The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that motorcycle
helmets saved 1,829 motorcyclists’ lives in 2008, and that 823 more
could have been saved if all motorcyclists had worn helmets.Motorcycle accidents can be fatal, especially if you aren’t wearing a helmet, or didn’t
choose a helmet that fits you properly. Here are three tips on how to
correctly choose a motorcycle helmet:
Pick the right size: When choosing a motorcycle helmet, try on a few sizes
to find one that fits. When trying one on, the entire interior liner should
come in contact with your head. Try shaking your head back and forth to
make sure the helmet doesn’t move around. If you can remove the
helmet easily, it’s most likely too big. If your nose or chin touches
the face-shield, it’s too small. Make sure that your helmet is snug,
but not uncomfortable.
Choose one based on the riding you do: There are many great helmets, but
it’s important to choose one that matches your motorcycle needs.
If you are doing long rides, you should pick a helmet with advanced features
that help you enjoy wearing it for long periods of time. If you are doing
short rides, you can go without some of the extra bells and whistles.
The most important thing to remember is always wear your helmet when riding
your motorcycle, to avoid serious, life-threatening
motorcycle accidents. Even if you are careful when riding your motorcycle, others might not
be. If you or a loved one were the victim of a Texas motorcycle accident,
you deserve justice and compensation.
