Shocking Visual Reminders to Always Wear a Helmet

Shocking Visual Reminders to Always Wear a Helmet

Motorcycles are pretty much an iconic symbol that screams "cool." Yet they are not without their dangers. Less than half of the states in the USA have mandatory helmet laws and the CDC has released proof that helmets and helmet laws significantly reduce motorcyclist deaths. And even then, motorcycles are not the only time we wear helmets. There is a wide variety of professions and sports that require it or at the very least, it significantly enhances your safety and could easily save your life to wear one. It's not really a debate that helmets save lives, it's just convincing people that their lives are worth it. 

Because really, some people still don't quite get it. Whether it's an "I'm too cool for the helmet" mentality or just general laziness, we're not entirely sure, but if you've been on the fence or thinking that motorcycles are better experienced without the helmet, or your preferred sport, then these are a set of photos you literally need to see. They very well could save your life because the shocking image of the impact a helmet takes on to protect you is a heavy weight to realize.
