A rather foolish repeal effort

This is your helmetless head. This is it after a motorcycle accident. Any questions?

Please supply your own mental image for the above tag line.

Although I show Easy Geezer with the wind freely blowing through his gray hair and grizzled beard, the current ‘Repeal the helmet law’ effort in Michigan makes no sense – not only because of the inevitable increase in catastrophic injury but also due to increased cost.

Motorcycles already account for a disproportionate share of the money paid by all drivers toward health care costs for those injured in traffic accidents. Through the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association drivers and motorcycle riders receive unlimited medical coverage for injuries suffered in traffic accidents. Motorcyclists supply 2 percent of the fund. They account for 8 percent of MCCA claims.  MLive (quote about claims comes from MotorcycleHelmetthe Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association)
