CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A bill has been introduced in the West Virginia Senate to let people 21 years or older to drive or ride a motorcycle without a helmet under specified conditions.

Senate Bill 549 was introduced into the Senate earlier this month.

The proposed legislation says a person at least 21 years old is not required to wear a helmet if the person has had a motorcycle license for at least two years or the person passes a motorcycle education program and has health insurance.

SB 549 also says people can't ride side saddle on a motorcycle seat.

The bill was sent to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and then to the Judiciary Committee.
