The moped death from auto argument is very similar, yet the helmet part is neglected. It automatically becomes the moped driver's fault for driving on roads. Which are, you know, obviously made only for cars. Those drunks shouldn't be on the road.

Glad you wrote this.

I certainly agree that the helmet use or lack thereof is monumentally less important than underlying fault for the accident and should receive a commensurate amount of media coverage.

My sense is that the helmet status of the victim should only be mentioned when it is relevant to explain the extent of injuries, which is the only justifiable use of the information. If it's clear that the helmet wouldn't have helped, then it should not be mentioned. Even if it was relevant, I'd place it in a middle 'graph, certainly not up top.

On a bit of a tangent here, but at least in Georgia, if you're involved in an auto accident, and there's a lawsuit, the defendant is not allowed to tell the jury that the plaintiff wasn't wearing a seatbelt. I don't think there's a similar prohibition of mentioning that a cyclist wasn't wearing a helmet, but I could be wrong.

Bill fans should especially cherish every game the team victory. The team's most famous players when the number of Simpson, he is scoring the AFC in 1975 and 1973 the annual MVP, while the other players that Thurman - Thomas, in 1991, the year he was MVP and best offensive player. Although Bill's defense rotten miserable, but the team of Bruce - Smith and bais - Bob was the best defensive player three times the annual election, in which Bruce - Smith in 1990 and was elected twice in 1996.
