I studied mechanical engineering and have followed auto safety for forty years, working in the auto body business and later passenger rail car construction. I am designing body shells for scooters and bikes to minimize air drag and injury. With five children on the road I take this very seriously. In most states a tricycle vehicle is to be registered a motorcycle. We can contact our state legislators to change the laws for light vehicles so that trikes that meet federal roll over standards be exempt from helmet use. Lawsuits are for recovering damages for negligent behavior such as knowingly leaving off gas tank shields or not recalling ignition switches known to fail. There is plenty we can do to make sure family members and friends are well informed about vehicle safety. I have lost friends in car and truck crashes.
