We have to wear seat belts in a car by law, but the guy on the motorcycle can drive without a helmet. DUH!

Safety = #2,Money= #1. If they got all the people off the road that should not be driving,it would make things alot safer.

Thanks big brother. Just what we need, more government control over our lives. And when your kids do something stupid and die you too can devote your life to making a law that has your stupid kids name on it. Give me a break. What happened to "survival of the fittest"?

So now the police can stop anyone under the excuse of "I thought they didn't have a seatbelt on" and find probable cause to search the vehicle. I don't do anything illegal, except speed on occasion, but as a patriot, I think this law stinks. Terrible.

This law passed because it is a revenue maker, not because of traffic safety. The teens this law is dedicated to were in a high speed crash, isn't speeding against the law? That law didn't seem to slow them down so why does anyone think this law is going to make teens buckle up?

It's my choice and my choice ONLY if I want to wear a seatbelt. This stupid law won't force me too. Just another ploy to make money. I feel bad for the guy's daughter, but that does not give the state any right to force their view on me. I will only buckle up when I get near a cop on the road. When everyone starts doing the same thing, they won't be able to pull anyone over and all the wasted time involved will be for nothing. Good! Get no money! They will find another bad excuse to get it though.

And SPEED is one of the largest factors in automobile crashes, so your contributing to the danger.

"It's just unbelievable that it should be a 20-year battle to protect people," said Slosberg, who traveled to Tallahassee for the bill-signing ceremony.

It's just unbelievable that the Government is spending all this money to "protect us from ourselves". While I personally always buckle up, I do NOT think it is the governments buisness.

Just another revenue grab, more tickets = more money.

Here's another Irv Slosberg who's own family member died because of their own fault, then they want to save us from ourselves. Sort of like the parent who lets their own child play in the street. When they get run over, they want laws to make us conform to their own selfish wants.

Obviously you must have forgotten what being a teenager was like. Because the loss of his daughter was due to being young and thinking that we were invinsible. Irv was and still is great father. Things happen and what he's trying to do is protect the future children and family of this country. You have no idea what it feels like to loose someone close to you due to something so tragic as to what happened to Dori, which is obvious by your comment. Because of people like you, this country is the way it is. Do something to better it and stop speaking badly about those who actually do something about the problems in the USA.
You are probably the type who also speaks badly about our troops at war. SAD SO SAD.
