The Sikh Legends of America wait on motorcycles to start the Sacramento Sikh Society's first Nagar Kirtan parade at the Sacramento Sikh Society Temple in Vineyard, California.  

FRESNO, Calif. — Turban-wearing Sikh motorcyclists would be free to ride helmet-free in California if Assembly Bill 2392, proposed by Fresno Assembly member Esmeralda Soria, becomes law this year.

California’s helmet law for motorcyclists was passed in the 1990s as a public safety move, but for former Fresno City Councilmember Soria the measure violates the right to religious freedom for Sikhs.
