I'm going to take a stab and say that its because they personify the douchebag stereotype that responsible riders try so hard to beat, but can't.

(2) "Department" means the Department of Public Safety.



TRC 661.002.

DEPARTMENT TO PRESCRIBE MINIMUM SAFETY STANDARDS FOR PROTECTIVE HEADGEAR.

(a) To provide for the safety and welfare of motorcycle operators and passengers, the department shall prescribe minimum safety standards for protective headgear used by motorcyclists in this state.

(b) The department may adopt any part or all of the American National Standards Institute's standards for protective headgear for vehicular users.

A peace officer may not arrest a person or issue a citation to a person for a violation of Subsection (a) or (b) if the person required to wear protective headgear is at least 21 years of age and presents evidence sufficient to show that the person required to wear protective headgear has successfully completed a motorcycle operator training and safety course or is covered by a health insurance plan as described by this subsection.

(d) The department shall issue a sticker to a person who:

(4) pays a fee of $5 for the sticker.

(f) A sticker issued by the department under Subsection (d) expires on the third anniversary of the date of issuance.

(h) An offense under this section is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not less than $10 or more than $50.
