lol, this was an interesting article. I saw a pic of a guy using a paint bucket as helmet once, all in the name of using a helmet.
Like "my world" said, the safety of being on an okada is not fully guaranteed, and I understand my fellow naija ladies who will worry more about appearance of the helmet than their safety, but helmet can reduce injuries.
For yankee, no one would raise the issue of how they look in relation to wearing helmet 'cos police will just stamp you with tickets for not wearing helmet. you can raise the issue of your appearance with the judge in court. If the law of wearing helmet is fully endorsed and enforced, with time, it will become part of fashion and people wont mind how they look with the helmet

Well, a friend of mine has this big and trendy bag and her cute crash helmet (its really cute o) can fit snuggly into it,so i guess that's one way to solve the style issue...lol, anyways safety does come b4 style...wats style witout life huh?...personaly, i think if you dont like the new law, avoid okada's as best u can but if you have to take em, obey the rules

Thanks guys for ll your comments.
We all do have choice(s), ride on bike,use Helmet or find your way in car..cabs and be stuck in traffic. Sometimes, is not such a big deal, as long as I get to my destination safely and on time.( you can always use your shower cap,napkin or handkerchief on your head before putting the Helmet on our head or get your personal helmet..lol)

And do you know one funny thing, in Cotonou, Bike is like their major transportation, you will see almost everybody riding on one, even young ladies and the most funny day to see people on bike is on Sunday when they are going to church. you will see loads of women with different gele(s)..Lol
Anyway here is saying a special thanks to ExskoolNerd.. She is the passenger in tht picture.
