    New York's Governor Cuomo considers helmet mandates for car drivers

    New York's Governor Cuomo considers helmet mandates for car drivers

    He wants data? We've got data. And if it saves just one life.....
    Recently Gersh Kuntzman of Streetsblog New York asked Governor Andrew Cuomo "if he might consider helmet mandates for car drivers, given that vast numbers of car drivers who in fatal crashes die as a result of head trauma, as opposed to bicyclists, who are often killed in ways that would render a helmet useless."
    Im thinking, the governor said after a long pause. I dont know enough. Id like to see the data.
    Helmets for drivers has been a topic on TreeHugger for a while; I wondered in an earlier post:
    We know that more people get traumatic brain injuries in cars than anywhere else. And it is not just because more people drive; we know that the rate of injury and death per million hours traveled is actually higher for drivers than it is for cyclists. So why dont drivers have to wear helmets?

    I have a thought on this.

    While Cuomo pushes for this idea I would like every Erie County Democratic town board member to wear a helmet for every town board meeting.
