Hawaii Trauma Injury Prevention will be hosting a forum to keep everyone injury free.
Hawaii state law only requires DOT-approved helmets for those drivers under 18. But traumatic brain injury is most common injuries that moped riders are seen for, if they are not wearing a helmet.
In Hawaii, only one person is allowed to ride on a moped and drivers must have a valid driver’s license or permit.
Hawaii Trauma Injury Prevention sponsors events to giveaway free helmets to audience members who attend a presentation.
