Am I Required to Wear a Bicycle Helmet?

The Georgia bicycle helmet law only applies to riders under the age of 16. Older bicyclists do not have to wear helmets when riding. However, helmets are recommended if you are riding next to moving vehicles. Helmets are the most effective way to prevent head and facial injuries. They are known to help save lives and lessen the severity of injuries. Although helmets cannot prevent all injuries, they are effective in the majority of bicycle accidents in Atlanta and throughout the U.S. If you have been injured in an Atlanta bicycle accident, then call Kalka & Baer LLC today.
