helmets save lives, imagine that!

http://www.foxnews.com/health/2016/0...?intcmp=hphz02

The study team looked at records for patients admitted to Spectrum Health Hospital and at state transportation department records of fatalities at crash scenes for the seven-month motorcycle season (April to November) in 2011, before the law was repealed, and for the same period in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

Among the accident victims brought to the hospital, the proportion of riders who had not been wearing a helmet rose four-fold, from 7 percent to 28 percent, the researchers found.

About 10 percent of non-helmeted riders brought to the hospital died there, compared to 3 percent of those who had been wearing helmets.

Among riders who died at the crash scene, the proportion not wearing helmets rose from 14 percent before the law was repealed to 68 percent afterward.

The real question is, what percent of reported motorcycle accidents result in a fatality?

If they don't want to wear a helmet who cares? Just let natural selection run its course... Anybody that doesn't want to wear a helmet probably isn't fit to breed anyway.

Except they are a contributing factor in my insurance premiums, so it's not like it doesn't affect me at all. That said, I am tempted to agree with you

Let's not let insurance premiums get in the way or 'murica, mmkay?

You're starting to sound like Obama.

I agree with the natural selection/population control theory
