Helmet test results website.

What do you guys think about this website and their crash ratings on all types of helmets helmets? I thought it was pretty cool information.... Just click on the link and choose whatever brand then helmet and they will give you how many stars that helmet received in their test.

UK has diff. philosephy and requirements then the US, so unless you wear a BSE helmet, doesn't mean alot here.

Please help me understand the legal here. Are you saying that you can get ticketed for wearing a helmet that is not DOT certified? Personally I would at least feel as though you would be safer were a UK certified helmet versus no helmet. Just a question. Thanks

If you don't meet the helmet exemption requirement in Texas, then yes, you can be ticketed if your helmet is not DOT certified.
