German Court Says Sikhs Must Wear Helmets, No Exceptions

German Court Says Sikhs Must Wear Helmets, No Exceptions The court states that safety is most important for riders and drivers. One of Germany’s top five federal courts ruled last week that Sikh individuals are not exempt from country-wide motorcycle helmet laws. This was in response to an appeal by a Sikh man, who had argued that he could not successfully fit a helmet over his dastaar, the traditional turban that Sikh men (and some women) wear to demonstrate honor and spirituality within their faith.

Safety prevails.

Back in May, a new bill was handed over to the Missouri state Governor, calling for a repeal of the mandatory helmet law for riders 18 and older. In a surprising twist of events, the bill that was expected to go through was vetoed.

While early reports stated that Governor Mike Parson who was to have the last say on the bill was likely to agree to it, the politician made a judgment call and instead vetoed the repeal. This means motorcycle helmets will remain mandatory in the state.

The repeal was submitted in an “omnibus transportation bill” (a melting pot of new bills) that included a number of other amendments the Governor disagreed with. This lead him to turn the entire bill down, including the clause about headgear legislation.

Supporters of the bill expressed their disappointment with the decision. “We’re on this big criminal-justice-reform kick, why are we wanting to turn people into criminals for not wearing a helmet?” House sponsor Shane Roden told St. Louis Public Radio. “I’ve already seen one motorcycle rider not wearing his helmet the other day I passed. They’re just not going to care.”

While advocates and rights groups’ argument revolved mainly around the right to choose to wear a helmet or not, medical experts have spoken out against the bill with statistics on their side. In fact, according to the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety, a rider who hits the road without a helmet is 38-percent more likely to die in case of a crash.

While the reasons to veto the bill might seem murky and even unfair to some, ultimately, we’re glad it didn’t go through. Yes, everyone is allowed to make a choice, but safety should matter more than freedom and optional helmets shouldn’t even be a thing.
