Letter: Helmets no panacea


RE: Helmet survey. It is wrong thinking to believe that just forcing helmets on motorcycle riders will solve the rider injury problem. I wear a helmet, but the issue is driver distraction, which is getting worse, not better. EG: Drive Interstate 17 every week or so and you will always see guard rail damage in new areas. This often takes place on straight sections of road. The cause is surely distraction. Until the law forces people to take driving seriously, there will be unnecessary injured and killed motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians.
