I have a cage and an airbag to help protect me, that is so much more than when I am on my bike that riding in a car without a seatbelt feels pretty safe.

Anyways the irony is I get a ticket for no seatbelt from a cop on a bike. He is wearing is little half helmet and gloves (not leather BTW) with the fingers cut out.

We both crash who is going to get more ****ed up.

Yes I know its the law.
I totally agree. Did you tell the oinker that?

Actually, this is exactly why it is a law... and someone asked if it was insurance companies that wanted this passed and that is also correct.

They don't necessarily care if you die in the crash or not... they care on who has to pay to clean up the mess if your dumbarse didn't try to prevent yourself from becoming a splat on the taxpayers' freeway/road. This is why it is a law and not a choice because your decision to not wear one will affect more than just yourself if you die because you weren't wearing one during the crash.

Don't want to get into a society-type debate but most laws are there to protect the society at-large, not just individual people. They are just sometimes spun to sound like they are protecting you individually...
