Is this Modification Legal?
"Every state/province has its own legislation when it comes to motor vehicles. The state of California does not consider the vehicle operator as part of the vehicle, so the laws that govern the lighting of a motor vehicle do not apply, and therefore this is legal there. In BC, Canada, it is technically illegal, but we have ridden with it on while around, beside, and in front of countless police officers and have not been pulled over for it. Our goal is to improve safety, and we think most authorities recognize this.
Please phone your local police department if you would like peace of mind before pledging. We are not responsible for any encounters you may come across with your local authorities."
In the intro it states:
"It is strong enough to withstand tenacious winds and rain with ease."
But in the FAQ it states:
Does it work in the rain?
Yes, but it is not recommended. It's best just to switch the helmet off if it starts to rain and let it dry completely before turning it on. The electronic components are not waterproof.
