Exclamation 43% of DOT approved motorcycle helmets fail tests

Personally I trust SNELL rated helmets.

But the failure rate for DOT approved helmets is beyond shocking.


Itís actually a 43.1% failure rate. And the DOT actually tests helmets after they are commercially produced and sold so the helmets are already on peopleís heads. Other testing systems, like SNELL, donít issue labels until after the helmet passes their tests.

"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion:
the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases,
while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage
of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."
- Ayn Rand
