ said Paul Cote, an advocate for the rights of motorcyclists.
