Lawmakers seek reduced ticket for helmet wearers

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – A Utah House committee has unanimously approved a bill that would have Utah courts slice $8 off of traffic tickets for off-highway vehicle riders if they were wearing a helmet.

The bill approved by the panel on Friday now advances to the full House for consideration.

Motorcycles, motor-driven cycles, electric bicycles and scooters would all count under the proposal.

To benefit from the waiver the rider would have to be at least 18.
