Bring back the helmet law

So says the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Iowa, Illinois and New Hampshire are the only states without helmet laws, even to protect their youngest residents. According to the Iowa Department of Transportation, at least one child under 14 and another 17 under the age of 24 have died in motorcycle crashes in the state since 2007.
And some legislators are getting wiggy about it because there was a "...recent spate of motorcycle accidents..."
