* City Wrestles With Whether Helmet Laws Make Spokane Safer.
Coeur d Alene, Idaho + Spokane, Wa. USA -- 04-01-2019
When the Spokane City Council loosened the citys helmet laws last week ahead of the return of shared
electric scooters, a man in a helmet stood at the podium and warned them of traumatic brain injury. A
few minutes later, a woman told them that studies have shown helmets to be of little use in most situations,
and added that requiring them erected barriers to a healthy, active life and made people less safe.
