They need to worry more about signal light than seat belts. Me not wearing a seat belt has never cause a accident. There is more important laws that cause wrecks tailgateing is a good one I ride a motorcycle and they ride right on me rear. Don' worry what I have on worry about what I am or am not doing that can hurt or kill others.

If people would HANG UP their CELL PHONES and pay attention to the road, the accidents would not be as many. NOBODY can talk on their phone and drive safely. Texting while driving is just plain stupid!
Both should be against the law.

If people would pay more attention to the road and follow the traffic laws that would help. Every morning going to work I go through Glenwood and when I slow down for school zone I about get hit. I see teachers, school bus drivers and parents turning into the school and never once slow down. Also on stafford drive it says when kids are present it is 15 and no one slows down unless the kids walk out in front of them. I also will have to agree with cell phone issue.
well duh

This goes along with a growing population! And let's not forget all the kids that are getting Thier licence now. And I do agree cell phones play a big part.
