Michigan To Require Drivers To Be Educated On Motorcycle Awareness

awareness education mandatory motorcycle nathan bower act safety course

SANILAC COUNTY, MI  Nathan's Law, now referred to as the Nathan Bower Act, passed in the Senate and in the House -- going back with some amendments -- on Thursday, Oct. 2. The law, which requires that driver education courses in Michigan include lessons on bicycle and motorcycle awareness and safety, is now heading to the governor's office.  "The next step is that it's going to be signed. We are excited. We are relieved," said Lisa Cook-Gordon, who knew the Bower family and suggested the bill. "Now,  people can start working to develop the curriculum so that young drivers can learn more about motorcycle and bicycle education and awareness. "This is the first step to saving more lives." The law was proposed in memory of Nathan Bower, who died on May 6, 2009, at age 19 after he was struck by a vehicle while riding his motorcycle in Brown City only a few miles from his Peck home.    Read More at MLive
