    A man driving in an anti-helmet rally in New York died Sunday after he lost control of his motorcycle and hit his head on the pavement.

    The 55-year-old was part of a group that campaigns against mandatory helmet laws in the U.S. State troopers suggested he likely would have survived the fall if he'd been wearing a helmet.

    They will always say that.

    More than likely he would have survived and been a quadriplegic. Fuck helmet laws, we don't have them in Illinois and I only wear one when the temp drops to cold temps.

    Not a good example, he was wearing a helmet. I would rather be dead that to have his brain injury. I also know a guy with a serious brain injury from a car accident that killed the two other people in the car.


    If only they wore helmets.

    Figured he was because California has strict helmet laws. Oh well that's iron clad then, helmets will always save your life and the quadriplegic angle is probably wrong too. I'm going to suggest you wear one in your car too. Dave, classmate I mentioned who now has brain damage, wasn't wearing one.

    I guess what I'm really saying is I don't want to wear one and your laughing at the story just reminds me of all the people we in A.B.A.T.E. have had to debate against here in Illinois to assure that we don't have to wear one.

    If you want to wear a helmet that's fine, you don't have to be a dick though.
