...the old "wasn't wearing a helmet" line.

Here in California that was the requisite line in all fatal two wheeler vs. anything collisions reported in the media.

It put the idea in the public's mind that somehow a helmet would have prevented the fatality. Nevermind that it was drunk doing 70 on a residential street, or someone getting hit in a left turn.

Sure enough when a weak governor with Presidential aspirations needed a cause to boost his sagging poll ratings, he had a dramatic bill signing in front of an otheopedic hospital for the states motorcycle helmet law.

Helmets can save lives but I always say: "LET THOSE WHO RIDE DECIDE!"

Yes. Even any moped riders and bicycle riders under 18 must wear helmets.

Thank you, Big Nanny government.
