• Colorado Revised Statute 42-4-1502(4.5)(a) requires persons under 18 years of age not operate or carry a passenger who is under 18 years of age on a motorcycle on a highway in Colorado unless the person and passenger are wearing protective helmets designed for use by operators of motorcycles, and the helmet is secured properly on the person's head with a chin strap while the motorcycle is in motion.
• Colorado Revised Statute 42-4-232(1) and Model Traffic Code 232(1) require that both riders and passengers wear goggles or eyeglasses with lenses made of safety glass or plastic.
