(This is a debate with shorter word limit than others for my preferance)

Bike Helmet Law should be preserved because of these following reasons:

N1: Helmet Law provides safety to children that could easily get hurt.

N2: Helmet law is a current government regulation that show's its wisdom.

N3: I got saved once because of the helmet law.

(Please comment on how I can improve on my debate. It is my first one) Thanks

My opponent claims it helps safety. False, human psychology is more possible safety more dangerous things I can do. If drugs became safe, everyone would use them, hence making things safer causes more users and more dangerous behavior. Simple psychology refutes your point, increased deaths would occur.
You do not prove the regulations are wise, hence the point is invalid.
Personal arguments do not work in debate, further why was it you may have died? Reckless behavior? If so, its not a helmet problem when people die, rather personal recklessness.
My first argument is it cant be enforced. We will not be able to enforce it well without A LOT of resources, hence it increases costs, hence it has expense.
And lastly, it infringes right to choose. Right to choose is a liberty,[1] hence helmet laws infinge liberty. A righ to personal anotomy means helmet laws are unconstitutional. [1]
