Well my opinion is that seatbelt laws were pushed by insurance companies. We all know that insurance companies do not like to pay out. People do get hurt and killed in accidents when they don't wear their seatbelt - everyone knows this. The percentage of bikers carrying medical on their insurance is probably very low and half of the bikers without helmets die in accidents. Even if it's not their fault, jurys will most likely blame the biker (for not wearing a helmet) if she/he is killed or hurt in an accident so the insurance companies aren't as worried about our helmets as they are seatbelts.

I personally think seatbelts (for licensed adults) should be optional and the current helmet law is adequate.

Personal responsiblity is the key word

Well, regardless of any helmet law, I'll always wear mine. This is why:
