|That means when you walk into any business in California that has a repair
shop, and sells motorcycle safety helmets, ask them if they sell "DOT
approved" helmets; if they say yes, the store has violated those laws. The
store made a False and Misleading claim according to California law.
Fraud. Making false or misleading statements. Helmet sellers have got to
stop violating those laws, because they are perpetuating the hoax that the
rogue law officers are using to violate the law and your rights. Selling
helmets under false pretenses.
You should not get a ticket for not wearing an approved helmet when
approved helmets don't exist. And helmet salesmen should not be able to
claim they sell approved helmets if approved helmets don't exist.
The helmet sellers are helping to spread and prolong the problem the police
are creating when police ticket you for wearing a helmet that doesn't meet
the standard that only exists in the cop's imagination.
Know of a California shop that claims to sell 'approved' helmets?
File a complaint with the Department of Consumer Affairs.
