Helmets save lives, I know it goes without saying, but wearing a helmet can easily determine whether you live or die.
According to Crash Stats, “National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA) of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has estimated helmets to be about 37 percent effective in preventing fatalities.”
While it might not look “cool” to wear a helmet, I’d rather be safe than stupid. I mean seriously… they have some really awesome looking motorcycle helmets.
And wearing one is not only a good idea for motorcycles, but other things like construction, biking, etc…
From Roxanne on eatsleepride, “My face and head took the greatest impact with the tree. I took a direct hit in the face which lead the doctor to proclaim that I was lucky to be wearing a full-face helmet. It didn’t crack, the visor didn’t break. My cheek bones weren’t crushed or bruised, my spine was fine, my neck was only slightly sprained, my teeth were intact!”
