Re: Michigan helmet law
I live in IL, which has never, as far as I know, had a helmet law. I always wear one and have nicked more than one, luckily with rocks, and collected any number of large bug hits, in split of the LT's excellent windshield.
And we have lots adverstisements for helmet wearing on the news every summer as the accidents pile up. Yes, it is an infringement on freedom, but so is having to pay for care for the injured who have no long term coverage.
Sad, but there is no free lunch out there.
