Motorcycle Article
o Many states in the Us don’t have laws the require motorcyclists to wear
o Freedom was a key theme: Is it the motorcyclists choice or the
government’s choice to wear helmets?
o Canadians don’t really have a choice (despite some religions)
o Differences between Canada and the states and how the death rates have
increased because of the different cultures
o Becomes a danger for everyone (should we make decisions for an
individual or for the population as a whole?)
o When you are allowing people to have a choice (to wear a helmet or not)
it influences others to not wear a helmet, which puts them in danger.

ignorant of the reason as to why the laws were put in place (to lower the
amount of injuries)
