Helmet Laws

I will have to pick this topic up again next week cuz I have lots more to say, but while I’m out for the weekend and doing Scoot-A-Que stuff, this should hold you over.

(Not really a fun “let’s kick off the weekend topic” I know.  Sorry, I will try to pick something better next week.)

From Wednesday’s New York Times, “motorcycles account for more than 10% of the highway deaths.”  If that wasn’t bad enough, they make up less than 1% of all vehicle traffic.  So motorcycles are over-represented.

So wear your helmet out there!  Scooters too.  (For the purposes of the study the article mentions, the scooters are all considered motorcycles.  So when they say motorcycles, they really mean you.)
