Mary E. Peters, who is in President Bush's Cabinet as the Transportation Secretary, wants motorcycle manufacturers to throw in free helmets, or free motorcycle safety training with the purchase of a new bike...
Secretary Peters said only 58 percent of riders wear helmets today, which is down 13 percent from just four years ago. She added that manufacturers could help reverse the trend by getting helmets into riders' hands and training them how to ride safely, noting that 700 motorcyclists would survive crashes every year if they wore helmets.
Ok let me understand this correctly. The reason why the other 42% of motorcycle riders that don't wear helmets is because they were too poor to afford one?

Well maybe. If you bought a Harley Davidson, you may not have any money left over to buy that $250.00 half-helmet with the HD logo on it.
