Improving Lives Through Bicycling. Cascade Bicycle Club, the nation’s largest statewide bicycle organization, is powered by 15,000 members and serves bike riders of all ages and abilities throughout the Puget Sound region and across Washington state.
A bicycle helmet is designed to attenuate impacts to the head of a cyclist in falls while minimizing side effects such as interference with peripheral vision. There is ongoing scientific research into the degree of protection offered by bicycle helmets in the event of an accident, and the effects of helmet wearing on cyclist and motor vehicle driver behaviour.
Some countries and lower jurisdictions have enacted laws or regulations which require cyclists to wear a helmet in certain circumstances, typically when riding on the road or a road-related area (such as a bicycle lane or path). In some places this requirement applies only to children under a certain age, while in others it applies to cyclists of all ages.
Summary: There is no federal law in the U.S. requiring bicycle helmets. The states and localities below began adopting laws in 1987.
