Submit a Nomination for Someone Saved by the Helmet

Ohio averages over 100 motorcycle fatalities per year with over 4,500 injury crashes occurring on its roadways. Wearing proper riding gear, along with taking a rider education class, are ways motorcyclists can increase their chances of surviving a crash.

The Someone Saved by the Helmet award is given throughout the year to those who survive serious crashes while wearing a helmet. Included in the presentation will be a certificate of recognition and a new replacement helmet. Motorcycle Ohio hopes that by acknowledging riders who wear protective gear, it will increase awareness of the life-saving value of motorcycle helmets.

Who Qualifies?

Persons involved in a crash that occurred not longer than one year prior can be considered. The crashes must be verifiable through state crash records. Candidates for membership can be proposed by someone with knowledge of the crash or by the rider involved. Persons cited in the crash (at fault) or for serious offenses, like driving under the influence, will not be considered. Motorcycle Ohio discourages those who survived when another individual was killed from applying.

How to Nominate a Rider

The most important point is that regardless of the circumstances surrounding the crash, a person is more likely to survive a crash while wearing a helmet.
