According to statistics, helmets reduce the risk of head injuries by 69 percent and ultimately reduce death risks by 39 percent. Moreover, some states have gone an extra mile to instigate a universal helmet law to protect their riders. Otherwise, one would be eligible for a penalty. However, your main reason to wear a helmet should not be not to get a fine. A helmet should never miss your motorcycle imports list.
