"It is legal in Florida to ride without a helmet but you have to realize you're on two wheels and don't have a car around you to protect you in an accident. While you have the freedom to decide whether or not you want to wear a helmet, you must think of your safety above all else." says Scott Donaldson, attorney.
There are other ways you can protect yourself. By utilizing defensive driving techniques, you can better avoid dangerous maneuvers from negligent drivers. Plus, you must remain alert and always keep aware of your blind spots.
