2009.03.18 Leon Shulters: Seat belts

Written by David Green. Posted in Letters

I have talked to a lot of people who do not like the seat belt law. My experience with the seat belt is not good. I see more news reports saying more people are wearing the seat belts. The news don’t tell you why. People I talk to say they would rather wear the seat belt than get a ticket. More government scare tactics.

I have talked to law enforcement personnel and insurance agents. They tell me the same story. We don’t keep statistics on people who might have been saved if they did not have the seat belt on. The seat belt and air bag can save you or kill you. Depends on the accident you have. Government makes a law good or bad, you abide by it or get a ticket.
