If you lose a loved one in a car accident, the most natural reaction in the world is to go through a period of grief or mourning. You never need to feel bad about this or assume that you have to move on quickly. Take the time to mourn properly. Turn to friends and relatives for emotional support. Do not be afraid to talk to medical professionals about what you're experiencing, if necessary.
It's fairly clear that motorcycle helmets can protect you during a crash. However, many riders point out that they need to be able to see and hear perfectly to avoid getting into an accident in the first place. Any restriction on their senses could make an accident more likely. As such, they don't always want to wear helmets, which they believe make it harder to hear traffic around them and to see what's happening on the road, especially in their peripheral vision.
