    Re: Seat Belt Laws

    Is there any Nascar drivers who refuse to wear a seatbelt restraint?

    May be surprizing but their are few head-on or rear-end collisions with trains. And T-bone collisions are nearly nil.

    Not one. Good question that separates smart from stupid.

I've been to accident scenes and it is more often than not very obvious if the occupants were wearing a seat belt at the time.
    I wasn't asking how they knew that the person wasn't wearing a seat belt...thats normally obvious. No, what I asked was how they "know" that a seatbelt was being used incorrectly so as to kill the person.

    I don't because of my life experiances. I've seen the results of seat belt use and non-use in accidents. And each time it was contradictory to what the "experts" say.

    Nascar drivers also wear flame retardent suits, should we require all drivers, passengers, and kids to wear them also?

    Yes, because that's exactly the same.

    Please don't take this personal. I just want to present a scenario to prove you're wrong.

    Your driving down a highway with your two young children safely strapped in their car seats. You're not wearing any restraints because you firmly believe what you've falsely posted... that driving without a seatbelt endangers no one but the person that is not wearing a seatbelt.

    Then an accident happens as it so often does... You hit something on the highway, or fall asleep, or get a blowout, or get sideswiped by a hit and run driver, or [insert action here] that causes your car to suddenly stop moving from a rate high enough to cause your body to be propelled forward into the exploding airbag and roof breaking your neck.

    You're at peace now because your brain no longer functions and believe me that's a good thing since you don't have to hear your hysterical children calling for their daddy as the smoke and fire....over time....eventually burns them alive.

    I've seen the results of people who think like you so I hope you change your mind.

    Re: Seat Belt Laws

    would someone please..... Think of the children!!!!!!
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Not sure if you meant that sarcastically or not, but am taking it as such as that seems to the be battle cry of anyone that tries to push an agenda that even remotely might affect a child.

    It was extremely sarcastic.
