Do not use a brain bucket. Get a DOT helmet if you ride a motorcycle!


Last week a may in Iron County died when his motorcycle struck a deer in the road just after sunset.  The deceased rider was riding a novelty helmet, sometimes referred to as a brain bucket, when the collision occurred.

I have seen several enhanced head injuries when riders fail to use a DOT approved helmet.  One never intends to get into an accident while riding.  A deer in the road is unpredictable but the consequences were not.

It is better to be safe than sorry when you ride.  For your family's sake, if you ride, get a decent helmet; one that's approved by the Department of Transportation.
