Governor Granholm has vetoed a bill that would have allowed adult motorcyclists to ride without helmets.

The mandatory helmet law, which dates back to the 1960s, remains in place.

The group, American Bikers Aiming Toward Education of Michigan, had managed to get both the House and Senate to pass the bill.

But insurance groups and health agencies lobbied against it, and Granholm sided with them.

The bill would have allowed riders 21 and older decide whether to wear a helmet if they met certain conditions.
