Tennessee Motorcyclists Look to go Helmetless

TNReport has the story on the wave of support to revive the bill that would repeal the requirement for Tennesseans to wear helmets while riding a motorcycle.

But if we're doing this in the name of freedom, here's my question:

If a motorcyclist has the right to go without a helmet and splatter his brains all over the pavement, shouldn't those of us who prefer four wheels be allowed the choice of whether or not to wear a seatbelt?

It seems like the same argument. But I can guarantee that the State won't allow for the seatbelt requirement to lapse. Why? Because that is a common way that law enforcement can use to pull you over without actual probable cause so that they can search your vehicle for contraband.
