Why should you always wear your helmet?

You have recently started riding your bicycle to work in Indiana. You have found that it allows you flexibility in traveling, it is more efficient than your gas-guzzling vehicle and it allows you to get exercise and enjoy nature. Because you do not feel like fixing your hair every day, you have opted not to wear your helmet the last couple of times. After all, how dangerous is it really, if you are still aware and following all of the rules of the road? Understanding the critical reasons why you should always wear your helmet may help you change your perspective.

Emergency personnel, construction workers, law enforcement officers and citizens are killed every day across the country due to being hit when on the side of the road and out of their vehicles. These people are typically not just standing on the roadside to be standing there. They may be doing their job or reacting to their vehicle being disabled. Anytime you get out of your vehicle on an Indiana roadway, you become vulnerable, but sometimes there is no way to avoid it. The state has stepped in to try to help keep you safer if you find yourself in this situation.

Are there exceptions to dog bite liability?

If you own a dog in Indiana, it is your general responsibility to ensure that dog is not running loose or harming people.

You are responsible for any injuries your dog causes if you do not have your dog properly contained and the dog was not provoked in any way.

Because a motorcycle does not offer the protective barrier of a car, riders are far more likely to be severely injured and even killed when they are involved in a collision. It is imperative that all drivers and riders on the road be aware of the factors that commonly cause these accidents and take steps to proactively prevent them.
