So you don't have to wear one, but I highly recommend that anyone driving a motorcycle and a moped is even is worse because the mopeds are small and the cars don't see them, and if you hit... If you collide with a car with no motorcycle helmet on or your motorcycle crashes with no motorcycle helmet on, you're gonna be very, very seriously injured.
