Helmet Nazi's and so it begins
 
I just saw this, and wondered what you guys think? Is this going to spread? I wear one most of the time, but I like it to be MY choice.
Minors at ski resorts in New Jersey required to wear helmets next winter under new law - ESPN

I like the idea but having the cops enforce it is a waste of resources IMO.

I don't have kids but I imagine a 16 year old wouldn't wear one if they didn't want to?

I'm not surprised, kinda thought it may have happened sooner. I always hear a helmet riding and it doesn't bug me at all, my choice. Funny thing is I grew up not wearing one riding bmx and mtb and hate having to now... but do. Go figure

Dumb. We do way too much in this country to fight the efforts of natural selection. You don't want to wear a seat belt? Fine. You don't want to wear a helmet? Great. Why should any of that be forced on us? Let natural selection run it's course!

I agree with this law. And I honestly don't understand people who don't wear them. Where I ride, the helmet-less people are the one looking weird.

I have yet to hear a valuable reason not to wear one. And about the "it's my choice" logic, I would compare it to wearing a seatbelt, which is mandatory almost everywhere...

IT's a freedom of choice that's being taken away. I rode in the mid to late 90's with a helmet I looked odd man out, dog ate the helmet went back to riding without one, got another helmet later on broke it, been helmetless now for a while, probably go back to one next season cause I"m sick of almost hitting my head on rocks. It's a choice and I understand that I could die from it but so be it.

But oh no the fucking fluffy bunny huggers need to make sure we're always safe. Yeah cool put a cop on the hill just what I want my tax dollars for. Fuck this god damn country I'm moving to that floating island of garbage and calling it angryastan and sit around floating up and down in waste cause it seems better than this shit hole country.
