  CTA - HB 748 - January 12, 2019 - Repeal Of Texas Helmet Law

What is the CTA about?

Late Friday evening, January 11, 2019, we learned that a bill was filed to repeal the current sections of Texas Transportation Code addressing helmet requirements. Specifically, this bill would repeal all exceptions allowing a rider to not wear a helmet. If passed, this would return Texas, a state known for personal freedoms and accountability, back to a mandatory helmet use state. It would be a Class C Misdemeanor to operate your motorcycle without a helmet.

 

 

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

1.Contact Representative Victoria Neave’s (District 107/Dallas County) office and express your disapproval in a clear, deliberate, and precise manner. A link to her contact information is listed here.

• Capitol Phone:
(512) 463-0244 
(512) 463-9967 Fax
• District Phone:
(972) 288-9438

2. Contact your local representative and let them know that, as their constituent, you stand firmly against this assault on adult personal choice and accountability. The link to find your representative’s contact information can be found here.

3. Contact our new Speaker of the House, Dennis Bonnen’s office and let him know that you stand firmly against this assault on adult personal choice and accountability. As a freshman, he supported our current helmet law as written. His information can be found here.

4. Share the posts, Show up, and Seal the deal. This has to be a grassroots movement which requires a social media presence, phone calls, and email/fax campaign. Many hands make light work.

5. Finally, and most important, show up. It cannot be expressed any simpler than that. Show up on January 28, 2019 for Texas Biker Legislative Day. Be seen. Show up to Representative Neave’s office and politely but firmly express your dissent. Show up to your representative’s office and politely but firmly express your dissent. If you live in Dallas County, show up to her office and politely but firmly express your dissent. Regardless of any misguided or emotional motivations presented by Rep. Neaves, Texas motorcyclists will not stand by while personal liberties are threatened. We need to stand up, be seen, be heard, and put this attempt to bed.
