Bike Helmet Laws by State


via Insurance Institute of Highway Safety

Tom Vanderbilt, author of Traffic, pointed out in his blog this map of bicycle helmet laws from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. I thought it was interesting because I didn't know that most states have no helmet law whatsoever. You have to wonder how the states came up with the different ages - from 11 in Pennsylvania to 17 in New Mexico and California. Is it based on crash incidence and severity, or, more likely, just a committee of legislators playing pick a number?
