Enclosed motorcycle Elio helmet exemption in Louisiana
Classified as an enclosed motorcycle, Elio has made further progress in helmet exemption legislation with Louisiana declaring helmet exemption for the Elio. House Bill 218 was approved in Louisiana, where Elio will be manufactured in late June. New York too has announced helmet exemption for the vehicle.
Elio Motors’ Vice President of Government Affairs, Joel Sheltrown says, “We are actively working with the five helmet states’ legislators to work through any issues they may have. Given our success in the other 45 states, we are optimistic about solving any issues we may face.” Sheltrown adds that Missouri, a helmet-state, has already identified bill sponsors and drafted legislation to exempt the Elio from their helmet laws.
