Let me say I've been wearing my seat belt since I stopped using a baby car seat. I ALWAYS wear my seat belt
I will never condone a "seat belt" law that is only in place because major insurance companies lobby local and state governments. It's all about the coin and it's win win for the government (ticket revenue) and the insurance companies....But it's aaaall about the saaaafety and the chiiiildren. My ASS!
cha-ching cha-ching. More freedoms taken away for money under the guise of security.
Seat belts save lives, nobody is debating that. I WEAR MINE ALL THE TIME. But I want the government out of my life. I ride a motorcycle, not wearing a seatbelt (which I do) is small fries. I realize I'm taking my life into my hands every time I get in my car. We as citizens should not be punished for taking risks that affect nobody but ourselves.
Is the government going to fine me if I trip and fall for not tying my shoes? Since they're so concerned with my safety.
Now I hear insurance claims are void if you're not wearing your belt! Geez, I guess the insurance cos' evil master plan is all coming to fruition.
What they need to do is start making the Surgeon's General Warning label on cigarette packs bigger....I think EVERYBODY still smokes because they just haven't seen them.
no wait, raise taxes again. That will get them to quit.
O.k. Libertarian rant over, flame suit on.
