I wear mine sometimes but not all the time. I would be more worried about the seat belt coming up and hitting my neck before I would worry about it getting stuck.

If they are so worried for my safety then why don't the a 5 point harness like race cars have in my car.

It gets me how everyone talks about how safe our cars are however you can die in a 40 mile an hour crash. We have race cars that are going 300 miles an hour and crash and the people will get up and walk away.
if the injuries and accidents cost money, then making it law is necessary to aim to reduce this injuries hence lowering costs ...

Please show your research that backs up the claim that people not wearing seatbelts and getting in accidents costs the US or Canadian health care system significantly more money than it would if we did not have the laws... I would love to see it, because it don't exist.

I don't see what is the big deal in understanding that letting the government run every aspect of your life is NOT acceptable.

You have already admitted that the law is a "cash grab". So please explain how handing out tiny little fines is actually making people buckle-up.... Can you? I doubt it, because people who don't want to buckle up are not going to do it out of fear of a small fine. Making up false facts to give reasoning to a law, after the fact, is beyond dishonest. Don't tell us it is to save money on health care, or to save lives. Because it's neither. It's about MAKING MONEY.

Well that's a crappy attitude and statistically speaking, you have more of a chance dying in a non roll over then you have of even rolling over.Stop being so stuborn and think about your little boys who need a dad instead of worrying about being Mr Anti-Government .

Just states trying to collect money . Ill go to jail before i sign a seatbelt ticket. The govt wont tell me i HAVE to listen to the radio , or run the heater , and they wont tell me i have to wear my seatbelt either .

If God says its my time then its my time , no 2 inch wide piece of nylon will stop his decision.

click it or ticket is for making money and that is all. if it was really about safety then it would be all year instead of just a certain time of the year.

No no no no no....

They just get stiffer with enforcement during holiday seasons when more people are out on the road.

And they are not making the law, it's already there. It's state by state, and it's largely been in place for 25 years.
