Road safety- Should Motor bikers wear helmets?

Many people in the world involved in motorcycle collisions suffer severe injuries to include head injuries, sadly leading to disability or death.

Such accidents and injuries may be as a result of a lack of appropriate protective clothing or biker/ other driver error.

People who are on low or average incomes may purchase a motorcycle because it is a lot cheaper to run than a 4-wheeled motor vehicle, or simply because they enjoy riding bikes, leaving them vulnerable to accidents because sometimes they just are not seen by other drivers, who can pull out from side roads or change lanes without taking due care and attention. Cases show that some drivers overtake bikers whilst in motion on the road and failure to signal their intention can cause serious injuries.

There is much controversy on the merits of wearing a helmet and the freedom of choice to do so. However, by law Bikers in the UK must wear one and it should comply with British Standard BS 6658:1985 and carry the BSI Kite mark.

If your helmet receives any severe impact, a new one should be purchased.
