But I have been wondering since I have heard about this more here recently.
Motorcycle accidents and helmets.
Here's the thing... Why did they lift the helmet law?? I have know a few people that have lost their lives in accidents and they weren't wearing a helmet. I just don't get it... who decides that something like that is ok?? To me it's kind of rediculous because it seems that it's more important to keep that part of your body protected in an accident.
I know that the risk is higher for cyclists, but what I REALLY don't get is, if they don't have to wear a helmet... why do motorists have to wear a seat belt? Isn't that basically the same thing? I know either way if it's bad enough someone can lose their life, but the people that make up these laws are pretty ignorant I think.
I know what it boils down to is money. They can make more money off of giving tickets for no seatbelts than they can for no helmets. But I really think that's a stupid law.
Am I wrong?? Your thoughts...
