You’re right, you can’t fix stupid, but at least we could try minimizing the chances of people killing or hurting other people who are just out there trying to enjoy a nice day on their bike. The whole point of the MSF is create that foundation for new, even experienced, riders to learn useful safety tips that will benefit everyone. It doesn’t mean everyone will utilize the skills they learned from a safety course but at least it will sit in the back of one’s mind even when they do something idiotic. They’ll think twice about it, or maybe they won’t, maybe I’m just giving people way too much benefit of the doubt. I’m all about freedom of choice and I love the fact that I can go out and buy a bike without any restrictions, but what I don’t like is the “stupid” riders/drivers that mess it up for the rest of us. By the time anyone realizes that the rider/driver is “stupid”, it’s already too late cause they probably killed themselves or someone else. Laws would never, ever fix stupidity, but it could keep them out my way and everyone else’s.
