    A car shouldn't start until all the passengers have put their seat belts on.

    Yes because when your ass gets into an accident, even one not your fault, and you're rushed to the ER your impact on my tax dollars is going to be a lot less if you were less injured because you wore your seat belt.

    Don't give me any of this crap about the tyranny of government seat belt laws, freedom is not freedumb.

    Faulty can also mean jammed. Faulty can also mean when the retractor doesn't retract properly and leave slack which can also cause death.

    I've known cars like that. Easy to get around. Simply leave it hooked up and behind you.

    a) Yes. They are nessisary to protect the public for their own good.
    b) No. I'm a consenting adult and shouldn't have to wear one if I don't want to.


    Discuss...



    Anyone who is ticketed for not wearing their seat-belt should spend however long it takes in school learning not to forget to always use them.

    Isn't that what car insurance is for? Isn't that what Obamacare helps with also? Guess your tax dollar no longer matter in this regard.

    Not so. You are required to wear a seat belt (only if you drive/ride on public roadways) not only for your own good but for the increased safety of others. Seat belts help keep the vehicle's occupants inside the vehicle instead of allowing them to become projectiles, ejected upon impact. These belts also help to keep the vehicle operator in a position to try to control the vehicle after the initial impact, helping to avoid secondary collisions, on our busy roadways. Having a damaged vehicle (or two) in the path of other motorists is bad enough, but adding one (or more) ejected people to the accident scene increases the danger to other motorists as they try to avoid adding themselves to the pile up.
    The fact is, we don't have to do anything but die. As for the rest, we just have to suffer the consequences of our choices.
    As stated to a friend just recently: "I can't help it if you think of only yourself, but have the decency to consider your family for just a moment, imagining them visiting your veggied self after they extracted your ugly mug from the windshield".
    Its really not just about us, is it?

    Re: Do you believe in seat belt laws for consenting adults?

    I for one, care less for them, and would not wear one if it was legal to not do so.

    Texas passed the seat belt law in 1984 (coincidence?). I did not comply until I was ticketed in 1993 for not wearing one.
    I hate the damn things.
