I don't believe that half of the regulations laws like seatbelt laws and helmet laws are truly to keep us safe, but to take our money when we don't behave like a trained elephant should respond.
Actually, it is the other way around. The laws significantly save muicipalities a lot of money.
The average accident involving and amdublance will run a local governmetn 50k when all is said adn done.
Sealtbelts do significantly drop the number of lethal and injuries. Saving a lot of money.

I would like to see a trend start where governments everywhere appoint a commission or something to sit down and revue all the laws and regulations, decide what makes sense and throw the rest out.
Oh No! Not another Government Commission! How about a Czar of Common Sense? This is Government your dealing with, they only know how to spend our money. The Government is what needs to be thrown out!
