Oklahoma is set to become the 19th state to require the use of a helmet in public vehicles and in schools.
The bill is expected to become law in early 2021, though details of the bill have not yet been made public.
The new law will affect all state-owned vehicles and buses, as well as any vehicles transporting people, and will require drivers to wear a helmet.
Oklahoma currently has a helmet law that prohibits drivers from wearing a face shield, a chin shield, or a chin-strap helmet while driving a vehicle.
In 2018, the state passed a helmet bill, but it took more than two years for the Legislature to pass the bill, and the law has not been implemented since.
Oklahoma’s first statewide driver education campaign was launched in 2017, and more than 200,000 people signed up to participate.
Currently, the new law requires drivers to read, write, and speak clearly when communicating with the public.
Some parents and students have expressed concerns about the new requirement, as many say it is a burden on the children who might not be ready for school yet.
A recent poll conducted by the Oklahoma State Public Radio found that 75 percent of drivers in the state support the helmet law.
A separate poll conducted last year by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) found that a majority of drivers support a helmet requirement for school transportation, as opposed to a ban.
Oklahoma lawmakers have previously discussed banning the use or display of face shields in public places, as the state did with its ban on the use and display of a car license plate.
The state has a new statewide traffic safety task force that is charged with improving public safety in the United States.
It also recently enacted a new law that mandates the use to which all vehicles must be assigned when transporting children under 14 years of age.
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation said in a statement that the law will help reduce fatalities and injuries in the State, while protecting the rights of all drivers.
“In this new era, our goal is to make all traffic systems safe and effective for all,” the department said in the statement.
Oklahoma also recently adopted a new rule requiring motorists to use two-wheel drive, but not on public highways.
Oklahoma will become the 20th state in the country to require that all vehicles in the general public be equipped with a helmet, and all vehicles on public roads be equipped.
This is the first state in Oklahoma to require drivers wearing a helmet be visible from the rear, as is required by the federal law.
The law also requires all children under the age of 14 years to wear the required helmet.
The helmet law will become effective in 2021, and it will take effect on January 1, 2021, when school begins.
