    26 September 2008 by john

  • Wearing top-name motorcycle helmet could cost you thousands, say testers

    24 September 2008 by Steve Farrell

    Wearing a crash helmet which failed to score the maximum five stars in new safety tests could mean less compensation after a crash, according to experts. Insurers will argue it was your choice to wear only a three-or-four-star helmet and that you are therefore partly responsible for the extent of any injuries, it was claimed. Helmets to achieve fewer than five stars in new Government-approved...
