This is a crucial issue, particularly given how TBI has often gone undiagnosed as well as misdiagnosed and thus mistreated in many cases and which, of course, only makes matters worse.

It is therefore ironic how, while "[s]tate lawmakers are working to develop policies dealing with TBI seek to prevent injuries from occurring, diagnose cases of TBI and to respond and rehabilitate TBI patients effectively", there are those in the Vermont including the Lt. Governor and state legislators who are asking whether Vermonters still support the state law requiring the use of motorcycle helmets.
