this motion is so vague. it is like 'rape should be legal, if somebody gets raped it's their fault'm
Well, I guess if the police have to wash your brains off the floor then it's no longer just your problem. Then again, if you got hit that hard I'm not sure you'd survive anyways. I believe it should be a personal freedom to do so if over 18.
I could see the law going either way though, as the medical system then has to deal with potential injuries
yes, but surely there could be a law for under 18s then. Adults should be able to understand. If they care more about appearance, that's their problem.
Helmet laws would be useful to protect people, and to prevent the medical system from being taxed by stupidity. They also make sure that young people and children have positive examples so that children would learn to always wear a helmet. The same debate happened when they were arguing about making seat belts mandatory. People complained about the inconvenience, and argued that the government shouldn't force people to do something they didn't want to. Bike helmets save lives.
