Loose helmets

The use of mopeds amongst the young has increased and a couple of years ago a compulsory moped license was introduced. In order of acquiring the license you have to pass a written test about traffic regulations and safety. Sadly enough 14 adolescents were last year killed in moped accidents, and 5 of the victims lost their helmet in the accident. Wearing a helmet is compulsory according to law, both for the driver and the passenger riding on the moped.

According to the police many youngsters use their helmets but sadly they are not properly attached below their chins
becoming loose in a accident.

Well moped age is here so this is an issue much talked about for the moment. Not to wear your helmet, but to wear it properly attached to your head.
