To the Journal editor:
Michigan's new helmet law allows people to ride a motorcycle without a helmet if they have two years of motorcycle riding experience or pass a safety course and if they are over 21 and if they have $20,000 of medical insurance.
It's too bad that this law did not consider the cost in human lives and the devastation of families and friends left behind to deal with the death or the horrendous impact of catastrophic injuries suffered by the rider, who did not wear a helmet.
If you ride a motorcycle and have people who depend on you and care about you please wear a helmet.
