Texas Helmet Laws

Dallas Personal Injury Attorneys

Texas recognizes a partial helmet law, which means that it is not universally required that all motorcyclists and bicyclists wear a helmet. In Texas, however, the law does require that all individuals under the age of 20 wear a helmet and abide by this law at all times; this is strictly enforced. It is recommended of course that all individuals wear helmets while they participate in recreational and commuter activities on bicycles and motorcycles. Wearing a helmet may reduce the risk of death by almost 40% and can significantly reduce the risk of serious head injury by 69%.

It is important to remember, that if you are found in violation of the Texas helmet safety law, you may be fined up to $500 and receive a citation. To ensure the utmost safety, as stated before, every individual participating in bicycle activities should wear a helmet, regardless of age. Before riding, it is important that the helmet be tested for durability and the straps be properly secured under the chin and pulled snug so the helmet does not slide forward or back. As children grow, helmets should be adjusted and replaced to ensure that the proper helmet is being worn.
