In the event of a traffic collision, a helmet can mean the difference between walking away and being buried six feet under. Why should those involved in a traffic collision suffer further emotional distress all because of the absence of a simple helmet? Driving is not a right. Helmets and seat belts save lives.

Mr. Huge; How are you not making a straw-man argument? "The basic idea is to "win" an argument by leading attention away from the argument and to another topic." -- Wikipedia

The discussion is on motorcycle helmet laws. Not whether or not people should ride motorcycles or play in the NFL. I DON'T want to prohibit dangerous activities. I never once made that statement. Furthermore, wearing offensive t-shirts does not lead to loss of life. The emotional distress caused through offensive t-shirts is not equivalent to emotional distress caused through death. As I stated before, that is not even in the same ball park.

Furthermore, you switch the argument around and state that helmet laws restrict personal freedoms. Show me. Then you switch the argument around to say I am arguing to prohibit the NFL. Show me where I said no one should play football. The only mention of the NFL I made is that the NFL does not allow players to play without helmets. That is not equivalent to me saying the NFL should be prohibited because they force their players to wear helmets.

You are making a straw-man argument. I am not making the argument against motorcycle riding..or the NFL. I support all modes of two wheel transportation. The NFL does not allow players to play without a helmet. Period. Again, the point is not against riding a motorcycle or partaking in dangerous sports. However, on public highways and roads, as driving is not a right, people are not free to ride as they please. If a motorcyclist dies in a car accident and his or her life could have been spared by simply wearing a helmet, then why should the surviving car driver(s) suffer the emotional distress that goes along with killing someone? I don't see it as inhibiting freedom in any way shape or form. Who is stopping you from riding?

Mr. Huge; It's a point for and not the only reason motorcyclists should wear helmets. That being said, harsh language and loud clothing is not even on the same level as a motorcyclist being killed because they refused to wear a helmet. We have seat belt laws for a reason. Helmet laws are no different.
