A hug is duct tape for the soul.

 
A report by the National Highway Traffic Administration entitled Evaluation of the repeal of the all-rider motorcycle helmet law in Florida.
reviews the crash reports after the repeal of the mandatory motorcycle helmet law . The report indicates that motorcycle fatalities have increased 81% when comparing 2001-2003 fatalities (after the repeal) than in years previous (1997-1999).

The report also showed that head injury admissions to the hospital increased by 82% in Florida due to motorcycle crashes. Before the repeal of the helmet law, the average annual cost of head injury treatment in hospitals has increased anywhere between $10,000.00 to $45,600.00 per person.

There is not much to think about here. Strapping on a helmet can save your life, $45,000. 00 in hospital fees and a life forever changed by a head injury.
