YellowJeep: 3. I ride ATV's in the woods and do not wear a helmet.
Of all places TO WEAR A HELMET, you choose to not.
Are Trees and Rocks soft??
HiHood: I used to think seat belts were restrictive too. Until I started wearing them. I had an incident were I was convinced before seat belt laws went into effect that they do more good than harm. Now I feel uncomfortable without one and will even retrofit my Willys with them too.
I've read about and heard from MANY PEOPLE that have retrofitted their 60s and earlier vehicles with seatbelts where some People have installed 5 point belts and some people have added Rollbars.
Some vehicles were not designed with seatbelts until the 60s and those owners have the choice whether to install them since by design of vehicle, no owner is forced to acquiesce/be subjugated to/by any seatbelt law.
I believe for those that Ride Motorcycles, it is THEIR CHOICE to or not wear Helmets.
It is truly stupid to require seatbelt use in cars but have arbitrary laws regarding Helmet use on Motorcycles.
It's either FOR ALL or FOR NONE.
--I STEADFASTLY REFUSE to wear helmets and padding when riding Bicycles, Skateboards, Roller Skates, Ice Skates--We didn't have that crap until the 80s and WE survived--
