Kentucky’s Motorcycle Helmet Law

In the State of Kentucky there are only a few motorcycle helmet rules. Anyone 21 years old or younger has to wear a motorcycle helmet, whether they are operating a motorcycle or they are traveling as a passenger.

You are also required to wear a helmet if you have a motorcycle instruction permit and if you have had a valid license for less than a year. More information can be obtained from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Kentucky motorcycle manual.

If you fail to wear a helmet when you should be, it’s highly likely that you will receive a traffic violation and face a fine. If you fail to wear a helmet and you’re injured in an accident any personal injury lawsuit you file will be affected. This is likely to be the case even if the other driver was at-fault for the accident.

This is the case because Kentucky uses a comparative negligence rule when the plaintiff is trying to get compensation for their injuries. This means that a judge or a jury will determine your percentage of fault, and use that percentage to reduce any compensation you may receive.
