Adults won’t need to wear helmets while riding electric scooters on city streets, thanks to a bill Gov. Jerry Brown signed on Wednesday.The proposal, Assembly Bill 2989 from Assemblyman Heath Flora, R-Ripon, with support from Bird, one of the state’s leading e-scooter rental companies, also permits scooters to be on streets with a speed limit up to 35 mph. Current law bans scooters on streets with speed limits above 25 mph.Law does into effect Jan 1.
Have american adults gotten to the point where they can't even decide for themselves what is in their best interests? They need govt. intervention to force them to wear a helmet? This generation of adults is the most "highly educated" group in the history of the usa, yet there are people arguing that they need the govt to control their decision making? What a frigging joke..

If you crash a 80 MPH, I don't think a helmet is really going to matter.
