Motorcycle helmets have been proven to save lives. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), “helmets are about 37 percent effective in preventing fatal injuries to motorcycle riders.”
Despite this evidence, many motorcyclists choose not to wear helmets. One reason may be that they do not understand the risks of not wearing a helmet. This blog post will discuss the dangers of riding without a helmet and why it is important to wear one. It will also provide tips on choosing the right helmet and how to fit it properly. Finally, the benefits of wearing a motorcycle helmet will be outlined.
Always Wear a Helmet
Whether you are a new motorcyclist or have been riding for years, it is crucial always to wear a helmet. It provides protection against head injuries in the event of an accident and can also help reduce your risk of other serious injuries, such as road rash.
When choosing a motorcycle helmet, there are several factors that you should take into consideration. First, consider the fit – your helmet should sit securely and comfortably on your head without being too loose or tight. Also, choose a helmet that offers adequate protection based on your riding style and level of experience. For example, if you ride aggressively on off-road terrain, you will need a different type of helmet than someone who rides on the highway.
