Spokesman-Review Letter to the Editor
Helmets About Money
We don’t need government to tell us we must wear a helmet to ride a bike, skateboard or anything with wheels. We can decide for ourselves.
It’s just another way for them to write tickets for more revenue. If they want more revenue, they can make a law for pedestrians, people in walkers and wheelchairs to wear helmets.
If you get a traffic ticket, you now can go to court and pay more money to have the ticket go from a moving violation to a non-moving violation. It’s not about safety; it’s about money.
Agree or disagree? Keep in mind the countywide bike helmet initiative is proposed by the Spokane Regional Health District, not County Commissioners.
