So Michigan recently passed a no helmet law making it legal (with certain requirements) to ride a motorcycle without a helmet.  Today I saw several morons taking advantage of this STUPID law.  Are they ASKING to be killed?  It's like running out in traffic.  They are just asking for it if they get into an accident.  It is absolutely idiotic to ride a motorcycle without a helmet.  My aunt was an advocate for the no helmet law until she got into a motorcycle accident 2 years ago and the only thing that saved her life was the helmet she was wearing on her head.  She has plates and screws all over her body because of the accident.  These idiots are going to end up maimed or dead. 


End rant.

 Sometimes, you just can't save people from their own stupidity.

there was a guy somewhere last year protesting the helmet law during it he got in an accident and died....if he had a helmet he would have lived.

It shouldn't be a law. It should be a choice. Adults do that.

In mn its not required to wear a helmet either, scares the hell out of me that m dad refuses to wear one. He says if he gets into an accident he'd rather be gone than end up a vegetable

I personally believe that no adult should be told they have to wear seat belts or helmets, I also agree that it really takes an idiot to decide their head isn't important enough to cover. All it takes is one motorist, one tap on the brakes, one impatient person, one slow person, etc...and a life is over. 

their prerogative. Scares the hell out of me, too.

Wisconsin has never had a helmet law. So it's norm to see them without!

It should not be a choice.  It's against the law to ride in a car without a seatbelt.  It should be just as against the law to ride a motorcycle without a helmet.

Quoting JoshRachelsMAMA:

It shouldn't be a law. It should be a choice. Adults do that.

After they are splatter on the highway, they will wear their helmet next time. If there is a next time.
