Spotted this afternoon on Independence Avenue SW. What kind of freaking idiot do you have to be to take your bike for a spin and not wear a helmet?

If you’re interested, here’s DC’s Helmet Restrictions, Virginia’s Helmet Restrictions, and Maryland’s Helmet Restrictions.

Personally, I think if you want to bike without your helmet, you ought to leave a bond on file with the state to cover your entire medical bill when you get hit and become a vegetable.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
