It’s kinda funny. ALL of the stuff that Bloomberg wants to make the law are actually things a reasonable person might choose to do. But only the central planners and nanny state make it a law.
This applies to seat belts and helmets, btw.
The big and obvious difference is that the cost of stupidity is incorporated into the insurance rates that all motorists/motorcyclists pay and as a result, smart drivers who would wear seatbelts/helmets without a mandate pay for the increased injuries and deaths of those people who are too stupid to help themselves.
but old bloomie does not practice what he preaches. there for has no creditability in the public’s eye, except for the ubber health nut cakes.
There are many people who could not walk up 15+ flights of stairs. You have heart patients, wheel chair bound, MS, MD, ALS any number of auto immune patients, and bad backs to contend with. Apparently mr nanny is in perfect health.
I made the decision to wear a seatbelt on my own before there was a law....and that’s the way it should be.
I make the decision. NO LAW.
