Do You Have to Wear a Motorcycle Helmet in Florida?

The motorcycle helmet laws in Florida can be confusing. If you are under the age of 21, you have to wear a USDOT compliant helmet while riding a motorcycle as either the driver or passenger. However, if you are 21 or older, you also have to wear a helmet unless you have at least $10,000 in medical insurance benefits for motorcycle related injuries. If you are legally required to be wearing a helmet while riding and are caught, you will likely receive a fine.

Motorcycle Accident Statistics

In 2006 alone, the number of motorcyclist deaths was almost 30 times more than the number of drivers in other vehicles? Motorcycle deaths account for around 5% of all highway fatalities and one of the prominent reasons behind this is that motorcycles by nature don't have nearly enough protection in the event of a crash.

There is not much standing between you and the asphalt, in fact it is estimated that 80% of all motorcycle accidents will result in injury or even death whereas it is only 20% for automobiles. Many drivers forget to consider the cyclists on the road and make risky and dangerous maneuvers that put them in danger. If a motorcycle is closely cut off or hit by a negligent driver switching lanes, injury is almost inevitable.

According to a report issued by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there were 2,357 people killed in motorcycle accidents in Florida, with 84 in Brevard County alone in the five year period from 2005-2009. Whereas motorcyclists account for only 4.2% of all motor vehicle accident injuries in our state, they account for 15.7% of all fatalities-nearly four times as many. Two-fifths of all fatal motorcycle accidents occur on two-lane highways, while another 31% take place on four-lane roads.
