In 2016 Texas had 500 motorcyclists, both drivers and passengers, killed. Fifty three percent of those fatalities were not wearing helmets at the time of the accident, according to data from the Texas Peace Officer’s Crash Reports. Helmets are only required for those riders under 21 and without an approved health insurance plan. A peace officer may not pull over a motorcyclist, not wearing a helmet, for the soul purpose of determining if they are over 21 and have appropriate insurance, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Motorcycle riding may have several different appeals to cycle enthusiasts. It is generally less expensive to fill up a motorcycle with gas, than it is to fill up a car. Others enjoy riding out in the open and the sense of freedom that brings. Also, parking may be much easier to find when arriving at your destination and potentially put you closer to an entrance. However, with those benefits, there is also increased risk. Motorcycles offer less protection than cars and other drivers don’t always look out for motorcyclist as they are smaller than an average car. This can leave motorcycle drivers more vulnerable than other forms of transportation.
