While i agree with this kind of Sentiment overall(keep the f'ing govmnt out of my way) let me play devils advocate for a minute.

It's a well know fact that drivers who don't wear seatbelts and motorcyclers who don't wear helmets drive up overall insurance rates for everyone......how is that fair?

Also I'd imagine that if a resort has a helmet policy it would decrease their liability insurance rates and has a real impact food\drink\ticket prices.

As with most things in life there's allot of in and outs as the dude would say, do I give a fuck if anyone wears a helmet or not......no I could give a shit less.

I don't think most people without insurance don't have 30K sitting around for knee surgery

According to me this is a good rule because every year a number of teenager looses it life or get severe injury due to the absence of proper gear such as helmets. It all depends upon the the teenagers that what types of BMX helmets they choose.....

I'm not entirely sure about this, and if I'm wrong I'm sure someone will stomp my ignorant ass for it! But I think the issue that's bugging the veteran riders is the possibility that a law requiring "minors" to wear a brain bucket will be expanded to include all adults as well! (...BTW, a law like that will never shave a single penny off lift prices!! It's designed simply to put more profit in the "fatCats" pockets by once again limiting our freedom!!)

You guy's don't have an issue with minors being required, do you?
I ride helmet less on motorcycles when the law allows, but I would never let a kid get on the bike with me without one!!!

Minors, by definition aren't mature or experienced enough to understand the consequences of making that "Choice"!!

Now Adults?? Natural selection should rule!! It would rid the world of a lot of the dumbass and douchebag genes!
