Wow! There are a lot of self righteous people responding. Unfortunately, the non DOT helmets will get you a ticket, and a sticker will not help. If you go to court they will point out that there is no protection and it is obvious that the helmet is not DOT approved. It's sad, but the law passed because people were thinking they should decide for everyone else. People who wear novelty helmets are the people who don't want to wear them at all. That is their choice. I live in Texas where free choice is still cared about, and the only reason I wear a helmet is when it is too cold not to. If my head wasn't shaved, the only reason I would wear a helmet is to keep my hair from snarling, and it sure wouldn't be a DOT approved bulky helmet that are uncomfortable. You don't like that, too bad, go die! To those who criticize, I'll take care of myself, you worry about you. As far as the justification for the law being medical expenses, nothing in the state has changed. Case and point: my friend is now paralyzed for the rest of his life because he WAS wearing his helmet. Otherwise he would be dead. That cost him his wife, his son, his job, and now he spends all his life in pain and need. You think that's better, I would love to meet you in person. If you are that concerned with safety, go get a Volvo and shut up.
