novelty motorcycle helmets | Orlando Accident & Injury Blog
Motorcycle accident attorneys in Florida are reminding readers to base their purchasing decisions on protective headgear on safety standards, instead of on a helmet’s look. A recent report revealed that around 800,000 novelty motorcycle helmets are sold in the U.S. each year. This headgear typically features stylish colors and designs but does not offer the levels of protection provided by headgear approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which sets safety standards for helmets. There have been several attempts in recent years to limit sales of novelty motorcycle helmets, but decisive action on the issue has been repeatedly delayed.
