CA biking community divided over bill to make helmets mandatory

Senate Bill 192  introduced by State Senator Carol Liu (D-Pasadena) would require all California cyclists to wear a bike helmet.

Failure to do so would lead to a $25 fine. The new bill would make the Golden State the first in the nation to have such a requirement. Helmets have shown to save lives, but opponents to the bill worry that making it a law would deter people from biking.

Do you support making bike helmets mandatory for all cyclists?
