Quote: As laws become increasingly strict for seat belts, fewer people will respond positively by buckling up in response to the laws. There seems to be a die-hard group of non-wearers out there who simply do not wish to buckle up no matter what the government does. I belong to this group.?.?.?.
Telling me to wear my seat belt is the same as making sure I have some sort of proper education before diving into a swimming pool. If I want to dive in without knowing how to swim, that is my right. And if I want to be the jerk that flirts with death and rides around with my seat belt off, I should be able to do that, too.
Quote: Kieper, a 21-year-old senior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, died early Tuesday morning when the Ford Explorer he was a passenger in travelled off an icy section of Interstate 80 and rolled several times in a ditch. .?.?. Derek, who was thrown from the vehicle, was not wearing a seat belt.
When you flirt with death, you run the risk that death has something more serious in mind. For what it's worth, I agree with Kieper's point that the government has no business making it mandatory to wear a seat belt. It should be the decision of the driver/passenger. But I must also point out that in my thirty plus years of driving I have never been in a moving vehicle equipped with a seat belt where I didn't buckle myself in. I don't buckle up because the government tells me I must, I do it because to do otherwise is stupid.
weird... the only reason i think they enforce seat belt laws is to keep down the amount of money the insurance companies have to dish out to each other, the hospitals, etc... which in turn... keeps our rates down.. to "protect the consumer".
This is why most states require auto insurance... so rates don't skyrocket.
