Amazing. At midnight tonight, Pensylvania becomes the 6th (?) state to repeal it's mandatory helmet law.
I'm of two minds on this one. On one hand, i'm against legislating common sense. You're on a bike, you should be wearing a helmet. And full gear. But that's just my opinion.
On the other hand, since it's obvious that there are people who only wear the gear they legally have to (as evidenced by the yutz who ran a stop sign turning onto 8th street in front of me the other day, laying rubber and riding with one hand (waving at me with the other), wearing shorts, wife-beater, and a full-face helmet), maybe the law *is* necessary to keep the idiots alive?
