How often do you see motorcyclists riding without a helmet on our Kansas City roads? Knowing the potential hazards of riding a motorcycle, some might assume that wearing a motorcycle helmet is mandated by law. But it is not, not in every state. Do you know what the Missouri motorcycle helmet law is? Are motorcyclists required to wear a helmet?
The answer is no, not everyone is required to wear a helmet in the state of Missouri.
Accidents happen. Sometimes the fault lies with the motorcyclist; but more often, a motorcycle accident is caused by the negligence of another driver. Should you retain a personal injury lawyer? What do you need to know when you have been involved in a motorcycle accident?
Riding a motorcycle is fun and we want to help it stay that way for you with these motorcycle road safety tips.
Did you know that Missouri has eased its motorcycle helmet law?
The new helmet law, which took effect on August 28, 2020, now only requires those under the age of 26, or older than 26 if driving with a permit, to wear a helmet when riding in or driving a motorcycle.
There is nothing like cruising on a motorcycle. It is exhilarating. It gets your blood pumping, gives you a sense of freedom and takes away tension and stress.
But that fun road trip can quickly turn dangerous.
Summer and early fall are some of the best times of the year to rev up your motorcycle and hit the open road. But with those great riding temperatures, comes an increase in road congestion and a greater number of accidents for both four and two-wheeled vehicles.
Ready to hit the Kansas City roads on two wheels? Whether you are a new rider, a seasoned one or a “re-entry” rider, we want to help you enjoy time on your motorcycle.
One of the best pieces of advice we can give you is to always wear your helmet (you and your passenger) as you hit the roadways. Why? A helmet is the best protection for your head should an accident occur.
Warmer weather is always a draw for those who love to ride motorcycles. And, of course, driving a car and driving a motorcycle requires different skills and knowledge. As a driver, what do you need to know about sharing the road with motorcyclists?
