    Fortunately, those things are better understood by people making such laws.

    You have no idea what I know of the subject, so of course, you can't speak to it.

    Ah, well I'll remember next time another driver plows into me when he loses control of his vehicle due to not wearing a seatbelt to ask him if his act was virtuous or vicious.

    What were the faults with the seat belts?

    He lost control over his car due to not wearing a seatbelt? How does that happen exactly?

    You said in post #173 "You have no idea what I know of the subject." Did you mean to imply that that you know even less about physics than we initially suspected?

    Don't be daft. Look, your talk of physics here doesn't interest me and you have no idea what I know of it. Let it go.

    Fortunately for us, seatbelt laws are made by those who are more interested in physics than you are.

    There's no reason not to wear a seat belt, every reason to wear one.
    Your first statement does not seem to answer the question.

    Your second statement is rather a weak reason to force people to do things they don't want to, especially as there are reasons imaginable for not wanting to wear belts.
