- They can improve your ability to see – Whether it is raining or snowing, a motorcycle helmet can help improve your ability to see other vehicles on the road. Not to mention, potential hazards. Also, a tinted visor helps keep the sun out of your eyes.
- Follow the law – Not all states have the same laws regarding motorcycle helmets. For example, in Arizona, you must wear a helmet if you are 17 or younger. However, in a state like Alabama, all riders are required to wear one. It is best to know in advance, so look at your local laws regarding motorcycle helmets.
3 More Tips:
- Avoid large medical bills – The risk of having a huge medical bill is extremely high if you were not wearing a helmet during an accident. Not only the initial medical bills, but long-term bills could affect you later if you suffered a long-term injury.
- They are stylish – Helmets come in all shapes and sizes. Do not be afraid to “let your freak flag fly” when it comes to riding. Be proud of who you are and show it off with the right helmet!
- You have less of a chance to be found “Partially at fault” in an insurance claim – Commonly, cars are found to be at fault in an accident.
