Do I Have to Wear a Helmet When Riding My Bicycle in Gainesville and Ocala?

Our Free, No Obligation, Florida Accident Guide Helps Drivers Be Prepared in Case of an Accident VIEW DETAILS.

Florida law only requires persons under the age of 16 to wear a helmet when riding a bicycle.

However, as an accident injury attorney that has represented many seriously injured bikers in Ocala, Gainesville and all of Central Florida, I recommend that everyone wear a helmet to protect themselves from traumatic brain injury, serious injury, or even death.

The best way to get in the habit of wearing a helmet is to find one that gets you excited-fashionable, comfortable, and safe.
