    That was cool as poo. But seriously, who the drat is stupid enough not to wear a seatbelt anymore? I remember in the 80`s no one did, but nowadays? There`s still people who don`t? Doesn`t seem right. It`s like driving a car without tires on the wheels. It`s the kind of stupid that isn`t even common place in your wildest imagination.

    I know tons of people who dont wear a seatbelt. the car beeps like crazy telling them to put it on, but they just ignore it. So retarded.

    Zerocyde: I know people who stil specifically don`t wear it because it`s "not cool".

    Seriously how drating stupid do you have to be? I had a girl with both feet on the dashboard, arm on the headrest, other on the armrest, lifteng herself off the seat so it wouldn`t make the beeping noise for not having her seatbelt on.

    Justification: The seatbelt is uncomfortable.

    You know the long rants I go on on IAB? Believe it or not I don`t do that in real life, or at least it`s fairly rare.

    I went totally into rant mode and lectured her for like 40 minutes on what a dumbass she was.

    Because seriously.

    I oppose seat-belt laws, On the principle that the government has no right to tell you what medicine to take, What doctor to see, How much to exercise, or anything else concerning your personal health and well being.

    Buckle Off

    Seat belt laws are just another way for the state and local municipalities to tax us (through tickets) and skirt around our 4th amendment rights. I love the statistic they give that "55% of auto fatalities were those not wearing seat belts", As if not wearing the seat belt caused the fatality. To see how absurd it is the reverse is true, "45% of all fatalities people were wearing a seat belt". There is no way of determining whether the passengers would`ve died anyways, With or without wearing a seat belt.

    If you don`t wear a seatbelt, you become a projectile when you`re in a bad crash and potentially hurt and kill others. If your life is worthless to you, that`s one thing, but it endangers others. Not to mention the parents who are anti-seatbelt for whatever reason and don`t make their kids wear them.

    CrakrJak I just don`t hope your wife/significant other dies in a car crash having no seatbelt on and the doctor telling you that she would only have suffered a broken rib or bloody nose if she would have used the seatbelt.. but I guess it`s the only way of teaching some people..

    It`s like either "warn your children to not play with scissors" or "Let them play with scissors, poke an eye out and then yelling TOLD YA SO! "

    "There is no way of determining whether the passengers would`ve died anyways, With or without wearing a seat belt."

    Thats FALSE. Scientific, repeatable studies of crash test dummies demonstrate beyond doubt that all things being equal, an unrestrained person will suffer greater injuries on average than one wearing a proper seat belt. There will always be exceptions - the restrained person dying, the unrestrained person being thrown clear without serious injury - but it is a simple fact that more people survive accidents with seatbelts on than without.

    I mean, a child can understand the logic of why. Did you ever do the "egg drop" experiment as a kid? Build a little protective case for an egg, it can survive a drop from the roof - while an unprotected egg goes *splat* every time.

    And while I understand your cynical view of the purpose of seat-belt tickets (gov`t just wants ma $$$), TAXES SERVE TO ALTER BEHAVIOR. Since its a scientific fact that seat belts save lives, you can encourage people to wear them by making it more expensive not to. And, for those who don`t wear them and who end up as road kill, consider your seat-belt ticket as prepayment for the police and ambulance services needed to scrape you off of the highway.

I bet they`d love to see their mothers/wives/kids crying after they took a good airtime out of the windshield and have their faces grinding on the road until nothing more is left of their faces.. all because they are proud men who defend their right to

    I definitely agree that people need to just put on a damn seatbelt. An old friend of mine died in a car crash a few years ago because he got thrown from the car and his head hit the road. Lo and behold, he wasn`t wearing a seatbelt!

    CrakrJak, it always pisses me off when people are all "I don`t want the government telling me what to do, blah blah blah" Guess what, you can at least vote for elected officials and have an influence on policies in that way. What choice do we have when everything is privatized and the corporations run everything. Unfortunately, in our day and age, it`s a choice, either big business runs everything or we let the government regulate stuff. I`d rather let the government regulate stuff because as a citizen, I`m at least able to take part in the democratic process. Ain`t no such thing as democracy between corporations and consumers.

    @CrakrJak

    Our government provides universal healthcare. In exchange, it asks us to abide by some sensible safety precautions (seatbelt laws, helmet laws), and asks us to provide more money towards that healthcare if we choose to engage in activity that`s likely to make us use that healthcare more (taxes on cigarettes, alcohol).

    It`s a social contract, and it`s the one we`ve chosen. It works very nicely. Our roads are among the safest in Europe (only a few beat us, such as the Netherlands), and far safer than American roads.

    I`m not going to debate you on your ludicrous assertion that seatbelts don`t save lives. I`ll just simply stand behind our amazing low fatality rate and simply suggest that we must be doing something right, because the results speak for themselves.

    Here`s the bottom line: IF you are willing to sign a waiver stating that in the event of an accident, no-one is to give you medical aid, THEN you should be able to choose not to wear a seatbelt. But while you expect someone else to help you, you have to minimize the chance of serious injury by following the rules.

    what is the fuss- why WOULDN`T you wear a belt? They are proven to reduce injury and save lives- it seems a total no brainer to me. Perhaps those who dislike the idea have already had a crash without one and therefore refer to first sentence.

    Ah, Crakr has introduced math.

    "Look at it the other way around, 45% who died DID wear their seatbelt".

    Lets pretend for a moment that your stats are correct.

    Lowest percentage of seatbelt wearers in the USA is Virginia with 83% WEARING their seatbelt.

    Highest is Illinois with 91%.

    You should expect roughly 15% of deaths to be people without seatbelts then across the USA. Not TRIPLE that.

    That is how stats work. Flip it back and forth as much as you want, there is MUCH MORE DEATH without seatbelts.

    End of story, using your stats. Phrased either way you choose, you lose.

    (And incidentally, it`s not 55% to 45%, it`s 70% of fatalities are those without seatbelts. Which translates to 5 times more likely to die without a belt).

    It`s not just death: Of the people who survive car crashes, unbelted victims stay three-to-five times longer in a hospital and incur two-to-seven times the medical costs of those wearing safety belts

    As for taxes:
    In fact, the taxpayer burden caused by those who fail to wear seat belts is estimated to be around $137 billion every year—more than $10 billion in medical costs alone.

    Unrestrained victims are more frequently uninsured, underinsured, or supported by the government through workers’ compensation, Medicare, or Medicaid. They also tend to be less educated than those who do wear seat belts.

    Is there any other way in which you would like to lose this argument?

    "in a democracy, you can`t really bitch too much about oppressive government, because the power ultimately rests on the shoulders of you and the people around you."

    True, but the way I see it, if you voted, but not for whoever`s in power, then you can criticise them. If you didn`t vote or if you voted for them, you have no right to criticise them cos either you had no say in the matter or you picked the guy in charge.

    I fall into the "didn`t vote" category cos I couldn`t make up my mind. As a result, I`m not complaining either way because of my own views that I`ve just said. Actually, I`ve just thought of a loophole that entitles anyone to complain: if whoever`s in power goes directly against their election promises (eg "I promise to lower taxes" then raising them, and yes I know it`s not that simple).

    And as for the seatbelts, I always wear mine. If you have an issue with the fine for not wearing them, the fine is there as a det

    ...deterrant. It`d save time and money if you crashed if you`d have just put your damn seatbelt on. I`m not going to post stats to support this cos I think the stats already given by other people give me enough support.

    Seatbelts became mandatory sometime in the 1970`s in Australia, because our lawmakers let things like `facts` influence them.

    Percentage of accidents per year involving a fatality, BEFORE mandatory seatbelts: 38%
    AFTER it became law to have to wear a seatbelt: 6%
    Five years later: <1%

    Same with motorcycle helmets and compulsory headlight on.
    Before: 78%
    After: 3%

    Pretty hard to argue with those figures.

    My argument was never about `Are seat belts safer`.
    It`s about the government forcing people to wear them. Now that the government has its grubby hands so deeply into our lives, It gives them license to force us to do, Or prevent us from doing, Whatever else they want (for our safety).

    It`s called cradle to grave nanny state socialism. The government knows better than you, So for your `safety` the state will force you to do whatever they want. They are already warning us they`ll take away caffeine, transfats, sugar, etc..

    We are loosing more and more freedoms everyday, Eventually we`ll have none at all and people will wonder why the hell we just gave away our freedoms so easily.

    Instead of worrying about seat belts to reduce injuries form auto crashes, i think you could save more lives by preventing the majority of crashes by making the test to get your drivers license 50 times harder. It was the easiest test I ever took in my life. There are so many dangerous drivers on the road who should never have been given a license.

    Thdot: I would agree with that. There are a lot of stupid drivers on the road these days. Like the people that are so impatient at a red light they keep inching forward in anticipation, I call them `Inchworms`. Also, The people that drive like they are piloting a fighter jet, weaving back and forth from one lane to another to pass people, I call them `Maverick & Goose`.

    What do you call the ones that inch forward at the red, then don`t go when the light turns green?

    "The planet where you`re fined $250. for not wearing one."

    How can they charge you if you just drating wear it?

    So what`s the problem? Smart people don`t get extra taxed, idiots have to give some extra cash to our government, which in-turn benefits us, and everyone is a lot safer!

    Everybody wins, wheres the downside?

    Great, if that`s your argument Crakr, it has already been addressed with regard insurance premiums and taxation.

    Everyone pays for your stupid, therefore we can fine your stupid, to end your stupid.

    When I was a volunteer firefighter I saw some instances where if someone was wearing their seat belts they would have been killed and other times if they weren`t they would have died.It`s a 50-50 chance and all depends on what type of accident you`re in.
    To me seat belts really don`t make a difference.
    Motorcycle helmets on the other hand are a different story.I live in a state without a helmet law and I have never seen a wreck where the person survived if he wasn`t wearing a helmet.

    @monsterzero

    I don`t think it`s 50-50. The type of accidents where a seatbelt would harm are far less common that the type of accidents where a seatbelt helps.

    CrakrJak, I`m in complete disbelief that even you would find something to disagree with about this.

    First of all, the government does know more than you. The state has a huge variety of scientists working for it, and funds for all kinds of research. You`re just one man. No matter how much you`d like to believe that you`re smarter than everyone else, you`re not. If the state tells you that something is bad for you, they are likely to be right. More likely than you, anyway.

    "Driving defensively" is also the most ridiculous thing I`ve ever heard. Your refusal to wear seatbelts is nothing more than a tantrum.

    moefreak: First of all, the government does know more than you.

    Even if that were true, That doesn`t give government the right to rule over our lives like a parent does a toddler. Quit drinking the Kool-Aid moefreak, The government and the people in it are not as benevolent as you believe. The government is full of elitists that will sell our treasured rights down the sewer for money and power. They are tightening their grip on our lives daily and you are going along with them like a sheep ready to be sheared, or worse.
