Hey - good luck with that. I figure, being in Texas, you may manage one, perhaps two before someone shoots back.

I doubt it would work like that (though I wish it would).

Some of the population would kill themselves off, but the majority (whom I'm guessing are both stupid AND generallly irresponsible, ie: no health or vehicle insurance, no savings, etc...) will hurt themselves just enough to require us normal folks to support them the remainder of their lives.

You're assuming laws requiring the public to pay for the health care of the stupid would remain in place...

I havent a problem with that either. Speed limits are largely unnecessary and provide no actual benefit other than increased revenue for the state.

Those who are going to speed (yes, I'm one of them) have no respect for the law requiring them to go slower and do it anyway.

I decide my speed by what is safe for the conditions. Why should I be artificially limited to 70mph on a straight level road with 100miles between exits on a clear day with little to no traffic? Is there something inherently unsafe about 150mph?

On the other hand, if it is rainy, dark and heavily congested on a twisty road marked with a minimum speed of 50mph, I may choose instead to move at 40mph because that is what I deem safe for the conditions.

What are you going to do? Make them hand over their drivers license? What if it's been revoked? Are you responsible in running a back ground check before handing over the keys?

Nope, post up a ride and I'll organize a squid ride heading from the opposite direction. I'll tell them to be sure and stay in their own lane as we pass as fast as our little bikes will carry us

You can be sued civilly. It's your property and you're responsible if you let an unlicensed person operate it.

Knock yourself out - my bike wont go that fast, and frankly, I'm not comfortable at those speeds on two wheels.

No disrespect to the rider, I hate to hear of any rider going down or losing their life, but the law proved to be necessary. Why do we need more laws?

I have a license to fly airplanes. I would fully expect anyone who doesn't have a license to not be able to handle flying an airplane. The law is there to prevent someone who doesn't know how, know the rules, etc. from trying to fly one. If you try anyway - good chance you're gonna get hurt. Natural selection.

Had this person followed the rules and taken the steps to get the license needed, he may in fact have been better prepared to deal with the circumstances that led to the crash... maybe. That being said - why do we need to further protect grown up adults from themselves??? Really?
I like your style! +1
