Yay, a helmet law thread!
Are helmets really that bad?
No, helmets are good. What's bad is this freedom of choice! Please, take it away, so we don't have to waste our time thinking and debating.
Except driving is not a right, it is a privilege. Because it is a privilege you do have to obey any regulations that come with that privilege.
By the way, let the government impose mandatory helmet and the next agenda will be mandatory air bags, seat belts, and a cage on your bike, because some statistic will prove it's safer. Better yet, just ban motorcycles, since driving is a privilege so we can all drive a cage and be safer.
The numbers are there showing no helmet use costs all of us more money due to increased injuries and deaths.
Yes, ban motorcycles I tell ya, and the insurance rates will go down. Ban driving too, and we can all go to the horse and buggy and the insurance rates will lower even more!
Or maybe a lockdown where nobody leaves their home will be the ultimate in roadway safety!
