With NHTSA... WE Pay the Price!

Hold on to your seats! Here is an online walk through of NHTSA's new Pro-Helmet/Anti-Biker propaganda. The package includes a video that is packaged inside a very slick and expensive cardboard 4/C box that includes a 24 page booklet, a brochure and video in a 4/C sleeve. Make no mistake about it. This is a major PR and merchandising campaign that poses as being helpful to the community, when it smacks of only serving the Insurance Industry. The information goes way beyond what our government should be doing with our money and more importantly this package seriously undermines riding with or without a helmet altogether by repeatedly emphasizing that motorcycles are dangerous.

One death is one too many, but with only 2100 deaths a year, you have to wonder what is the motivation of this Federal Agency to spend so much time, money and effort to rally non-riders, legislators, the insurance industry and medical community against us.

Compared to all the other ways and with much larger numbers that people are injured, why is 2,100 deaths so important? Like most things... follow the money trail. This trail starts and stops with the insurance industry...

Below is the outer box that houses the video, a 24 page booklet and brochure. It's full 4/color, extensive, expensive and very very biased (see commentary).
