DOT approved helmet
  • Helps prevent serious head injury.
  • Should fit snugly and fasten securely.
  • May be a full-face helmet or an open-face helmet.
    • Full-face helmets protect both your head and face. They provide the best protection during a collision, protect from tree branches and falls, provide warmth, and protect from loud noises.
    • Open-face helmets are lighter and cooler but should be worn with eye protection.
  • Can increase your visibility after dark if you add a strip of reflective tape to your helmet.
  • Should have a safety-approved label from the Department of Transportation (DOT), the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), or the Snell Memorial Foundation.
