Where you live is it the law that you have to wear a helmet when riding your moped? I'd like to get a list of states in the US that I don' t have to wear a helmet in. -- here in Michigan it's not required, but is for motorcycles. In Ohio and Illinois (close neighbors), you can drive a motorycle without a helmet too.

Do you wear one anyway? Personally I think that helmet laws are too imposing on your personal choice at personal protection. I'm not hurting anyone but myself if i crash without a helmet - so why should the law dictate my action on protection myself?

I get people yelling out of their cars at me all the time -- "GET A HELMET!". They seem so concerned that I'm not "obeying the law" -- they don't even seem to know the law, and why would they care if I'm wearing a helmet or not? -- mindless citizens.
