Motorcycles and Common Sense Safety

The recent motorcycle accident involving Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback Ben Roethlisberger highlights the necessity of bikers to wear helmets. It’s incomprehensible to me why a professional athlete who wears a helmet on the football field would neglect to wear one when he climbs on his motorcycle. While bikers can’t avoid all accidents, the use of basic safety equipment such as helmets should be a no brainer.
