Riding on the motorcycle is a risky business, so it makes sense that helmet use is also considered risky.
The federal government estimates that helmet-wearing cyclists are at risk of head injuries at least 10 times higher than motorists.
And that number is rising.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that in 2013, nearly 17,000 people in the U.S. died in motorcycle crashes.
The number of fatalities from motorcycle-related crashes has been increasing since the recession ended in 2007, and that’s despite the fact that many riders don’t wear helmets.
While some studies have found that helmet wearing reduces crash rates, others haven’t found that it significantly reduces fatalities.
Why are there helmet laws?
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, helmet laws have the opposite effect on drivers than they do on riders.
In a study published in January of this year, researchers at the University of Michigan concluded that “a helmet law reduces traffic fatalities, and a helmet-attracting driver tends to ride with a more aggressive motorist.”
Is it better to wear a helmet than not?
There’s some evidence that riding a motorcycle without a helmet can be a safer and more enjoyable experience than wearing one.
But if you don’t want to ride a motorcycle, you should be wearing one, says Brian Schulte, founder of The Bike Company and the author of The Helmet: The Science Behind Riding Safety.
“It’s a lot easier to be in control of the bike if you’re wearing a helmet.
You can wear a bike helmet and still go fast,” he says.”
You don’t have to worry about hitting someone, you don,t have to stop for a red light.”
There’s no safety risk when you’re not wearing a head shield.
If you can get behind the wheel and you’re riding safely, you can do whatever you want.
“When should I wear a motorcycle helmet?
Helmets can help you get to the other side of a road safely.
The best time to wear one is before you enter the roadway.
The sooner you get out of the way of other vehicles and can see a cyclist, the safer you’ll be.
Helmets must be at least 4 feet (1.8 meters) above the ground, and must be fastened securely with a fastening system that’s not designed to come off.”
They are designed to protect the head, and not your face, so you’re more aware of what’s going on.” “
They make it so you can go a little further when you need to.”

How to get a motorcycle-only helmet?
If you’re looking to buy a motorcycle only helmet, you’ll need to apply for a helmet exemption.
It’s possible to get one online, but it can take up to two weeks.
If it’s not approved, it will take at least six months to get approved, which means it may take another year for you to get your helmet.
How much does it cost?
A helmet is only $200, but helmets are sold for a lot more, so the price varies depending on where you live.
If a helmet costs $200 in a specific state, it might be much cheaper elsewhere.
Do I need a motorcycle license?
The motorcycle helmet exemption applies to most states.
If your state doesn’t have one, you might want to apply online or by mail, says Kristin Burchardt, who works at BikeCoast.com.
You need to get an exemption through a state-based license or through a city-based one.
You’ll also need to provide proof of insurance, and you can’t get an insurance card unless you buy a helmet license.
What if I don’t fit the requirements?
If your helmet doesn’t meet all the criteria for a motorcycle exemption, you’re still eligible to ride without one.
If the helmet does meet all of the criteria, you must apply for it, and if you do, it’ll take at most two weeks for your application to be approved.
The exemption doesn’t apply to the driver in front of you.
Can I get an exception if I wear my motorcycle helmet while driving?
No, you cannot.
But you may want to consider whether wearing a motorcycle hat is necessary for safety.
According to a 2013 study by researchers at Northeastern University, wearing a hat can reduce head injuries by up to 90 percent, so if you plan on riding on the highway, you probably want to wear your helmet, Schulter says.
Will I need to wear my helmet again after I leave the road?
Most states require drivers to wear helmets at all times.
But in some places, you may need to take off your helmet for a certain amount of time after you leave the roadway, such as if you are riding at night.
Some states even require you to wear the
