Is there such a thing as earphones for a helmet? I don't need an intercom system right now - I would just like to hear some music. I wear a flip face helmet.
The reason for the confusion is that it says headset, not helmet. A judge may argue, though, that the helmet becomes a headset when the speakers are installed.27400. A person operating a motor vehicle or bicycle may not wear a
headset covering, or earplugs in, both ears.
Sorry, the rest of the law:Selias said:So, according to California Law you are not allowed to wear ear protection from noise (AKA: ear plugs)???
