Dear :Mr. Convy

Thank you for taking the time to contact me regarding the legislation to eliminate the requirement that a motorcyclist buy custom-made earplugs if they want to use earplugs when they ride.

That change was contained in SB 315, the Senate Transportation Committee omnibus bill, and it was signed into law by the Governor on September 29, 2003. When the bill takes effect on January 1, 2004, motorcyclists will be able to wear any earplugs or molds - not just those that are custom-made - that are specifically designed to reduce noise levels, as long as they don't inhibit the rider's ability to hear a siren or a horn from another vehicle.

I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to drop me a thank you note. You're most certainly welcome, I'm glad I could help, and happy riding!

Sincerely,

Debra Bowen

Senator, 28th District

I would think that if a deaf person has just as much of a right to drive as a person who can hear, then a person can wear earplugs that cuts out all noise and drive like a deaf person.

If deaf people can drive, what difference does it make what kind of ****ing earplug you choose to wear?
