Despite predictions to the contrary, motorcycle fatalities have actually dropped by 7 percent since Detroit abandoned its helmet law and starting allowing cyclists to ride helmet-free, this according to proponents of the newfound freedom.
According to SantaMariaTimes.com, California motorcycle accident deaths dropped by 10 percent in 2010. Additionally, California motorcycle accident fatalities dropped to 394 in 2009 from 560 in 2008, the first decrease since 1998. Experts point to the California helmet law as a possible reason for fewer deaths.
