California Motorcycle Helmet Laws

I’m Ed Smith, a Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Sacramento. California is one of just 19 states to require all motorcycle riders to wear helmets. While helmets that are in accordance with federal safety standards have shown to successfully prevent fatal injuries to motorcycle riders, the number of states mandating their use has somehow gone down instead of going up.

This is because many Americans do not want to be micromanaged. The nanny state is not really a favorite for so many.
