What about helmets?

King County has a helmet law which applies in Redmond. This helmet law also applies in Seattle. Seattle’s bike share permit requires the bike share companies to “have visible language that notifies the user that… helmets shall be worn while riding a bicycle in King County…”. Currently, none of the Seattle bike share vendors are providing helmets. Redmond can enforce the helmet law, but is not obligated to. We are considering how to address this in the permit conditions.
