Notice the reporter doing a report while riding in traffic? That's certainly an interesting bit of hypocrisy in the broader safety context, isn't it?

Goody linky, thanks

i think insurance companies should make it manditory to wear helmets. that why when some guy not wearing one crashes they dont have to pay and maybe make rates for helmet wearing riders a little more reasonable.
