Statistics show increase in motorcycle fatalities since Florida's passage of "no helmet" law
Florida's repeal of the helmet law in 2000 has resulted in an increase of the number of fatalities due to head injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents. There has also been a significant increase in the number of closed head injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents without the use of protective head gear. At Johnson & Gilbert, we do not advocate whether one should ride with a helmet or not. As adults of the age 21 and over, Florida law gives you the right to make that decision. However, it is important to know the increased risk involved with riding without a helmet.
