As of Wednesday there have been five fatalities associated with the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. This time last year there had only been one. Although South Dakota does not require the use of helmets, this increase has some bikers choosing to wear the protective headgear anyway. South Dakota and Minnesota both require helmets for bikers under the age of 18, while Iowa does not have any sort of helmet law. Nebraska is the only state in the upper Midwest that does require helmets for all riders.
