  1. ron s-I believe helmets are a good saftey item. Had a bad accident Dec 07 that laid me up for 2 months. The ambulance driver said my gear and Helmet saved my life. I always shudder and say a little prayer when I see a non-helmeted rider. Houston, Tx

  2. Laws must be consistant to be fair and effective. How can a state (Florida) for example have a mandatory seat belt law and allow mtorcyclists to ride without helmets. A driver of a car or Tractor Trailer can be ticketed for no seat belt but a motorcyclist does not have to wear a helmet, only insurance. Mandatory helmet laws should be in affect in all states as common sense and to be consistant with seat belt laws which have proven to be affective.
