The November 16, 2011 edition of Sun-Sentinel, a South Florida-based news publication, states that South Florida motorcycle riders are urged to wear helmet 10 years after the helmet law was repealed.

The article reports that head injuries remain the second-most common injuries requiring hospitalization for motorcyclists, with 29 percent of Florida's motorcycle crash deaths attributed to traumatic brain injuries.

While the personal injury insurance coverage requirement helps, the median hospital charge is five times the state's minimum $10,000 mandate. And worse, almost half - 49 percent - of those biker emergency room visits and hospital stays in 2009 weren't covered by insurance. This results in a cost shift that fell to other Floridians (many of whom don't own motorcycles), either in the form of higher taxes or increased insurance premiums.
