According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 4,500 motorcyclists are killed every year in traffic accidents across the United States. The very freedom and sense of fun that many motorcyclists value, also make riders more likely to be injured in the event of a crash. With very little of the inherent protections of a car or truck, and no equivalent to seat belts or air bags, many motorcyclists are very seriously injured when involved in accidents. While research indicates that helmets can make a significant impact in saving lives, Colorado is one of 28 states in which adults are not legally required to wear helmets while riding.
