I think that's kinda funny actually!!!
I'm kinda conflicted about this sort of thing. Despite the fact that I have really huge issues with too much government in my life, kids can't choose whether or not they get in the car. BUT - What's next? You won't be allowed to smoke in your own home? Eating too much fast food is bad for kids too. Will we make laws against that? Where do you draw the line between protecting others and privacy?
I'm in NY and they are now trying to put a tax on sugared drinks because they say they contribute to childhood obesity which increases health care costs. And now I hear they are also wanting to tax gym memberships. Maybe it's me but uhm, I just don't get the logic there.
I feel the same way about many of these sorts of laws - seat belts, no cell phones, etc. There's good and bad in them. As of late I've even had to show the tanning booth folks my eye protection before they will turn the bed on - which is odd because they don't make me show them my sunscreen. I figure the plastics lobby must be behind that one.
