IOWA PATCH POLL: Should Motorcyclists Be Required to Wear Helmets?
At least seven cyclists have been killed since March 16.
Last week, Patch reported on the death of Matthew Dunkel, a 40-year-old Marion resident who was killed while riding his motorcycle.
Dunkel was the seventh person killed in crashes involving motorcycles or mopeds since the middle of March.
Nobody is blaming Dunkel for the accident. But one of the stories on his death generated tons of comments on motorcycle safety, which made us wonder what readers think of an issue that has been around nearly as long as two-wheelers: Should motorcyclists be required to wear helmets?
Tell us your answer in this poll. And we'd love to hear your reasoning in the comments section below.
