CHILD HELMET SAFETY LAW

Oregon law now requires youth 15 years of age and younger to wear safety helmets when riding on skateboards, scooters and in-line skates in public places.

Head injuries are the number one cause of serious injury and death resulting from collisions and falls when riding on roller sports recreation devices such as skateboards, scooters and in-line skates. Protective head gear (safety helmets) of the type already required for youth riding bicycles have been proven to prevent many serious injuries and deaths.
