Helmets

Be Aware! Some motorcycle helmets don't meet the current Department of Transportation (DOT) safety standards. These helmets are often called "novelty" or "fake helmets" and are usually sold at motorcycle retail shops, motorcycle swap meets, the Internet, and various other motorcycle-related businesses. These helmets do not provide the necessary degree of protection required by the DOT standard. The Department of Defense requires all motorcycle and moped riders to wear a certified DOT helmet which must be properly fastened under the chin.
