The state of Texas, along with all other states, has its own set of laws and requirements governing motorcycle operators. If you operate a motorcycle in Texas, it is imperative that you know the laws of the land. This will prove beneficial should you become involved in an accident.
In Texas, the requirement to wear a helmet applies to all drivers and riders of motorcycles under the age of twenty one. The helmet worn should comply with all standards set forth by Texas’ Commissioner of Safety. The exception to this statute is for those riding in an enclosed cab or a three wheeled motorcycle that is fully enclosed. There is no restriction placed on the wearing of speaker helmets, but, to be safe you should only wear one. Before you ride in Texas, be sure to check with the Commissioner of Safety to make sure that your helmet meets minimum requirements.
