Cull the heard.

Motorcycle crash-related injuries and deaths totaled $12 billion in one year, in medical care costs and productivity losses.

Actually, I was being facetious, Nemo. I agree with the helmet and seatbelt laws - they save lives!

Hang in there, bfra, I'm sure you're brilliant enough to know the outcome already. (I know, I know, I'm kidding; because I already know how ignorant you are on the issue).

Let's wait and see.

Blanket I know, I was just running with that line of thinking. The numbers shows that you and I understand the seriousness of the situation. I think people should have the right to uses or not uses helmets. Buckle up or not. They should consider how they will pay for the consequence of their action or lack of action by not buckling up or wearing a helmet.

In the end it is tax payers that will end up paying the bills.

I think the laws are good because it requires young drivers to do the prudent thing. Most people are pretty bold and stupid at 16.

Peer pressure to ride without a helmet, when the rest of the gang is doing so, is a very powerful thing...mandatory helmet use laws eliminate that part of the equation...still. I object to the nanny state aspect of helmet laws.

Mandatory beer drinking laws make a lot more sense.

I keep malt liquor tallboys in my saddlebags. Never know when the thirst will hit you.

This Helmet Law was in Detroit in the 1980's.
Group/ movement was called 'ABATE".
It's 2013...let the riders decide...implicit is in an accident and your paralyzed, you CANNOT sue the city, state,...anybody.

By: Loner on 4/5/13 at 12:17

Darge, as to your 1:01 post...Jug's obsession with balls could indicate latent homosexuality? Or a master of masturbatory manipulations? Jug prefers "tall boys" when the thirst hits...not that there's anything wrong with that...just sayin'.

I have been wordering the same Loner.

By: Loner on 4/5/13 at 12:28

As for helmet laws...it seems to me that wearing a crash helmet while driving or riding in a car or truck could also save many lives annually....race car drivers wear crash helmets and neck restraining devices for good reasons....some politicians and some special interest groups may try to get helmet laws for all who are traveling on the roadways, regardless of vehicle type....for the children, of course.....and to save the taxpayers a fortune.....and to make a fortune, if one is in the crash helmet business.

3-point harnesses and crash helmets....fire suits too...all could become mandatory?

I think that would be a bit too much Loner. There is one hayseed and an undeveloped jerk would have a hard time putting all that together. LOL

On the other hand, they are making the interior of cars more like a safety cage. These new interiors could fit into what you are talking about.

I got to go for now. I’ll check in later.

By: Jughead on 4/5/13 at 12:59

You dames are rather politically incorrect here today. Panties on inside out?

By: Jughead on 4/5/13 at 12:59

Balls.

One of the things that make communicating on an underclass dominated web site is the fact that it is an underclass dominated website.

By: bfra on 4/5/13 at 2:24

Raspy - Makes it WHAT? Your lowerclass thinking (that is below underclass) doesn't make sense!

By: dargent7 on 4/5/13 at 2:31

Jugless,
Posting "Balls" makes NO sense to anyone.
Except yourself.
Try another expression or just go away.

By: Captain Nemo on 4/5/13 at 2:50

Is that why you post here Raspy old boy. Just one of the lower class, except for Jugs you would be on the bottom. Much like you are in life. :)

By: Captain Nemo on 4/5/13 at 2:51

d7 Jugs stuffs toilet paper down his pants, for effects.

By: bfra on 4/5/13 at 3:00

Only thing Raspy is good for is some laughs!

By: Rasputin72 on 4/5/13 at 3:28

Bfra.....I am good for paying the free breakfast and free lunches and food stamps and subsidized housing for a quick guesstimate of at least 25 to 30 of your friends.

By: Captain Nemo on 4/5/13 at 3:37

If you had any status in life, you would not be on this site trying to make people think you are someone.

Please tell us just how many of our friends do you know, when you don't have a clue who we are. Remember I do know what you are.

By: Captain Nemo on 4/5/13 at 3:38

bfra you sure pushed his button. LOL

By: bfra on 4/5/13 at 3:49

Nemo - He really is up on all this FREE stuff. The ones that get all the FREE stuff are usually the ones that know so much about it.

By: yogiman on 4/5/13 at 3:58

You seem to think you're an expert on everything else, bfra, don't you know all the facts on your FREE stuff?

By: Captain Nemo on 4/5/13 at 9:26

A cheap dumb ass like you yogi should know all about Free Stuff.

You're apparently in training to understand what you're trying to post, dumba$$. But you're too dumb to understand it. Four posts and you still don't seen to understand your lack of intelligence?

I believe you need more intelligence but I'm afraid you simply don't have enough brain cells between your ears.
