Motorcycle Safety Guide: Strong Support

A Rider, A Nurse

As a rider and a trauma nurse, I would always recommend that riders wear a helmet. I see so much death, loss, grief, and trauma from riders and the loved ones they leave behind because of motorcycle crashes. If laws are what work to get people to
wear a helmet, then we should have strong laws in place nationally.

protect the public.”
