Well that's nice - when in doubt, give the public the shaft.

Any possibility the judge that made the ruling will declare the CHP brass that issued these orders in contempt of court and have them jailed?

From California's Vehicle code. No, it doesn't say the helmet needs to be worn on the head, but I'm willing to bet there's some reference elsewhere stating that it's to be worn appropriately. No, I'm not going to define "appropriately" (nor do I guarantee its spelling). Somewhere out there, I suppose, is a Federal Standard regarding motorcycle helmets, and I'll bet you get to put a DOT sticker on said helmet when you meet those standards.


CVC 27802.
Each helmet sold or offered for sale for use by drivers and passengers of motorcycles and motorized bicycles shall be conspicuously labeled in accordance with the federal standard which shall constitute the manufacturer's certification that the helmet conforms to the applicable federal motor vehicle safety standards.

CVC 27803.
(a) A driver and any passenger shall wear a safety helmet meeting requirements established pursuant to Section 27802 when riding on a motorcycle, motor-driven cycle, or motorized bicycle.
(b) It is unlawful to operate a motorcycle, motor-driven cycle, or motorized bicycle if the driver or any passenger is not wearing a safety helmet as required by subdivision (a).
(c) It is unlawful to ride as a passenger on a motorcycle, motor-driven cycles, or motorized bicycle if the driver or any passenger is not wearing a safety helmet as required by subdivision (a).
(d) This section applies to persons who are riding on motorcycles, motor-driven cycles, or motorized bicycles operated on the highways.
