In New York State, it is a legal requirement for all bicyclists under the age of 14 years old to wear safety-certified bicycle helmets when they are operating or riding as passengers on bicycles (as per Section 1238(5) of the law). Additionally, children aged 1 to 4 must wear certified bicycle helmets and ride in specially designed child safety seats. Failure to comply with these helmet requirements can result in legal penalties, so it's important for both young riders and their parents or guardians to ensure that helmets are worn when riding bicycles in New York State.
