if the public doesn't need protection from itself, why bother with licensing in the first place?
here in NH, eye protection IS mandatory, helmets are not

eye protection can be in the form of goggles, safety glasses, helmet visor or windshield (I think has to extend 14" above handlebar ?) I'm covered wearing prescription glasses
