So in the event of evasive manuavers you will have a better chance of controlling your car/truck....Do you have your "fvcking forklift" out in public on city streets

And as far as your passangers...more government in our lives as CDILL35 said.

I guess you didn't read this part

A helmet is only designed to reduce the impact of your head and some other object.


You are right about losing control of your bike if you are knocked off by that June bug in the forhead at 65mph, or that piece of gravel in the eye so you can't see.....yes you are right! But a 400-600lb bike does not create anywhere close to the havac or destruction of a 4000lb car or forbid a 80,000lb road crane.

I'm just saying. Seatbelts are to keep people, drivers OR passengers, from being ejected from their vehicles. If THE purpose of seatbelts was to keep you in control of the vehicle, passengers wouldn't have them.

I'd guess that in most situations in which your seatbelt is the only thing keeping you inside the vehicle, you don't have much choice in where the vehicles going.

This is a stupid argument. But your side of it is stupider!

Why don't you just put seat belts on bikes and make the cagers wear helmets....But my side is stupider...Is that why most city buses and school buses only have a seat belt for the driver?

They don't need helmets. The seatbelts are keeping all of them in the car.

Why stop at the MSF, helmet and jacket? If you're going to mandate safety might as well go the whole 9 yards. In addition to that, lets mandate leather pants, over the calf boots, leather gloves. Let's put rev limiters in all bikes so they cannot exceed 99mph. All motorcycle gear needs to be orange and yellow. After all, it has been proven that high visibility saves lives. This is a mandate for ALL motorcycle riders, not just sports bike riders.

And while your at it, since you're so gung ho to encroach upon my rights, my freedoms, let's start taking yours away. Effective immediately, $250 fine for anyone caught eating french fries. They're bad for your health. Tobacco and alcohol should be banned, they have also been proven to be bad for your health. Loud music? A thing of the past, since it has been proven to cause hearing loss. No talking, eating or drinking while operating a motor vehicle. It has been proven that any distraction increases the risk of an accident. Thinking about having unprotected ? Get ready to go to jail since it has been proven that unprotected increases the chances of STDs.

FKNA... I would be happy to support all your ideas except the fries.. that is just WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'd be perfectly happy to roll at 99 mph or less, pretty much do anyhow.

I support an affirmative action law regarding cell phone usage in moving vehicles.. if you see someone yapping on the phone while driving, it should be legal to just shoot them and end all our misery.

Same law applies to those morons rolling along in the left lane below the speed limit. A law was passed in Texas stating that it is for passing only, so GTF outta the way!

One of the biggest problems in our fair state is that they will give a license to just about anyone. Even if they cannot read and write the language on the road signs....

I agree with this view completely ^^^

Honestly it couldn't be more true people are going to be people either way. You can't honestly expect everyone who rides a bike to think with the brain that they do or dont have. I say let the idiots eliminate themselves so the streets will get safer for the people with enough intelligence (sp?) to wear the gear and have the proper coverage etc, etc.
