What kind of helmet is required for all motorcyclists throughout Canada? We ask lawyer Steve Grover, in this Ask The Lawyers Quick Question.

Steve Grover: 

Well, first of all, I recommend people to wear a motorcycle helmet. I've seen some people on the street even carrying, not wearing a helmet. But obviously the most important standard is Department of Transportation, the DOT. Make sure the motorcycle helmet you buy is DOT approved. If you can get one that's also Snell improved S-N-E-L-L, I'd highly recommend spending the more money for that 'cause they have more stringent requirements of testing. And motorcycle helmet, I would recommend getting a full face one. I know a lot of people like to wear the beanie one or a military helmet looking motorcycle helmet. But myself, I've been riding motorcycles since I've been five years old, and whenever I go on the road, I like to wear a full face helmet with a visor and I recommend people getting the best helmet they can afford. I know they're quite expensive, but the most important part of your body is your brain and your head.
