Openly for sale, non-compliant motorcycle helmets claiming to meet ECE/DOT testing

This type of stuff irks me.

Unsuspecting and uneducated consumers, and that means MOST people, believe that the standards are being met simply because a manufacturer says so. The the photos of the product do not conform to either of the standards that they advertise. Literally there is no way this meets the DOT or ECE standards just based on the photos. And the ECE, when you check their list of certified helmets, does not include this. Most likely this is one of those helmets that when hitting a hard object, will simply crack open like your skull.

And, don't ya know, some will buy them not caring. They don't believe they really need a helmet, they are just fulfilling the law requirement. Young and invincible in their own mind.
