If you live in PA and would like to write the Honorable Gov. Ed Rendell just go to: http://www.governor.state.pa.us/ (copy/paste people) and you will find the link to contact him.



BTW, IÂ’ve never understood the public burden argument when used to oppose helmet choice laws. Of the riders I know who choose to go lidless all of them have great health care as well as long term disability coverage. How would I, if critically injured in a motorcycle accident or auto accident for that matter, cost this "society" a single penny?

I wrote Bill Pasen, who I believe is the Senator there. I found his name on a site telling people to contact him to kill the bill. I wrote him in support, even though I am not from PA.

Would you post either his email or the link where you found it? I couldn't find any listings for him with Google.



Thanks

Not to say I support this argument, but to answer your question about how you would "cost this 'society' a single penny" the argument goes as follows:

The insurance you speak of is generally paid for by employers. If claims go up, then rates go up. If the employer is a producer of consumer goods then they will pass the increased cost onto the consumer ("society") and if the employer is the government then they will pass the cost onto the taxpayer ("society") etc.

As for my opinion on helmet laws, put them on the ballot and I will vote against them or to have them repealed. However, I myself wear a helmet 99.9% of the time so these laws are of little consequence to me and there are plenty of other laws over which I am much more concerned. I'll tilt at my windmills and you anti-helmet law folks can tilt at yours.
