I know it is the law to wear seat belts. You tell me why a sheriff is sitting in his car at a traffic light and I look over and NO seat belt! Now who is breaking the law??

More importantly, everyone with children could use a course or two on car seat safety and how to properly secure a child and when to forward face them.

I work at a fast food rest. You wouldn't believe how many people come through drive thru with their children and grandchildren sitting unrestrained in the front seat. Standing up in the seats and so forth.

You will be reading about how those same people without seat belts get killed in a car accident. Look at the accidents, it is shameful we have a law that's never enforced and people ignore at their own peril.

I read about all these senseless deaths, "not wearing a seat belt"!! And I'm most amazed by the number of young people dead due to not wearing a belt. Why don't parents love their children enough to protect them? Why? I just don't get that kind of stupidity and ignorance.

Officers, please write tickets and enforce seat belt laws. It's the law!!!

From the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Web site:

The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety maintains the Buckle That Child Hotline.

Motorists may anonymously call the hotline to report the Kentucky license plate of a vehicle with an unrestrained child.

An educational packet with child safety restraint tips is sent to the registered owner of the vehicle.

Just call - 1-888-235-8KID.

If I hadn't been wearing a seat belt, I'd still have my face looking normal and vision in my right eye..but No damned thing kept me pinned and my face got all smashed up by and airbag and glass

There are exceptions to everything. Your odds of survival are still much better with a belt than without. I obviously know nothing about your accident, but it's hard to imagine you'd have been much better off tossing all around the vehicle or being ejected.

And you might be dead if you hadn't been wearing it.

the point of that story IS ...If I HAD been wearing the stupid thing, I would've lost sight and my original face structure. People 21and over should be able to decide for themselves and let Darwinism do the rest

You're two posts are confusing. Were you wearing a seatbelt or not?

I say if they have an accident and aren't buckled up, then they get NO FREE MEDICAL CARE. That means if you can't pay, you can just have your bruised, bloody body drug to the house. My tax dollar could go to something else other than a spend down card for someone who's 'to smart for them there seat belts!' Live by the sword, Die by the sword!

you're aware that it's so highly likely that your face would still have gotten injured without a seatbelt to restrain you, right? Likely worse than it was?

Just curious why those judged my comment as disagree, clueless, and nuts?? If they want to make the decision to be smarter than the law shouldn't they be gainfully employed people with insurance and income to pay their bill. We need more guidelines on this 'assistance' people get. People need to be accountable.
Also, since government like to throw away good money on research, I'd like to see the statistics on the accident/injury to those not wearing seat belts compared to their means of living/education.(i.e. employed? graduate higher education? on any governmental assistance programs?)

Because it would be a sad world if dying helpless mangled people were not helped on purpose.

By that logic, they shouldn't try to rush anyone to emergency if found with their wrists slit, or people who drive drunk/high.

Let alone the fact that there would have to be an investigation before it's determined the exact circumstances of each and every situation in order for your wish of not helping those who might appear to not care about their own lives or others..Otherwise truly innocent people would be left for dead for no reason other than the law decided to turn into a huge prick.

I acknowledge perhaps a little hash on my stance. ok. to that measure I ask, at point is a person allowed to take whatever action they want without any accountability? Why do any of us ever follow the law? Why is ok for some to disregard it and do as they please at will without consequences? When will we be premitted to stop allowing people to self destruct and then be expected to rush in save them and foot the bill????

I understand what you are saying and there is no easy answer. On one hand, you can't just sit by and not help someone in a life or death situation even if it their own fault, and on the other, people keep doing stupid things and then expect to be bailed out. It's very frustrating when you know that you're paying for their irresponsibility.

By logic they shouldn't care for people who try to commit suicide or drink themselves to death.

And to clear up confusion, NO I wasn't wearing a seat belt.

But it's more than just a seat belt. The Government has spent their time and our money to make it a point that we HAVE to wearthem, or we get fined....

Their logic behind it is : safety...

What's next? Caffeine? Fast Food? Think a bit deeper. It's not about our well being...It's about the money that they can get out of us once we break a law.

Why should I pay higher car insurance rates and medical insurance rates because you are too stubborn to wear seat belts? Those not wearing seat belts that get into a crash should have to pay all costs, both medical and repairs.
