Three more people have been critically injured in motorcycle crashes on our Connecticut roads and highways over recent days. These crashes follow a fatal crash earlier in the month where two riders died in a crash in Rocky Hill. These latest crashes have an escalated an ongoing debate as to whether Connecticut should require helmets when riding motorcycles. The Connecticut Motorcycle Riders Association continues to advocate that helmet wearing should remain optional.
We previously blogged about the helmet law in Connecticut along with helmet laws across the country. While it is understandable that many invididuals want to be free to choose whether or not to wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle, the choice that should be made in every instance is to wear it.
