In this video, attorney Ted Spaulding answers whether or not a helmet is required when driving a motorcycle in Georgia.
Are motorcycle helmets required in the State of Georgia? Keep watching this video to learn the answer to this all-important question. Hi, I’m Ted Spaulding. I’m an Atlanta personal injury trial lawyer. And I’m the founder here at Spaulding Injury Law. So this is an easy one. Yes, Georgia law requires you to wear a helmet. If you’re a passenger on a motorcycle, you’re required to wear a helmet. But it goes beyond that. Georgia law says you must follow federal law. So, we are talking federal motorcycle helmet law, which is DOT-compliant helmets. So, it is not enough just to be wearing a helmet, you must wear a DOT-compliant helmet. So, you need to make sure you’re wearing one. Be mindful of those novelty ones out there that have the little DOT sticker that are not DOT-compliant helmets. That will come out if you’re in a wreck and it’s not the proper helmet. So, yes it is Georgia law that you wear a DOT-compliant helmet at all times when you’re driving a motorcycle, or you’re riding a motorcycle. So, wear a DOT-compliant helmet, be in compliance with Georgia law.
