I think they should not be required? What do you think?

As I work in the medical field I think they should be required to wear a helmet. If it is not required, why should we be required to wear seatbelts? I think a helmet would be more protection then a seatbelt. I have seen some pretty bad head trauma from riders with no helmets. It is not pretty.

No, I don't think they should. Laws should be made to prevent people from harming others. But, if someone wants to risk their own life, I think they should have that right.

better do so, or buy an open model or one which you can open on the front for slow cruising. sometimes a mosquito hits the front and then i'm glad about wearing a helmet. i hate coming home after a ride and pulling out the insects from between my teeth. ever got hit by a stone?

Required? No, but obviously it should be encouraged. Non-helmet riders should pay for their own health insurance, however.
