40. As you know there are two ways of looking at that
I have a nephew who just survived a motorcycle accident. He sailed 15 feet over a van that pulled out in front of him and landed on the pavement. Fortunately it was a very good helmet, but the digs and scrapes on it now make me shudder. He has a broken leg, but would have been dead or severely brain injured without the helmet. He is just 18 and may not have worn a helmet without that law.

My brother and sister-in-law have traveled extensively through the U.S. and Canada on their bike, and he says it's more dangerous out there in the past two years than ever. People in vehicles are not paying attention when they drive anymore.
