To ensure safety on the roads for motorcyclists and drivers, a new bill signed Wednesday increases the penalty for those riding motorcycles without proper endorsement.
Gov. Rick Snyder signed House Bill 4651, sponsored by the late Rep. Julie Plawecki, which increases the penalty for operating a motorcycle without proper endorsement on the operator's license from $100 to $500.
“This bill stiffens the penalty for operating a motorcycle without the proper endorsement, helping to ensure both motorists and motorcyclists stay safer on Michigan’s roads,” Snyder said.
This is the first Public Act to bear the name of Rep. Plawecki, who passed away in June. The measure is now Public Act 318 of 2016.
