Update to Nevada Helmet Laws

In the state of Nevada all three wheeled vehicles are considered a Tri-Mobile. The state recently updated the state helmet law regarding Tri-Mobiles and the updated law goes into effect Oct 1, 2019.

The law now states that if the three wheeler has a saddle or handlebars you must wear a helmet (Can Ams, Harleys, Hondas etc.). It goes on to say that if the vehicle is fully enclosed and has a steering wheel, you do not have to wear a helmet (parking control vehicles). The law is non-specific regarding the Slingshot so clarification was sought from the state. Per a rep from the state, Slingshots are exempt. You do not have to wear a helmet in Nevada.

NRS 408 states the following:
. . .
“Trimobile” means every motor vehicle equipped with handlebars and a saddle seat and designed to travel with three
wheels in contact with the ground, at least one of which is power driven. The term does not include a motorcycle with a sidecar.
. . .
5. When a three-wheel vehicle, except a trimobile, on which the driver and passengers ride within an enclosed cab is being driven on a highway, the driver and passengers are not required to wear the protective devices
required by this section.
