Not only does it place undue burden and responsibility on the mountain staff, it allows people to "escape" their personal liability. Let's say, worst case, this bullshit passes. What the fuck is to stop some person from suing the resort if their loved one is hurt, etc. in an incident where they were not wearing a helmet when the "law" doesn't "allow" it...the monday AM quarterbacks love to suggest that a helmet would have prevented. So, now a floodgate can be opened in which liability, reasonable assumption of risk and MAKING YOUR OWN FUCKING CHOICES in life, gets to be passed along to the resort. So what now? At which point do we get to (1) make our own decisions and (2) be accountable for those decisions??? I do always wear a helmet, by personal choice. Yes, I think helmets are safe and I won't ride without one. But I do get pissed when the monday AM QBs decide to hold court and become the authority on shit they know fuckall about...I get more pissed every day when people tell me how to live my life ESPECIALLY the fucking government. Wear my shoes for a day...then you cut off your feet.
and btw...it should be more illegal that people are going hungry...how bout that??? fucking politicians...jump on any bandwagon they can to drum up bullshit publicity...attempting to rally the bully pulpit (only at the peril of recent victims and their survivors). meanwhile REAL fucking life goes on around them.
Every turn is a blessing.
