Arkansas

Arkansas law requires motorcycle operators and passengers under 21 to wear a helmet. The helmet requirement does not apply to three-wheel motorcycles equipped with a cab and a windshield which do not exceed twenty horsepower (20 hp) when such motorcycles are used by municipal police departments.

All operators and riders, however, regardless of age, must wear protective glasses, goggles or transparent face shields.

Oklahoma

Oklahoma law requires only those motorcycle operators and passengers under 18 to wear helmets. Headgear must contain lining, padding, and chin straps, and it must not distort the view of the driver.

Operators of all ages, however, must wear goggles or a face shield of a material and design that protects the driver from foreign objects, unless the bike is equipped with a windshield of sufficient quality, size, and thickness to protect the operator from foreign objects.

Missouri

Every person operating or riding as a passenger on any motorcycle or motor-tricycle (trike) on any highway in Missouri must wear protective headgear at all times while the vehicle is in motion. The protective headgear must meet reasonable standards and specifications as established by the Director of Motor Vehicles.

Texas

Texas motorcyclists under 21 years old MUST wear a helmet. After that point, a rider may choose not to wear a helmet ONLY if he or she has proof of an applicable health insurance plan that provides benefits in the event of an accident.

Louisiana

In Louisiana, anyone who operates or rides on a motorcycle must wear a helmet that is secured with a chin strap at all times when the bike is in motion. Police authorities of a village, town, city, or parish may issue a permit exempting members of organizations sponsoring, conducting, or participating in parades or other public exhibitions from the helmet requirement, while such members are actually participating in a parade or other public exhibition. The helmet requirement does not apply to a person operating or riding in an auto-cycle if the vehicle is equipped with a roof which meets or exceeds standards for a safety helmet

In addition to chin straps, all helmets must consist of lining, padding, and a visor, and any other specifications that the Commissioner of the Department of Motor Vehicles may require.

Tennessee

In Tennessee, the driver of a motorcycle and any riders must wear either a crash helmet that meets federal standards, or, if the driver or passenger is 21 or older, a helmet that meets federal motor vehicle safety standards, has ventilation airways that exceed one and one half inches in diameter, and has a label on it that says the helmet complies with the requirements of the American Society for Testing Materials, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Southern Impact Research Center, or the Snell Foundation.

The exceptions to Tennessee’s mandatory helmet law are for those riding motorcycles with an enclosed cab, that have three wheels in contact with the ground, that weigh less than 1,500 pounds, and that have a capacity to maintain posted highway speed limits.

Mississippi

All motorcycle riders in Mississippi must wear a helmet.
