Did you read the story?

Funny. As stated in a post for this story, it would not have helped at highway speed. Had he been able to slow to 30 mph maybe it would have made a difference. I don't use them myself, but it is up to me. Yes I have insurance.

Over 25 MPH

My thoughts and prayers to the family...

Over about 25 MPH a helmet only increases the likelihood of an open casket funeral....

*snort*

I've balled up at 100+, helmet made the difference.

By y'all's logic motorcycle racers are wasting their time.
