Saron D. Flicker: No denying helmets

April 4, 2013 

Helmets protect

Is it against our civil liberties to be required to wear a seat belt while riding in a car? How is wearing a helmet while riding on a motorcycle different? Motorcycles offer less protection than cars. Requiring $10,000 insurance! Is that liability or medical? Medical costs for an injury are many times that amount. We the people will be picking up that bill. Helmets should be required. Denial doesn’t work!
