HELMETS: Make them optional for organ donors

Riding a motorcycle without a helmet can actually save lives. My father has been alive the last 15 years because he received a new heart from a helmetless rider.

Maybe riding without a helmet should be optional if the rider has signed up as an organ donor. Since the helmet laws went into effect, there has been a significant drop in available organs.
