Well a helmet could save your precious life where as some people argue that is just another law to take away one's freedom and that they like living their own lifestyle and don't care about death. So what is your opinion/perspective on this?

Helemts do save lives I am here today because I chose to wear my helmet. I have lived in Arizona for 4 years and now Ohio for the past 2. Both states do not have a helmet law. I think this is tupid but I have to repect a persons right of choice. If you want to whack your head off the street when you go down then I won't stand in your way. As for me though I always wear it. Even in the hot arizona summer sun of 115' I still wore it.

I think it should be weared whenever driving a motorcycle, it's for the benefit of the driver and even the backrider. It should be foolowed because it has laws, to which is a road safety requirement. Here in the Philippines, more people are dying because of driving irresponsibly, they don't wear any helmets and are always hungry for the feel of the rush. In which most cases results to fatality and if not, might cause a life-threatening injury to an individual..

definately!! a motor cyclist isnt as secure as a person driving a car! there is nothing protecting his head if he / she accidently falls!! i dont understand why most motorcyclists dont wear helmets, its for their own safety after all!

Ofcourse. Helmet is an essential part of the bike rider. I think the people should be punished strictly and not be allowed to ride bike without helmet. It really a protector of our precious life.

The helmet laws are no different than the seat belt laws and the reason behind both is to save more laws. People who ride without helmets are very stupid people who expect society to pick up the tab for their stupidity.
