Motorcycle Helmet Laws Sacrifice Style For Safety
As a number of states prepare to reevaluate their motorcycle helmet laws, a rapidly growing rift has developed between riders and lawmakers. Many of the state governments in question are pushing for stricter helmet laws under the guise of promoting public safety. A few states are considering modifying laws to leave the decision up to the motorcycle operator. Riders claim that laws forcing them to wear helmets are infringing on their right to make their own decisions regarding personal safety. They understand the risks involved with driving a motorcycle and should be able to make a choice whether or not to strap on a helmet before they ride.
