In California, BIG BROTHER is alive and well. Since our state legislature can't agree on things like budgets, welfare, and schools, they love passing 'personal protection legislation' to keep all of us safe from ourselves. Seatbelt laws, helmet laws, bicycle safety laws, smoking laws.... you name it. I usually wear a helmet, a DOT approved one. Hell, if you have to wear a lid, might as well do some good. When we go to the Arizona house I have been known to loose the lid for a little wind in the hair. You have to carry one with you, a few miles west and we are back in Cal, few east and hello Nevada, both helmet states.

My opinion, Government has no business in my business. If I don't want to wear a helmet or seat belt, that is between me and the insurance companies.
