New Hampshire Bikers Flock to D.C. To Protest Helmet Law

Many New Hampshire residents are outraged at a bill that would require all motorcycle riders to wear helmets. Currently, New Hampshire is one of three states that does not require helmets for motorcyclists. At the end of January 2010, more than 250 people, most of which were in protest of the bill, attended a meeting in the Representatives Hall.

Bill sponsors plead that the new legislation would lead to fewer head injuries and would save the state significant medical care costs. Still, many motorcyclists believe that the bill is an attempt to control their behavior and infringes upon their rights. However, the state could lose federal highway dollars if the helmet law is not adopted.

With or without a helmet, NH motorcyclists face serious dangers on the road. Motorcycle accident injuries range from minor cuts and lacerations to severe brain injury and paralysis. Riding a motorcycle will always present a greater risk than driving a car.

Although wearing a helmet greatly reduces the risk of injury, it still may not always protect against traumatic brain injuries. If you, or someone you love, has been involved in a motorcycle accident in New Hampshire, you should speak with a skilled NH motorcycle accident injury attorney.
