Why should I care if another adult bicyclist is not wearing a helmet ?

Why is it my or anyones business what someone else is wearing ?

I dunno, I think it has something to do with global Warming and the hole in the ozone layer.

Same reason as why we care what others do in their bedrooms, what they put into their bodies, if they wear seatbelts or use cell phones when they drive...etc...etc...etc.

Because if they crash and are debilitated, the state will have to pay for their hospitalization / social security? Because if they crash and get their insurance to pay, everybody's premium goes up? Because if they crash and splatter their brains all over the street, someone else will have to clean it up? (cell phones only: ) Because if they get shocking news while driving they might kill someone who doesn't even own a cell phone?

For all the above reasons everyone better wear a helmet 24-7 no excuses or Stampertje's insurance premium might go up.

Your absolutely correct freedom is way too expensive.

Buckle up!

Personally, I only really care if someone is wearing a helmet if he/she is riding with me. Why? Cause when they crash (we all will sometime), I don't want to see what's inside their head. I don't want to have to explain to their wife and kids that he didn't care enough about them and himself to buy a $50 helmet. Besides, I don't want to ride with someone that stupid - maybe this dunce won't be sharp enough to point out road debris or potholes during their pull...
