[QUOTE=rumrunn6;20225762][QUOTE=Hippiebrian;20225468]why does no one recommend helmets for whatever sent the larger portion of patients to the head trauma unit?
I think they mentioned car crashes. ppl aren't going to wear helmets driving to work on 495 I can tell you that
50 years ago people said the same thing about seat belts. I remember one boss who was insulted if you buckled up when he was driving - felt it was sign you didn't trust his driving.

But based on the studies on the ridership declines when the helmet laws were introduced in NZ and Australia it seems pretty clear that overall health would be improved if they were repealed.
