    I agree the irony is thought provoking... But does the fact that he made a conscious decision to take risk over safety, and having it cost him his life, prove or disprove the validity of his position..?

    It should be a choice to wear a helmet, not a law.

    I second that. Even though I wear my helmet about 95% of the time, the 5% when I don't is my choice.

    Indeed. Anyway, it should be a personal choice (darwin at work) but its one of those laws that wouldnt really bother me.

    I wonder how many bike wrecks involving a no-helmet cranial injury accrue actuarially excessive medical costs?

    In other words, how many end up on someone else's financial plate?
    Ranked No. #1 in initial quality

    Idiots, simply by being idiots, seem capable of achieving randomly bad things that are beyond the imaginings of sensible people.

    That is precisely the reason for helmet and safety belt laws... Follow the money.

    If I hit you and injure you, my insurance has to pay... If you are injured worse or killed because of your choice not to wear a seat belt or helmet it opens them to higher liability.

    The general public would not accept laws limiting their libel rights if they made the choice, and governments aren't going to miss another opportunity to use law enforcement as a source of revenue...
