Recommendation Regarding Universal Motorcycle Helmet Laws — Community Preventive Services Task Force
The Community Preventive Services Task Force (Task Force) recommends universal motorcycle helmet laws (laws that apply to all motorcycle operators and passengers) based on strong evidence of effectiveness. Evidence indicates that universal helmet laws increase helmet use, decrease motorcycle-related fatal and nonfatal injuries, and are substantially more effective than no law or only partial motorcycle helmet laws.
CDC scientists and subject matter experts, in collaboration with a wide range of government, academic, policy, and practice-based partners, conducted a systematic review of all available studies to develop this recommendation with the Task Force’s oversight.
