Is it ethical for NY state to enforce the helmet law while riding motorcycle

Ny state makes motorcycle riders wear helmets, or they will be fined. This law is controversial because half helmets are legal to wear. A typical half helmet is only rated to 25mph most motorcycle accidents occur at speeds of 50mph or greater and by making a law that requires riders to wear a helmet that only offers protection up to 25mph. If there is going to be a law on motorcycle safety it should be for safety and require the use of a full helmet to insure the safety of the rider or no helmet at all. Is this ethical to make a law that does not really have effectiveness for safety?
