I have mixed feelings on helmet laws. While a helmet DOES help prevent or lessen head injury... it also restricts peripheral vision and hearing, and for that reason can actually increase the chance of an accident.

Oh... one more thing: Loud pipes save lives!

The company that I worked for was on the up and up (well as much as para-military can be). It was not in South America or Mexico, and in the 80's their were no jobs (remember Carter)..so I took a job that I was trained for, the pay was pretty good..I only have a "few nightmares" every now and again..

It's been longer than that for me..
In fact I had to "get permission" to leave the US for 10 years after I got out..it has to do with relevance..I would hope that things that "I knew" would not be security issues 35 years later..

While I agree that helmet and seatbelt laws are annoying, you both don't realize that they don't really exist to protect you, they are really for protecting the one that hits you (or you if you hit someone else). Here is why:

You accidentally run a stop sign and t-bone someone that wasn't wearing a seatbelt and gets seriously injured. You are responsible for the crash and are liable for their injuries. But, if they had been wearing a seatbelt, they would have sustained only minor injuries and you wouldn't be on the hook for a multi-million dollar lawsuit.

Despite all the talk about such laws saving lives, it's all really about liability.

im a firm believer on the seat belt , i worked many crashes involving fatalities and if some of those victims were wearing their seat belts they could be very well much alive today. something so simple to use and people still refuse to wear it.
