Texas Helmet Law Question

3346 Views 90 Replies 43 Participants Last post by  shuckaduck
OK. I'm from Louisiana I meet the Texas requirements to ride without a helmet for age and insurance, but is it legal for me to ride without a helmet.

Someone said I need to have a "no helmet" sticker???

I am at College Station for the week and I rode in. One of my co-works showed up and the local car rental place is "out of cars." I am wondering if we can ride around legally without helmets... or will I get a ticket if he isn't wearing one?

Thanks... Ken

Still blows my mind that, 7 years ago, I got a $200 ticket for not wearing my seatbelt in Texas(forgot to put it on once), but it was ok if I went without a helmet there(only tried that once and felt major unsafe).

The irony is that it's a lot easier to forget to wear a seatbelt than it is to forget to put on your helmet, and I'd guess that a non-belted driver is less likely to die or suffer brain damage than a helmeted rider...
