Time to insist on reasonable requirements for
By: Chris Elliot Archives
"Just as Rock Hudson’s death brought the AIDS
epidemic to the forefront of American
consciousness, Ben Roethlisberger’s motorcycle
accident without a helmet has brought brain
buckets back into the pop topic tent. The
subject is of particular relevance in New
Hampshire, as we are one of four states that has
no helmet law.
When speaking of motorcycle helmets “Live Free
or Die” says it all, though to substitute one
conjunction for another, “Live Free and Die”
might be more appropriate, as 10 motorcycle
riders were killed in New Hampshire this week.
Most of them were not wearing helmets.
Bike Week, the New Hampshire Lakes Region’s
annual celebration of motorcycle culture, just
wrapped up its bloodiest season in recent
memory, but not by much. Three died last year in
the Loudon area over Bike Week, and nine died in
2004. New Hampshire may have to look again at
whether the insurance lobby has a point in
pushing for a helmet law in New Hampshire."
