Wearing a helmet
To The Editor:
In response to Mr. Gary Cotshott’s letter on July 17.
Motorcycles are inherently more dangerous than enclosed vehicles because the operator is exposed. To not properly manage that risk is childish and self-centered thinking. Mr. Cotshott says not wearing a helmet “affects no one other than the rider.” This is disingenuous. When everything goes bad and you’re down on the ground severely injured, tell me now about not affecting other people. What about the EMTs and the doctors who are going to try to save you? What about the people who love you? No one lives in isolation. When you get hurt, it also affects me.
