If you hate the "cycling is dangerous" culture we live in, you would be against a law that quite clearly says that cycling is a dangerous activity.

The biggest threat to a cyclist is an irresponsible motorist, and helmets are no match for them. Helmets can help with mitigating s the simple falls children have, but do you honestly think prevention of bumps and bruises are reason enough to take away a parents rights to raise their child the way they see fit?]]>

Indoctrination or Just Law-Abiding?
BTW, I have never told my children that helmets are for protecting their heads. I think my son thinks they are just hats that you wear when riding a bike. My daughter is too young to know either way but hates her helmet. I DO think it's funny when people make kids wear helmets when the kids themselves are the riders and they are like circling in their own driveway or going back and forth on the sidewalk in front of their house. In this case, I wouldn't even think of pulling out the helmets unless my son asked (which he does sometimes -- because they are bike hats.) I only make them wear them when they are passengers on my bike, as I highly doubt law enforcement officers would care what they are wearing (as preschoolers) when they are riding 1 mph.]]>

indoctrination
Ensure a market for the future.

How in the world did we survive before manufactures convinced us we need their products? ]]>
