DOT Helmet, Ladies pink half helmet, U.S. Department Of Transport approved. Nice light helmet.
We are often asked if these helmets are road legal, so we have bought a copy of "Janes Police Review" "THE TRAFFIC OFFICERS COMPANION" 15th edition (the latest revision) "Intelligence & insight you can trust" it says on the front cover!
On page 331 we come to the section on motorcycle crash helmets, as follows
Every person driving or riding on a motor bicycle ( otherwise than a passenger in a side car ) on a road.
Must use protective headgear.
Must be securely fastened to the head of the wearer by means of straps or other fastening provided for that purpose.
Must bear a mark indication compliance with the British Standard OR be of a type which by virtue of its shape, material & construction could reasonably be expected to afford protection similar to or greater than, a helmet which conforms to the British Standard, an accepted EEA Standard or of ECE regulations.
END OF QUOTE
WE MUST EMPHASISE HOWEVER THAT WE DO NOT SELL THESE HELMETS AS PROTECTIVE HEADGEAR AS THEY DO NOT CARRY THE RECOGNISED ECE SAFETY MARK
Your DOT Helmet will be sent by 1st Class Recorded delivery (please check for Postal Cost status on this item)...we've found that this greatly reduces the chance of the Post Office losing your biker clothing, gift or accessory and helps if you need to claim for anything they do manage to misplace. We also take care and post most biker stuff in padded envelopes or packed boxes ( biker patches & biker pins in plain envelopes ) to further ensure your item reaches you in the same condition it leaves us.
