My favorite argument against helmet law. The cost to society from head injuries in cars far surpasses that from motorcycle accidents. You're in a steel box with unyielding structures right by your noggin. Even requiring bicycle helmets in cars would save lives (and IQ) and money.
Of course, I'm called silly things for suggesting something as looney as wearing a helmet in a car. But race drivers do, and if you were in a head-on accident, would you refuse a trip back in a time machine to put on a helmet?
