Appears that it became effective in 1989. Has it been enforced regularly? Or even at all?
I haven't been stopped often here in Ohio. When I have been stopped my earplugs were in and I was not cited. Other riders I know have been cited. I have not heard from my State Senator or State Rep. I was on The Ohio Riders Web Site this morning and it looks like a bill was passed in the State Senate. We will see what happens next. Until this issue is resolved, I'm keeping my full face helmet on if I'm stopped on either of my motorbikes.
Ride as often as you can.
Main bike 2013 20th Anniversary EVO (192). Other bike 2001 Triumph Bonnie.
