Three points are greatly affected.
1. Try to wear a riding helmet
2. A guardian strives to wear a riding helmet when a minor who guards it uses a bicycle
3. Bicycle damages liability insurance etc. must be enrolled (enforcement from 1st April).
1 and 2 are obligation requirements and 3 is mandatory. Even so, please be aware that there are regulations as it is likely that you will be called by the police unless you are wearing a helmet. Also, if you do not strive to 1 or 2 when accidentally claiming insurance companies some form of accident, you can be disadvantaged.
