Required in California for several years now. Personally I wouldn't ride without one in any case. In fact I wear a full face helmet since my accident in 1974.

I don't agree with it being a law but it supposedly holds down public cost for healthcare. I couldn't tell you if that's really happening. My personal opinion, if you have a $5 head wear a $5 helmet. So I guess if you have a no dollar head, wear no helmet.

HA! Our speech is not intended to avoid an accident. That just makes no sense at all to me.

I live in Maine, we don't have helmet laws here. I do allot of riding all over New England and there are a few states the do have the Law... If I go on a long ride I always have to remember to strap on a helmet... It is a pain, but that is just the way it is.. Personally I feel old school about the whole thing. It's a freedom thing. We should be free to choose.

BTW: Due to past experiences, I ALWAYS wear a helmet. The shield keeps the dust out of my eyes and the bugs off my teeth! ...J J
