Choosing a motorcycle helmet

Posted By Blog Manager || 12-Jan-2012

While motorcycling is an inherently dangerous activity, and it is likely that most personal injury attorneys would advise against riding on a motorcycle, if you are insistent on biking, please pick out a safe helmet. Get one that is both Snell certified as well as DOT certified.

You may also wish to consider a full face helmet instead of a half helmet or 3/4 helmet. According to the 1981 Hurt Report found that as many as 31% of all impacts occur below the DOT test zone.

Be sure to check for recalls and possible product defects on any helmet you consider. And never buy a used helmet. If a helmet has been dropped or "gone down" it ceases being effective and a new helmet is required.
