Georgia’s Motorcycle Helmet Law is Strict, But Saves Lives
GEORGIA - Georgia has one of the strictest motorcycle helmet laws in the country. While some states have no helmet law many states tend to have laws that only apply to younger motorcyclists. Any rider or passenger legally must wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle in Georgia.*
The risk of death drops by 37 percent when a motorcyclist uses an appropriate helmet according to recent studies. The risk of severe brain injuries drops even more with a decline of 67 percent with helmet use.
Drunk riders and inexperienced motorcyclists are other risk-factors that frequently lead to fatal motorcycle crashes.
Despite the protective laws, Georgia still has more fatal motorcycle crashes than other states. Georgia ranks eighteenth out of all fifty states for highest rate of motorcyclist fatalities and Alabama ranks fifteenth. The southeast may have more motorcycle crashes party due to the fact that the southeast has a longer season for riding.
