NJ Helmet Law Requires Tickets to Ridgewood Bicycle Flash Mob

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, In New Jersey, anyone under 17 years of age that rides a bicycle or is a passenger on a bicycle, or is towed as a passenger by a bicycle must wear a safety helmet. … All helmets must be properly fastened and fitted.

Looks like many young people not wearing helmets , the Ridgewood Police should ticket every single child and every parent for encouraging law breaking.

According to the NJ Division of Highway Traffic Safety each year, bicyclists are killed or injured in New Jersey due to bicycle crashes. Many bicycle deaths result from bicycle-motor vehicle collisions. However, injuries can happen anywhere, including parks, bike paths and driveways, and often do not involve motor vehicles.

Head injury is the most serious injury type and the most common cause of death among bicyclists. The most severe injuries are those to the brain that cause permanent damage.

  1. New jersey is a joke. Embarrassing to have anyone from other states or countries visit here. Havnt met someone from out of jersey who couldn’t wait to come back here. And yes , i am currently in the process of moving out of this state.

  2. Fine every single one of them and have the parents show up in court.

  3. Wait until you hear about how often motorists and passengers get head injuries in cars. They should wear helmets too

  4. Looks like a remake of Lord of the Flies….

  5. “The Law is for the obedience of fools and the guidance of wise people”. It is my hope that every person on this blog who says give them a ticket also drives at 25 mph or 30 mph when the law requires it otherwise STFU, lets not give the bullying bastards of a so called police force any more reason to perpetuate their misconduct.

    1. give them and their parents tickets !

  6. Ron – yes, I drive 25 mph. Even taught my kids where all of the speeds traps are.

  7. Ha Ha.
    I drive 25mph whneever there is someone behind me just to piss them off.
    They voted for this idiotic speed limit, now they have to live with it.

    If EVERYONE drove 25mph, the law would be repealed within 90 days.

    People just want a sign with 25mph so they can virtue signal while driving 40mph.
