Speaking on behalf of motorcyclists, I think we should be exempt from seatbelt laws. Lets face it, when you are cruising around on your motorbike; you are significantly more vulnerable than when you are inside a four-wheeled vehicle. From this perspective, seatbelt laws seem silly.
Sometimes it seems like the various forms of government all slip into the quagmire illusion that it’s their purpose to protect us – whether we like it or not. When we compare our endless slew of driving laws to other countries’ policies, it becomes easy to feel like we’re all being treated like children. Maybe that’s why I enjoy riding a motorcycle. It allows me to step out of the seatbelt corral. Don’t get me wrong, I do think that driving laws are necessary, I just draw the line when it comes to seatbelts. Oh, and by the way, your shoe laces are untied.
