Whether one supports helmet laws or not...that's one crappy piece of journalism. Rife with suggesting that helmets help reduce neck injuries...when in fact they do the opposite.

I like this quote:
"Meanwhile, most of the costs to treat riders who are in crashes are paid by employers, insurers and taxpayer-funded programs, such as Medicaid and Medicare."

Duh...yeah insurers pay the cost...that's why we pay for freakin health insurance. Employers? Just what are employers paying outside the normal health benefits they pay anyway?

Helmet laws are joke anyway...I see the way they are enforced in could wear a tupperware bowl and not get ticketed. I think not wearing a helmet is dumb...but I think this reporter is dumber.
I agree....even though the last thing I want to do is drag politics into this pristine unpolluted forum.
It's not the governments job to protect us from ourselves. Our mothers do that.
