Why the heck didn't I need a dang bicycle helmet when I was a kid, yet my parents never got accused of child neglect for not making me wear them?? The amount of laws is ridiculous. It's all about the government taking away our parental rights and stepping in to parent our children for us

I have to chuckle when I see the ad on TV from DirecTV on the kid riding his bike without a helmet. The father calls out to his son who isn't wearing a helmet and does the usual speech along the lines of "haven't I told you to use a helmet when riding your bike, you could get hurt if you fall", then he proceeds to tell his kid to climb the ladder to the top of the house and take down the DirecTV dish. The kid procceds to look up at the roof and then looks at his bike. He has to be wondering, if he has to ride a bike with a helmet, but no helmet to climb on top of the house! How confusing can that be!
The amount of laws is ridiculous.
And we have our friendly neighborhood attorneys to thank for them.
Until tort reform becomes a reality, the number of laws will continue to increase.
