    If you read the law from the link that was posted, the answer is in black and white. The DTI (department of trade and industry) has the ball to inspect all helmets, imported or domestic in origin, and granting their sticker of approval. EEC approval and/or who says they are the best means absolutely nothing. The "PS mark or ICC Certificate" is what they will be looking for, not EEC.

    Just get some printed or surely in a city like this, there will be some enterprising young fellows, who will sell them, when the time comes!:D

    $10 head= $10 helmet.:wink:

    Sorry to hear about your stepson WD. I too sometimes ride without a helmet. Really dumb Idea.

    also no matter how the law is spelled out (meaning driver only) like some places in Thailand.
    All riders should be wearing a helmet.

    :o Sorry to hear about this and I agree with you helmets on, My vote would go to the enforcement of this Law, Every one not just the Driver should where one. Two wheels are a Must, Three well they are a Little More Stable but I have seen them Tip over. Best regards to your step son for a speedy recovery. :smile:
