Drivers, Seat Belts?
Posted 8/4/07 , edited 8/4/07
I don't know if you guys use them, but I sure in hell do.
I've noticed in the last couple of days that there
are an alarming number of people is so. cali who do not actually wear them.

Believe me I've watched enough red asphault videos to know better,
but obviously the 60 year old grandma to the right either hasn't seen it
or simply doesn't care.


( can a mod edit the title to say "drivers" pls, ty )

So the question is, do you even use them?
And If not, why the hell not....

I used to race a lot, and I've seen some VERY nasty stuff on the track. So even if it's just around the corner or in parking lot, I always wear it.

EDIT: Grandmas prolly don't wear it because when they started driving cars they didn't come with seat belts.

It's against the law in Australia not to wear them...

They enforce the seatbelts here in (305).

They have this slogan called: "click it or ticket," sorta like that.

Some of the polices here are like ninjas. They hide themselves well; then, they suddenly pop out of nowhere, armed with shuriken donuts and nightsticks, when they see potential violators.





Just kidding. That would be cool though.

Probably, the seatbelts don't exactly fit. For horizontally-challenged people, that's mostly the case.

we have "click it or ticket" also, and i always wear mine, regardless of if theres a law or not. and you would believe how many people get tickets for no seat belt, there is so many.

I'v always wondered why people get fined for not wearing seatbelts. Why should the government give you a fine for putting yourself at more injury.

On-topic, I do wear them.

seat belts...big deal...Ive been hit at 60mph from behind...no biggie.

I hope to be one of those 1/20 that survive BECAUSE they did not wear a seatbelt.

My famous last words will be .... I...wish...I...would...have...worn...a...seatbelt...gurrr...

The seatbelt thing can be interesting though, though I have not looked into it much. Does the gov have a right to tell you to wear one? Is that too paternalistic? And all that jazz.

I'm more concerned about all these red lite ticketing cameras they are putting up all over.

My little brother granted the family a $400 fine for now wearing his seat belt. Lesson learned... and laws... must obey.
