Abstract/Description

Motorcycle helmet safety. Here in KY there is no helmet law in place at this time. It is completely up to each individual to decide if they choose to wear a helmet or not. Yes the helmets look simple and like they don't look like they could do much for your protection or make much of a difference, but according to the CDC helmets saved over 1,630 lives and over $2.8 billion in economic costs in 2013. Helmets reduce risk of death by 37% and risk of head injury by 69% also mentioned by the CDC.

So by wearing a helmet you are at a much greater rate of not having a head injury or risk of death if in an accident. TN & MO both have helmet laws in place currently.
