Feds Consider New Helmet Standards

Recently, it was reported by the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) that the US DOT is contemplating some new requirements for motorcycle helmet labels, as well as testing methods and tolerances. The federal government rulemaking process requires that the proposed new rule be made available to the public for a period of time to allow the general public offer comment.

The MRF has submitted comments on the proposed changes to current standards and is encouraging you to do the same. Read the full MRF comments on the internet by visiting www.regualations.gov and search for Docket number NHTSA-2008-0157-0001 or by using this link.
