Massachusetts law requires all motorcycle drivers and riders to wear helmets that conform to the minimum standards prescribed by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles.
The mandatory helmet law also applies to anyone riding in a sidecar.
Motorcycle operators must also wear eyeglasses, goggles, or a protective face shield, if the bike is not equipped with a windshield or screen.
