Everyone has to wear a helmet no matter what age! :)
any one under 21 MUST wear a helmet, but anyone over has to have insurance but doesn't have to wear a helmet
It depends on your age. If you are 16 you have to wear a helmet. But if you want your head to get blown off that's on you. It is safe to wear a helmet for protection.
It is up to you, however the manufactures suggest you should wear a helmet.
