    Who else died as a result of him not wearing a helmet? What additional property damage did he cause?
    The man made a choice and paid for that choice with his life.
    It’s called personal responsibility.

    Extremely stupid to not be wearing a helmet but…this winding 2-lane country road is treacherous-I live where I have to drive on it every day. ABC news, come and do an expose of this road, which in addition to dump trucks, and now tractor trailers apparently, is our only access road for at least a dozen communities here, is falling apart and filled with dangerous “deadman’s” curves everywhere, filled with potholes and collapsed shoulders that overflow with water and cause black ice every winter. The miracle is that more people do not die on this road, a favorite with speeding cars and motorcycles, a recipe for disaster. and except for the occasional presence of already stretched to the limit state police, this is a lawless stretch of 2-lane country road. I only needed ti see a horribly violent t-bone accident here to drive on it like my life depends on it, which it does.

    Shows just how clueless (or corrupt..or both) our lawmakers are! You need…seatbelts, anti-lock brakes, stability control, 10 air bags, re-enforced roof pillars ( creating blind spots on newer cars), a backup camera to ride in a steel cage….but yet, no helmet to ride what is basically an engine with a seat! The logic is insane! People will cry about freedom and individual rights. OK..don’t people in cars have the same rights…NO!
