Ben Roethlisberger, quarterback for the Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers, the one who got smacked up riding his motorcycle into a car that turned left in front of him, said Friday that he won't do any motorcycle safety announcements.

He wasn't wearing his helmet at the time, and suffered some facial injuries.
"I don't think that's my place. Some people feel that, you know, I probably should be doing that and being a big advocate for that. But for me, I'm going to let people make their own decisions ... So I don't think you'll see me doing any kind of billboards or advertisements."
Well good for him. That's exactly what bikers have been saying all along. It's up to each rider to decide. It's not that we as a society should ignore the dangers of riding, but that we should stress the importance of responsibility and the freedom of choice.
