The US president is showing the indifferent attitude towards fighting against the coronavirus pandemic. As the situation of COVID-19 spread is worsening with every passing day, the internal battles in the Trump administration are taking new forms. And this is something that is deteriorating the image of the US president in the eyes of the public.

In the beginning phase of its fight against the coronavirus pandemic, the US government showed exemplary courage by taking strict actions required at that time. But now, the US leadership is not taking the situation seriously and it is leading to a rapid increase in the number of coronavirus cases in the country.

Moreover, the attempts to discredit Dr. Anthony Fauci are being made by the US administration. The internal battles going on inside the coronavirus team of the Trump administration are leaving a bad impression of the US President on the minds of the US citizens. And it is happening at the time when the presidential elections are a few months away.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Health and Human Services Department are openly fighting over the control of hospital data. Not just this, the Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Vice President Mike Pence are endorsing the full re-opening of schools by going against the CDC’s safety advice.

Such an indifferent approach of the Trump administration in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic is receiving criticism on various fronts. And it is also leading to a boost in the number of coronavirus cases. Currently, the total number of infections in the US has crossed the mark of 3.6 million and the death toll has reached over 1.4 lakhs.

In 2018, over 8 million on-road motorcycles were registered in the United States, nearly double the number registered in 2002. While motorcycles may have several advantages when compared to conventional automobiles, they have notable drawbacks as well. This includes an increased risk of a severe injury or fatality whenever an accident occurs. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NH nearly 5,000 motorcyclists died in fatal accidents in 2018. In addition to other safety measures, being aware of helmet laws across the United States may help prevent the likelihood of a fatal motorcycle accident.

Motorcycle Helmet Laws

According to the Governors Highway Safety Administration (GHSA), 47 states and the District of Columbia have some laws regarding the use of helmets while riding a motorcycle. Only 3 states, Illinois, Iowa, and New Hampshire, do not have laws requiring helmets while operating motorcycles.

bikes Many states that enact universal helmet laws require that motorcycle operators wear a helmet at all times while riding their vehicle. Some places that have universal helmet laws include California, New York, and the District of Columbia.

Alternatively, other states require helmet laws up until a specific age or requirement is met. An example of an age-restrictive law includes South Carolina, where helmets are required for riders under the age of 21. Other states, including Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Kentucky, have laws mandating a specific amount of experience in addition to age requirements before a motorcyclist may ride without a helmet.

The Benefits of Helmets While Riding

“Helmets could greatly reduce the severity of an injury or likelihood of a fatality occurring in the case of a motorcycle accident,” said Attorney Jim Hurley of Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers. “In some cases, a helmet can be the difference between minor injuries and death.”

According to NHTSA data, individuals operating a motorcycle without a helmet are around 3 times more likely to sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the event of an accident when compared to those who drive with a helmet. Additionally, unhelmeted riders are nearly 40 percent more likely to die in a motorcycle accident.

Similarly, a study released by the National Trauma Data Bank found that wearing a motorcycle helmet reduces the severity of an injury, the likelihood of a fatality occurring, and could even decrease the amount of medical treatment required. Over the course of seven years, the National trauma Data Bank found that helmet use may have saved as much as $32.5 million total in intensive care unit costs, translating into nearly $1,800 per patient.
