I understand the risks and am capable of making my own decisions. that being said, I do wear a visor. (and its not all tilted up)

and for the other question, Illinois has a seatbelt law but no helmet law for motorcyclists. the point I was making was that as adults we should make decisions for ourselves. whats right for you may not be right for the next guy. although I wear my seatbelt, I dont think it should be the law for adults. an adult should be able to make an informed decision on their own.
I disagree. It costs tax dollars for the coroner to scrape you off the highway if you don't wear a seatbelt. Just like really the decision for you to wear protection or not rests with the person liable for whatever happens on the rink or pond you play on. In your case, you may have signed a waiver (or may not have), but anyone with legal experience knows those usually don't hold up much in court.
