If not for the millions of dollars of people's tax money going to motorists who don't have healthcare insurance (that's right, the STATE pays their medical bills - which means YOU pay their medical bills), how about doing it for all future children who have parents that feel they don't need to wear a helmet and die or suffer TBI in a crash. TBI and death can be reduced if motorcyclist are required to wear a helmet.
My boyfriend and father of my son is currently in Shepherd Center in Atlanta, GA. He should not have survived his motorcycle accident, but he did. He should not have come out of a vegetative state, but he did. He is in a wheelchair going through rehab for the severest of Traumatic Brain Injuries.... If Ryan had been REQUIRED to wear a helmet in one of the few states that DON't require them, then he would not be suffering. His family wouldn't have been turned upside-down and his son fatherless.
Please help change this law and change lives. If people wear helmets, lives are saved and tax dollars are used in other critical areas.
