Bicycle Helmet Age Requirements & Safety Tips

A helmet is one of the most effective ways to reduce a head injury from bicycle crashes. Kids should wear helmets when biking, skating or operating a scooter.

In Southlake, the City requires kids 18 years and under to wear a bicycle helmet.

Before you go shopping for your new headgear, here are a few helpful tips:

  1. Choose the correct helmet based on the type of activity.
  2. Make sure the helmet is the right fit and meets the S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) standards.
  3. Allow your child to select the helmet design because they are more likely to wear it.
