Under current Delaware law, every adult operating or riding a motorcycle is required to have a helmet in his or her possession while operating or riding a motorcycle and every person up to 19 years of age must wear a helmet. This Act requires that every person, regardless of age, who operates or rides a motorcycle wear a helmet while doing so. Nineteen states and the District of Columbia currently require all motorcyclists to wear a helmet. Of the 49 motorcycle fatalities in Delaware since 2014, just over half of the motorcyclists, 28, were wearing helmets at the time of the crash.
