    For the second time - the cost you consider is to the individual, not the government, and it's not just in monetary terms. Banning motorcycles would be very very costly to motorcyclists.

    Then phase them out. Ban their production and sale. Eventually the old bikes will be replaced and their owners will have no alternative but nice safe cars or I believe "cages" as bike enthusasists call them.

    With this reasoning we may as well allow people to drink and drive. After all the right to hurting yourself trumps how you may hurt others, right?

    Nope. That is another retarded argument. I may not endanger others in some means which significantly increases dangers to them, such as DUI would make. Me wearing seat belt or a helmet, however, does NOT affect the welfare of others.

    Re: Seat Belt Laws

    I'm not for banning motorcycles just the law that requires adults to use seat belts. I don't even say eliminate seat belts but make them optional. You can still make them mandatory for children. It's not consistent to allow a form of transportation as dangerous as two wheelers though force restraints on the operator of a much safer vehicle. Preach and teach about them all they want but stop removing freedoms.

    Re: Seat Belt Laws

    If daddy/mommy government truly wants to save us from ourselves then they need to go farther.
    Why stop at seat belt statues? Letís get federal/state governments involved in everything that can cause unsafe driving and can cause accidents.
    I want statues against listening to the radio.
    I want statues against talking while driving.
    I was statues against eating/drinking while driving.
    I want moderating devices installed to watch everyone in the car to make sure they are following the new statues.
    We need more government involved!
