I keep reading about all the new laws legislators are trying to enforce on the automobile drivers of Maine. It's very nice of them to be concerned. I'm sure they have their reasons to believe that my car should be clear of snow, and my headlights should be on, while I am seat belted in my car with air bags all around me and surrounded by all that metal.
My question is: When are they going to get around to caring as much about the motorcycle citizens of Maine?
Sure, they have to drive with their headlights on, but they are not required to protect their bodies in any way.
Maybe every rider should be required to wear leather pants and jackets and a helmet.
Why is my life more important in my car with all my protection and theirs doesn't mean enough to enforce that they even protect their heads?
Can anyone answer that?
