Perhaps higher insurance premiums for those who do not wear helmets would be a better option....
Really?

That's why they get away with crap like this - because people like you say "We should fine that guy", or "Let's outlaw THAT activity". Eventually, they're gonna come for you, too.

People like me?

I did not say anything about fining anybody. I was commenting on the original post....

I don't make the laws....I just choose to be safe.

Yes, like you.

A "higher premium" to a certain group of people (simply because they do something that you don't like) is no different than a fine!

And, to some people, riding a motorcycle is unsafe. So, hiring premiums are justified, right?

It's really a sad affair with the nanny state that keeps expanding.

Maybe we should have a national twilight curfew? Lots of bad things happen at night you know. You'd be a lot safer just staying indoors and we could save lots of money on just about everything to do with crime, accidents, etc. Oh, by the way, we'll be over at 10AM on Thursday to put cameras inside your house to be sure you're not drinking too much soda pop, and we're going to put a remotely-monitored scale in your entry way so that we can monitor your weight, and smoke detectors too. We're also going to install these remotely monitored/controlled power meters to save you energy because you really don't need as much air conditioning as you think you do.

Georgia resident here. Did this pass? 2 comments. (1) When I bought my life insurance, they did not consider my bike a risky behavior. I just cant race it. They had a different opinion about the private jet I fly for a living.

(2) Are all the smokers, heavy drinkers and obese people charged more?

Are you a state employee? The proposed legislation only applied to state employees. I cant find anything in the legislation pages online which looks like this so I wonder if it got squashed.

Nevertheless, I do know of several municipalities around here who make city employees pay additional insurance fees if they smoke.

It's my opinion that The Land of Liberty must be fertilized by patriots using the blood of tyrants, liberals and terrorists.
