The ultimate test for the motorbike helmet


With it versus without it

Motorbikes are all over the streets of Curahuasi.  Unfortunately hardly any of the (normally male) drivers wear a helmet.  Peruvian Law says that helmets must be worn, but what use is a law that even the police do not adhere to?  In any case most of the drivers believe that they do not need to wear a helmet.

On Tuesday night the ultimate motorbike helmet test took place on the streets of Curahuasi: two motorbikes crashed into each other with a slam.  Driver A wore a helmet, Driver B did not.

The test’s result is very insightful: nothing happened to Driver A bar a few scratches; helmetless Driver B had multiple facial fractures.

Hopefully Driver B will wear a helmet in future.
