Colorado Links Brain Injury Funds With Helmet Fines

In a daring move, Colorado voters might encourage TBI prevention by
forcing riders to wear helmets–and if they don’t, a portion of their
fines could go to a brain injury trust fund.

“Her bill, which now will be debated by the full House, would prohibit
a person under 18 from riding on a motorcycle or motorized bicycle
without an approved helmet, properly secured with a chin strap. It
would punish the driver with 3 points on his or her driver’s license
and $125 of fines and costs, including $10 for the Colorado Traumatic
Brain Injury Trust Fund.”
