They need to repeal the seatbelt law while they re at it
Leave it to Shaggy to come up with an apples to bananas comparison like that...
Seatbelts and airbags SAVE LIVES. You drive around in your car, with it's crumple zones, with it's collapsible steering column, with it's padded interior surfaces, and all of the other technology like anti-lock brakes, traction control, lane-change warnings, and ALL of it is there to keep you safe in an accident. Most of it is mandated by law, for safety.
You hop on your motorcycle, put on your helmet because the law says you have to, and what are you protected against? You can ride shirtless, in shorts and flip flops, and that's ok as long as you have a helmet on. To ride or not to ride a motorcycle is a decision you make KNOWING it's dangerous, knowing there isn't anything to protect you, knowing that, helmet or no helmet, you're just as likely to die if a teenager texting on her phone or grandma distracted while driving her Town Car runs you over. Wearing or not wearing a brain bucket ought to be another choice you make, just like wearing or not wearing an armored leather or textile jacket, pants, gloves and boots is a choice.
