This year, there's another push to do away with the current motorcycle helmet law.

The proposal would require that only riders under the age of 21 wear a helmet. Currently, all riders in louisiana are required by law to wear a helmet.

Many local bikers believe wearing a helmet should be a matter of personal choice.

State police said a helmet greatly reduces the chance of serious injury in a crash.
