    Vermont is a helmet reflective state?

    A local club member stated that Vermont is a helmet reflective state. Does anyone know what is the essence of this requirement?

    As a visitor, I don't think you have to worry about it.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    reflectives

    I heard the rumor and chased down the law. Yes, you must have reflective stuff on your helmet. However, the law doesn't say how much is required. I have a band of black reflective Scotchlite tape around the bottom edge of my helmet, maybe 1/2" wide, where there's already a black band. In daylight it's a little shiny, but otherwise invisible. (I have more reflective than that, but for people who don't want to mar the look of their helmet that's pretty subtle.)

    Um, not really

    Well, technically the law says:

    ?º 1256. Motorcycles-Headgear

    No person may operate or ride upon a motorcycle upon a highway unless he wears upon his head protective headgear reflectorized in part and of a type approved by the commissioner. The headgear shall be equipped with either a neck or chin strap. (Added 1967, No. 264 (Adj. Sess.), ?º 1.)



    but I have yet to see a reflectorized helmet being used by anybody I know...so if you don't have a reflector, don't worry about getting one.
