There ought to be a law

From CNN's main story on their homepage:
An Ohio sheriff had harsh words for ice fishermen who had to be rescued Saturday after weather conditions caused an ice floe to break away and strand about 150 of them on Lake Erie. "If there was a section in the code about common sense, we would have had 150 arrests out there today," Ottawa County, Ohio, Sheriff Bob Bratton told CNN.
All northern states should have laws fining people for being idiots, for wasting the resources of the state, and fining them double the costs of the rescue. That goes for idiot mountain climbers too.
