If people get in wrecks and become dependent on government assistance programs as a result of disabilities caused by their injuries, is it wrong to put in place laws that can be demonstrably shown to lessen the severity of those potential injuries? In one instance, you may be burdening individuals with laws "for their own protection," while in another instance you may be potentially burdening tax payers with providing support for someone who is otherwise incapable of providing for their self.
