It’s interesting how the perception of safety is so different between scooters and motorcycles. It’s particularly evident in the typical choices in helmets and riding apparel. An open-face, 3/4 or half helmet is often times referred to as a “scooter helmet” — as though your jaw is somehow impervious to concrete just because you’re on a scooter. This two-tiered approach is nothing new, as this vintage safety movie demonstrates. Of course, any helmet is better than none.
