Spokane Mulls Bike Helmet Law

Item: County considers bicycle helmet law: Panel to draft ordinance, plans public hearing/John Craig, SR

More Info: County commissioners agreed Tuesday to consider a bicycle helmet ordinance. Users of skateboards, roller skates and scooters also might be required to wear helmets in unincorporated portions of Spokane County. Commissioners plan to draft an ordinance and schedule a public hearing after receiving more information from the Spokane Regional Health District and the city of Spokane, which adopted a helmet law in 2004.

Question: Should bike helmets be required in Idaho, too?
