Petition Wear a Helmet – include skateboards, scooters & roller blades in bike helmet law

Currently there is a law in Jersey that requires children 13 and under to wear a helmet when riding a bike. This petition requests to amend Road Traffic (No. 60) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 to include
skateboards, scooters & roller blades.

More details

It would also be worth discussing in the assembly if the age
requirements of this law should be raised. Please watch 1 Feb 2024 Channel ITV news story of the importance of helmet safety to prevent life altering or life ending head injuries. Safety first - No helmet, No ride.
