Take it on the chin

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - NEWS -

ROAD Safety Com­mis­sioner Kim Pa­palia has re­minded mo­tor­cy­cle rid­ers this week to be safe on WA roads. Speak­ing to co­in­cide with Mo­tor­cy­cle Safety Week, he said the deaths of three rid­ers this year, who lost their hel­mets in crashes, had raised con­cerns about cor­rect fas­ten­ing. “One of the es­sen­tial safety fac­tors about a hel­met is do­ing your chin strap safely and ac­cu­rately,” he said. “Pass a dou­ble-d chin strap all the way through, fold it back through and do it up. “It se­cures the chin strap and the hel­met won’t come off; that’s es­sen­tial for sur­viv­ing a crash.”
