Motorcycle Helmet Laws...

The Man and I have been talking about this and I saw that Irish Diablo blogged about it (pointing out the strange irony of the fact that you can opt not to wear a helmet the same day you can legally go get drunk)...

A while back I posted about PA ditching its helmet laws and many of you thought that was a good idea --or that it's more constitutional. I suggested it be fine for someone to forgo the helmet as long as they also forwent the state or federal health care when they were a vegetable and theirs ran out...

But here's my question:
Why is it someone on a cycle's "personal decision" to wear a helmet, BUT it's state law that in my Jeep I have to wear a seatbelt? How can that possibly be rationalized?
