Riders should understand the risk of riding without a helmet. There are enough and more awareness campaigns that talk about the hazards of riding without a helmet. Wearing a helmet can save your life during an accident. It is an important protective gear that guards your head from a serious head injury during a crash.
Another important factor that several riders who wear helmets neglect to do is to fasten their chin strap. If the chin strap is not fastened properly, the helmet will not sit firmly on your head and during an unfortunate situation, the helmet might get displaced from your head causing serious damage.
Pillion rider also needs to wear a helmet
It is a common misconception that the pillion rider doesn’t need to wear a helmet. Many road safety surveys have shown that a majority of motorcycle accidents were caused when the motorcycle was either hit from behind or from the side- where the pillion rider sits.
