This law making helmet wear compulsory for motorcyclists has been viewed by many to be a breach of human rights from the day it was implimented. No proof has ever been produced that this law was necessary, as most motorcyclists would wear a helmet by choice anyway. All it does is criminalise a minority who would make a conscious decision as an adult that the journey they embark on has a minimal chance of them being in a situation where their head is likely to come into contact  with something solid.

Why is this idea important?

Repeal of this law would show the world that this country is committed to restoring freedom to it's citizens, rather than sliding into the nanny-like, cotton wool-protected state that removes all risk from human endeavour, which began with the implimenting of this law in 1973!
