    There's always an idiot who would rather die young than live sane.

    Here are some more numbers , 58% of those killed in 2012 DIDN’T have a motorcycle license. The majority of Michigan motorcyclists killed in 2012, "129 total" were wearing helmets.In 2008 there were 124 motorcycle fatalities in Michigan, with a mandatory helmet law. 38% of those killed DIDN’T have a motorcycle license, AND every one was wearing a helmet. Helmets do not prevent accidents, they haven't reduced fatalities, nor do they do they make for a SAFER motorcycle rider. Helmets MAY reduce some types of injuries OR they may INTENSIFY the severity of injuries. The crash helmet's effectiveness is totally dependent upon the particular circumstances of the accident over which a helmet has no control.

    Can't cancel my accidental negative vote. +1 for this, but all you're doing is using facts. Nannies don't need facts, they like feeeeelings.
