Hel­mets un­der scru­tiny

North Coast Weekender - - Front Page -

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.”
