Bike week Daytona begins today

in a related matter,

30% raise in motorcycle deaths in Florida from 2014 to 2015

Florida has the most motorcycle crash fatalities in the nation, 606 in 2015

motorcycles are only 3% of the registered vehicles, but are in 20% of the crashes

Someone polled bikers, and had 80% say they ride with a helmet. Then they looked out at the nearby road, street, highway or whatever, and counted that only 1/2 the bikers riding were wearing a helmet.

This clearly demonstrates that polls only get you the response of the people who will stand around and answer dumb questions. Bikers without helmets aren't as likely to answer pollsters.
