It's obvious you have not seen demo's on what damage can be done to a human body just traveling at 30mph especially to babies, if you fly through the air at 30mph and hit a solid object and not a crash dummy it certainly hurts, can kill. But yes I agree stop the dangerous driving and the crazies who keep the foot down would certaily be a very good option. But it will never happen, however one can get into a crash if so and I was thrown through the air I would prefer to have my helmet on even if it was not the law to do so here. There is nothing wrong in having personal safety. To me it makes complete sense and I would not trust in god and have a baby passenger on my motor bike. I would always be carefull regards the safety of one I loved or any child. I know filipino's love their kids but this motorbike thing seemingly shows they are not thinking of the safety of their family and putting to much trust in God. Why carry a helmet around whilst driving and not wear it? That factor alone amuses me, especially when I see the helmet used as a shopping bag. Come on someone explain the logic of that?
