We get ticketed for not wearing our seatbelts- therefore I think its fair to expect bike riders to be required to wear a helmet.

“Are you kidding me right now?”

I know where your coming from mikki, trust me. That being said, the push for the helmet law is purely financial. The states finances, insurance companies finances, and yours and your families finances. Problem is if you go down, dont die and make yourself an invalid (veggie if you prefer), it costs millions. Therapy if your lucky, surgery and nursing home costs if your not lucky. Someone has to pay, if you cant the government, state or federal has to pick up the tab. That means tax payers and they dont like to pay for other peoples questionable rights. Dont let them kid you that they care, they dont. They just do not want to pay for it.
Me, well I just do not want to be in a wheel chair or be a veggie or not be able to support my family. Let alone being able to see my daughters grow. Ive been thru the windshield of my car at 50 mph or so and I wear my seat belt now too.

The law is there to save lives and dollars. Oh, look at me, I'm a big baby, I don't want to spell choice correctly and I don't want to be made to wear something that messes up my hair or that doesn't let hot chicks see my face and pony tail. Oh boo friggin hoo you whiney bastage. Go cry to someone else. The next time you get in a wreck without your helmet on I do hope you don't make it so I don't have to foot the bill just to have you rot in a hospital bed for the rest of your life, just like I shouldn't have to foot the bill to keep someone alive on death row for twenty years till the button is pressed to fry their brains. Waaaa to someone else you moron.
