To the Editor,

As a Senior Citizen, I see so many people speeding down the road on their motorcycles without any head covering. That concerns me a great deal and I wonder how people can be so careless in caring for that very important part of the body.

I was recently purchasing gas at a local gas station and a middle aged couple came in on their motorcycle and both wearing helmets. I walked over to the wife and congratulated them for wearing the helmets.

Her response was: "We feel that we owe that to our children."

Sincerely, 

Elmer Veldhuizen
