"So why don't we fine people that smoke?"

They do, it's called a sin tax. It's on alcohol too.

It amazes me how mankind managed to survive this long without big brother involved in every aspect, every second of our lives. The government does not pay for my car or my insurance. I think they have people who sit in a room and their only job is think of ways to infringe upon our freedoms so they can fine us. Lung Cancer from smoking kills many more people per year than people not wearing seat belts. Heart disease and Cirrhosis of the Liver from drinking kills more people per year than not wearing seat belts. The Government doesn't care about those people because they make millions in taxes off them. They wish MORE people would smoke and drink.

The insurance companies like the no helmet laws. Its cheaper for them to pay death benefits than it is to pay for a lifetime of heathcare.

Talk about defying logic...

Why are there seat belt laws yet motorcyclists are allowed to ride without a helmet?

I think seat belts and helmets are good ideas, but I think people should be allowed to make their own choices.

So why don't we fine people that smoke? How many deaths does that cause per month? Oh wait....the government makes money from the sale of tobacco! It used to be a free country!

At what point in time do we stop spending time and money trying to make this a perfect world. Five hundred deaths annually for not wearing seatbelts. Lets spend taxpayer money to harass the public trying to stop the idiots that dont wear seatbelts. Why bother, its called thinning the herd. Why do we think we have to save every last person at all expense?
