I agree with you 110%.

I've worn a seat belt since 1969. When I opened up the Firebird to 140mph - I just felt the need to be belted! But I don't see the need for a law and fines!

It's part of federal legislation that in order for states to receive highway $$$$ states have to enforce seat belt laws.

emily,

Yes it is sad if a seat belt could have saved her life. Having the law didn't make any difference to her.   Understand I wore my seat belt voluntarily since 1969. Nothing prevents a person from wearing it. The point is, I don't want the Government ordering me to wear it and ticketing me. The less Government, the better.

a true law renegade doesn't care about anyone or anything....not their own kids, their own lives or ANYTHING........Until they have to pay out of their pockets for it a few times. There may be hard nuts to crack, but enough tickets, they change their minds. I hate to see these little moms who run around high as can be with their kids jumping all over the car. Usually, that is the same woman I have to dodge on the road just to make it from point A to point B.
