September 13, 2007 I appeared in court for a helmet
citation in Polk County. I patiently waited as we
were called in alphabetical order. When my case
was finally called the Assistant District Attorney
asked me if I had a helmet and asked to see it.
I showed her a "safety helmet" and she
told me it was not a helmet. However she immediately
dismissed my case. This took me by surprise. Upon
parting the Assistant District Attorney asked in
a somewhat worried tone if she would be seeing more
of me. I am not sure of the why or why not but the
state trooper spoke with the judge and other just
an hour before my ticket was tossed.
Quigley died two days after this ticket was dismissed.
If you would like to show your respects try to get
a ticket for riding without a helmet and fith it
in court. Two days after Quig's passing Roger's
helmet ticket in Henderson County was dismissed.
