PSB & Non PSB Approved Helmets

Excellent points made.

The revised proposed fine is actually $1,000, up from the existing $500. And the new proposed ruling will apply to the PILLION as well, which means if both using non-PSB helmets, the total fine is $2,000 to the rider. OUCH! Currently the law only applies to the rider and NOT the pillion.

In the statement they did say that similar penalties will be imposed on Malaysia riders, if that is to be believed, let's see.

Last but not least, we're all hoping that TP will have more sense than to catch and fine 'errant' riders who use Arai/Shoei or other PROPERLY certified helmets, but that begs that question, if they are already NOT implementing the law, why table a proposal/legislation specifically to INCREASE the penalty? And as we all know, if they propose something, they must 'wayang' to show that they are enforcing the new law, which is VERY concerning.

We're written in to LTA / TP / MHA officially, let's see if they reply.

Thx for the correction! You are absolutely correct to say if they propose something new, there is an intention to enforce it.

Indeed it is most concerning now to us riders who own a helmet that is certified to international standards but just don't have the PSB sticker. I think it is important for us (even the shops themselves that sell non PSB approved helmets) to get an official answer from the authorities on this matter as soon as we can or we will always be looking over our shoulders for TP.

Thanks for asking the hard questions for the community, SBF! Looking forward eagerly to whatever reply from the authorities/news with regard to this matter.

I strongly disbelieve that Foreign riders i.e. our Malaysian bros will get penalised for not having a PSB approved sticker. I mean how are they going to get a PSB sticker across the causeway. What thi

Motorcycle association urges review of helmet safety standard after stiffer penalties for sellers proposed

Personally I feel safer wearing ECE or SNELL certified helmet than cheap PSB approved helmets because premium helmet can do better fit . Most if not all PSB approved helmets that are cheap aren't safe. Majority of these helmets do not provide good cushion fit and during accident, the helmet cannot protect your head properly. Likely the helmet can't stay on your head nicely during impact and causing more harm instead.
I do agree that a PSB approved is the minimum requirement but any international recognized safety standard shall be adopted as well. I can only hope TP who are rider themselves are able to make the correct judgement call when any rider is found to be wearing a non PSB approved but with ECE, SNELL certified helmet.
