A new helmet law goes into effect on October 1, 2018 that affects all Connecticut skateboarders. Children under age 15 must wear protective headgear while riding a skateboard, roller skating or inline skating. Dubbed “Conor’s Law,” the legislation was introduced in memory of Conor Irwin, a 14-year-old Ledyard High School student who died in 2016 after a skateboard injury.
