    No helmet riders can pay their own medical bills if they have an accident that injurers their head.

    Best advice I ever got when buying a motorcycle helmet was "spend as much your head is worth to you".

    Eventually spending around $1500 (in hindsight still not enough!) and having spent two months in hospital following a motorcycle accident, not having a head injury to deal with on top of other injuries was great.

    I'd apply the same logic to cycle helmets if it were me, f=ma whether it's the car or the bike.

    That doesn't seem to be a very compelling argument to make helmets compulsory - everyone should wear one because nobody has complained...
    I'm all for you and your friends to wear helmets.
    Why should I?

    Your choice.
    Don't wear one...be a man of your convictions.

    I'd agree with you.
    Let the individual choose.

    I'd rather not break the law.
    Can we change the law?

    Still it's your choice if you want to wear one or not.
    If it is important to you then don't.....personally it doesn't concern me if you do or not.
    It's up to you.

    The medical experts indicate a flimsy helmet doesn't prevent brain injuries.
    How could it?
    I'm not sure the tribe has spoken.
    Why do you support a measure which doesn't have much logic or science to it?

    If you really want it up to me then support changing the law.
