Much heat; No light

...the hospital lost about $1 million over six years on motorcyclists who are injured while not wearing helmets and can't pay their medical bills.

So?? Compared to what? How many are wearing helmets now compared to six years ago?

...statistics show that fatal accidents involving motorcycles haven't changed since the repeal of the state's mandatory helmet law in 1997.

Translation: Accidents that were fatal in 1997 were still fatal in 2003. Big news.

Again, how has helmet useage changed in 6 years? If it's increasing without the law you don't need the law; if it's decreasing then maybe you do.

What crummy reporting and legislation!

Many of these posts are painting any and all regulation as bad. That's just not so as you have just admitted.



Let's take one regulation at a time.



In this Post we're talking about a particularly stupid legislative process with equally invalid arguments on both sides of the question. I argue that this example doesn't support the thesis that all regulation or all legislation is bad.
