Is it time for South Carolina to enact a helmet law for motorcyclists?
A S.C. Department of Public Safety spokeswoman sent a message to media outlets Thursday following the death of a Lowcountry motorcyclist, urging attention to "noticeable numbers" in motorcycle deaths.
All four motorcycle deaths this month have occurred in the Lowcountry and none were wearing helmets. .
The state has a seatbelt law, and also asks pedestrians to wear visible clothing when walking at night. Late last year, charges were threatened against a man, attired in dark clothing and riding a dark-colored horse, due to a horse v. car wreck in Summerville. However, every time a helmet law is brought up at the state level, it has failed to become law.
