I have been wearing a helmet for the last 35 years or so while riding a two-wheeler. And for the last 20 years, My PK-style helmet has saved me on a number of occasions. Wearing helmets for both the driver and the pillion-rider should be compulsory on the pattern of seat belt for car drivers.
I rode on my brothers skateboard once and once I fell off, I opened my head and blood started gushing out and I blacked out and next thing I know, I was in the hospital getting staples or stitches. So, that's why I agree with the people who said yes.
In 2010, I rode my brothers skateboard and when I fell and landed on my head, I started crying while blood started gushing out and my mom was mad at my brother but I told my mom that it was my fault. So, that's why I disagree with the people who said no.
Most people that don't where helmets are ether dumb,think thare to cool for a helmet or some people complain they are uncomfortable.I think that most people that crash and are whereing helmets are saved from major injuries.I'm doing a persuasive writing peace on this and have done a lot of research on this topic and agree fully.
I believe that bike and skateboarding helmets should be made compulsory. I think it is important to instill in kids early on the importance of wearing helmets. Helmets can prevent death and brain injury. If helmets were made compulsory there would be a lot fewer lives lost. It would not be a battle for parents to make their kids wear helmets--it would be a requirement.
Our society is very interested in appearances. People often forgo a helmet in the interest of looking better. However, helmets save lives. Wearing a helmet when riding a bike or a skateboard should be made compulsory in the same way that seat belts were made compulsory. The safety of human life should be put at the highest priority in our society.
Wearing a helmet is too uncomfortable . People just don't understand what is happening around them just because of helmet sometimes helmet disable is to hear the sound of horn !!! Wearing a helmet should be optional whatever the case is maybe bike skating etc.. No one should be forced by law to wear a helmet
They don't protect kids form concussions. It also should be a choice. They do help but don't. Its just hurting people more and more per day. Do you want to se a lot of people with concussions. I don' want to see people hurt. It should not be a crime to NOBODY!!!
The choice whether to wear a helmet or not should absolutely be up to the person riding the bike or skateboard, motorcycle, snowboard or whatever. Allowing the government to take our choices like this away is a very slippery slope and for some reason a lot of people don't see it happening. They hide behind "the good of society". I am an adult. I don't need protection from myself and I will make my own decisions. That shouldn't be a crime.
