Helmets about money


We don’t need government to tell us we must wear a helmet to ride a bike, skateboard or anything with wheels. We can decide for ourselves.

It’s just another way for them to write tickets for more revenue. If they want more revenue, they can make a law for pedestrians, people in walkers and wheelchairs to wear helmets.

If you get a traffic ticket, you now can go to court and pay more money to have the ticket go from a moving violation to a non-moving violation.

It’s not about safety; it’s about money.
