In Canada, no helmet=totally punk rock?

This headline had us scratching our heads for a few moments...

...until we realized that, in Canada, going without the lid will earn you a $29 ticket — what one representative from the northern nanny state calls an "attitude adjustment fee."

Times are certainly rough when people have to resort to such petty gestures to stick it to the man.

But this strikes us as similar to protesting your taxes by filing them late. Nothing says "crazy-ass rebel, stickin' it to the man" like getting audited by the IRS. Other than maybe having your head crushed by a delivery van.
