Don’t be a kamote, wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle.

It’s an obvious fact that you should wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle. However, some riders in the Philippines tend to take for granted the benefits and protection a helmet can give in case they got involved in an accident. 

If you look into the numbers, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said that there were a total of 31,279 motorcycle accidents last year in the metro. The said number translates to an average of 86 motorcycle-related incidents per day. The MMDA also shared that the number of persons involved in a motorcycle-related road crash was 14,553. The stat stated that 154 of those translate to the numbers of riders.

Ride safe always

With that in mind, wearing a good quality helmet is essential when you’re riding a motorcycle. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), wearing a helmet decreases the risk and severity of injuries by about 72 percent. WHO added that it also brings down the chances of death by up to 39 percent. The numbers speak for themselves, and if you’re still skeptical about the importance of wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle, you’re probably a hardheaded kamote that brings a negative impression on the whole two wheels community.

Helmets can save your life

Moreover, wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle is required by Philippine law that’s known as the Republic Act 10054 or the Motorcycle Helmet Act of 2009. The said law clearly states that “all motorcycle riders, including drivers and back riders, shall at all times wear standard protective motorcycle helmets while driving, whether long or short drives, in any type of road and highway.” In short, you should wear a helmet whenever you ride a motorcycle. 

As such, wearing a helmet is the simplest and most effective way to reduce head injuries and fatalities from motorcycle crashes. It can save your life and reduce the severity of the injuries you might inflict. With that in mind, Blade Auto Center offers good quality helmets that you can purchase on its online store.

One of the helmet brands that Blade PH carries is HiRo, which comes with an ECE certification. ECE or Economic Commission for Europe is the European approval of the minimum safety requirements of a motorcycle helmet. This certification is used in about 50 countries worldwide.

HiRo helmets offered in Blade PH’s online store can come in either as modular or full-face type. Modular helmets come with a hinge that allows the chinbar to lift open, which allows a rider to have a feel of fresh air while at a stoplight. Full-face helmets, on the other hand, is designed to cover the rider’s entire head, and it doesn’t come with a hinge system on the chinbar. Motorcycle experts say that full-face helmets provide the best level of protection, especially when you’re riding at a relatively high speed.
