Helmet law expanded

"Conor's Law," which expands the helmet requirement in Connecticut, takes effect October 1, 2018.

Below is a summary of Public Act No. 18-167 outlining the expansion of protective headgear requirements. The new law expands the types of activities during which children under age 16 must wear protective headgear and adds parks to the places where such headgear must be worn. Current law requires any child under age 16 who rides a bicycle on a public road to wear protective headgear that meets the minimum specifications established by the American National Standards Institute or the Snell Memorial Foundation. The new statute expands the types of activities during which these children must wear such protective headgear to include skateboarding,  nonmotorized scootering, roller skating, and in-line skating; it adds parks, including skateboarding parks, to the places where the protective headgear must be worn; and it requires that the protective headgear is properly fitted and fastened. By law, failure to wear protective headgear is not considered a violation or an offense and cannot be considered contributory negligence by a parent or a child or be admissible in any civil action.
