Words cannot express the sadness we feel so I can only imagine what Mr. and Mrs. Lilienthal are feeling right now.”
Helmets are important when riding a motorcycle. They decrease the odds of dying in an accident. Unfortunately, this was not the case here.
What Are Some Reasons to Wear a Helmet
There are people who think that wearing a helmet is “nerdy” or “uncomfortable”. However, if you want to protect your head caused by injuries due to falling, then wearing a motorcycle helmet is essential.
- Protect your brain – Head injuries are one of the main causes of death. Traumatic brain injuries can happen when motorcyclists do not wear a helmet. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated that motorcycles made up 14% of all traffic deaths in 2017 alone.
- 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.
- Set good examples for children – If you are a parent, your child’s safety should always come first. By setting rules in place early on, it could possibly save their lives later.
- Keeps your head insulated – If you have ridden your motorcycle in the rain, then you know it can be very irritating without a helmet. It is important that you are dry and comfortable when operating a motorbike.
- 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 can affect you later on 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. If you are not wearing a helmet, then the driver of the car can pass partial responsibility on you. As a result, they do not have to pay as much. It is easy to stop this before it happens. Simply, by wearing a helmet.
