Motorcycle Helmet Laws in California
Motorcyclists in California are required to wear a motorcycle helmet whenever the vehicle is in operation. A motorcycle is essentially in operation if the rider is on it and the engine is running. The motorcycle does not need to be in motion or traffic to be considered in operation.
Not wearing a motorcycle helmet can get you a citation, and it can also put you in extreme danger if a motorcycle accident occurs. You will be more likely to suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). You will also be more likely to assume more liability for your damages, which weakens your injury claim.
Motorcycle Accident Causes in San Bernardino
Driver negligence is often at the root of serious motorcycle accidents. It is not fair to always put the blame on the motorcyclist, which is what many insurance companies try to do by default. Drivers are more likely to cause a motorcycle accident if they do not check mirrors and blind spots when changing lanes, tailgate a motorcyclist, try to race a motorcyclist, or not let a motorcyclist lane-split, which is legal in California.
