Seat Belt Laws.............

I know that every state requires a seat belt but not every state requires a helmet, what can be done to change it so it is optional you wear your seat belt?

I dont want any negative comments or anyone talking smack, just straight up answers.
Thanks,
Chris

well if your car was equipped with a seatbelt, then the law says that you must wear it. If they took this law off the books, then the insurance companies would have a fit, they would be paying death benefits alot more often. Thats for sure.

NUHBOY4.6----well thats not an option at the time, plus politics bore the hell out of me.
JustinH----They took the law out for helmets so why couldnt it be done for seatbelts?

I dont want to start any crap on here but I feel that sometimes a seat belt can do more harm then good.I just think it should be an option to the driver, unless passengers are in the car.Then you should be required to wear it so you dont become a projectile to the passengers.

Thanks,
Chris

When school buses have seatbelts, I'll agree with the law. It's funny how I have to wear one at age 2 or get fined, but a bunch of 8 year olds can bounce around in a bus and it's no big deal.

Air bags are my real enemy. Gotta love the fact that you're not supposed to shut them off but if I happen to be driving when it goes off, I'm as good as dead... comforting thought.

I'm hoping to get a newer daily driver in the next few months and you can bet that the air bag is as good as gone.

Get a car made from the 50's - 60's that came without them and drive it. That is the only way you would get away with it here.

Why do you think seat belts are bad? In my state it is a more expensive ticket than a speeding ticket so obviously I wear mine all the time... but I don't see a problem with it.

Don't you believe the statistics that show that most people killed in accidents aren't wearing seat belts?

Ive never seen a school bus with seatbelts.

I think it should be up to the person if they choose to wear them or not. Here if a passenger isnt wearing one I believe the driver will get the ticket, which is BS just cause theyre in my car doesnt make me a baby sitter, does it? I never put it on if Im outside the city and not on major roads.

I noticed that most of the people who are against seat belts are under 30. I really hope you make it there and to 40. I've had a few serious accidents in my time, including rollovers, and impact with immovable objects. I am alive today because of seat belts. There is NO excuse you can give me, NO example of when it would be better not to have them on. I've heard many different excuses and talked to many different professionals. I have yet to meet a professional driver who didn't wear a seat belt. And they don't do it because its a state law, they do it because it is a law of common sense. I don't mean to offend or slam anyone but it really is just that; common sense. As for the seat belts in Buses, there have been studies to decide whether it is best to have them or not have them. I'll have to do some research to see what they have come up with on that subject. Most agree that belts in busses would be an excercise in futility. Try getting everyone who gets on and off a bus to put on a seatbelt!

i dunno what school busses you guys are riding, i dont ride the bus anymore, but when i did last year they definetly had seat belts. I remember the driver actually trying to make us wear them once.

But maybe thats becuase safety bus bought alot of new International yellow busses in 2001, so maybe you guys dont have newer ones.

The main reasons that they are not on buses is 1) if there is an emergency and people are injured it would be very difficult to get them out of the belts and off the bus quickly, especially with small children who are panicked. 2) Unless the bus goes off a bridge or hits a train, nobody is gonna be hurt in a collision . The size and mass alone are enough to protect the passengers in a collision with most vehicles on the road.

I have personally heard of one example when not wearing a belt saved a persons life. One the vehicle rolled and hit a tree which crushed the drivers side, the driver was ejected and lived.

But yes in the vast majority of cases the belts have protected people, but it should stil be up to the individual whether they choose to wear it or not.

My friend rolled her eclipse, she ended up in the passenger seat because she wasn't wearing a seat belt. If she had been wearing her belt, she'd be dead. it's a tough call either way.

Personally, I always wear mine, just out of a force of habit (and the thought of a ticket). Everyone that gets in my car wears theirs.

As for school busses, the only ones i've seen with seat belts are some of the short busses around here.

I've got a 57 F-100 w/o belts But anyways, I've had one seatbelt ticket before...not cool, but now I wear it ALL the time. Onto a serious note...it's a little more than the ticket. One of my friends from high shcool was killed in a car accident when we were freshman in college. She and two other friends were traveling to my city, when a drunk diver t-boned them. The driver (friend, not drunk guy) was killed and the other two passengers were injured. One was in a coma for 3 weeks and the other broke the big bone (above the knee...don't remember the name) in her left leg. All three were wearing belts. The two that made it out ok (and I use that term loosely, btw) were wearing their belts. This was all the night before my birthday...great way to spend it huh?

School busses don't have seat belts because they use padded containtment areas. seat belts on a school bus would increase injuries.

I always wear my seat belt, but I don't think it should be a law for anyone over 18.

I wasn't a big fan of seatbelts but If it wasn't for one I wouldn't be here after this happened Oops!
And the airbags never touched me!

Being a volunteer firefighter has showed me plenty of reasons for seatbelts/airbags!

I have one of those to! Except mine was a Z28 and a tree sideswiped me! (oh all right it didn't move and I hit it!)



Seat belt saved me by keeping me from slopping all over the car. Yes I did get glass and bark in my face but no broken bones, no serious injury whatsoever.

I'm a believer in seat belts as well. About 6 years ago, I encountered a windsheild head first because I wasn't wearing a seat belt in my friends truck. Had I been wearing a seat belt, I wouldn't have even been hurt.

I've been in quite a few accidents (all have happened when I was a passenger), including a couple rollovers, and I can definitely say that seatbelts have at least saved me from additional injury, maybe even saved my life.

I personally wear my seat belt every single time I get into a car. If I'm driving, the car doesn't move until everyone's buckled up. I don't need to get in a wreck, and have someone behind me slam into me and put me in the hospital or kill me because they weren't buckled in, I'd have a real problem with that. I haven't been in many wrecks, the only one that really comes to mind is when I rear-ended that Altima on the Tappan Zee. Going less then 5 mph, but it was enough of a jolt to me that the next day my neck was a little sore, probably because I tensed up when I saw I was going to hit. However, my son was in a five point harness car seat. He didn't move, and actually laughed after we hit. Had he not been in that seat, he wouldn't have been laughing...

The only bus I've ever seen that had seat belts around here was one of the very small, four seats on each side busses. The bigger ones around here don't have 'em, and God forbid if one of those things ever roll, they way they pack kids in, especially in high school, every single one of those kids would be, at least, injured or, at worst, dead.

And, I'm with Crystal. Air bags are way dangerous. Yes, we're not supposed to put certain aged children in the front, but what about people like her? I have no doubt that if Crystal were to get in a wreck, and the air bag went off, it would knock her head off, and I'm sure I wouldn't do much better. I have to sit way close to the steering wheel to see what I'm doing, and I've always had to drive like that. So why can't we turn those things off for our own safety? Kinda screwy.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is that there's a lot of stuff screwed up in terms of safety devices and transit, as the beginning post states.

So, in short, I always wear my belt. That's just what I do. It's what I've always done. I believe they save lives.

For those that are saying it should be up to the driver... that’s cool, and your insurance should also be twice what I pay...

I used to be of the opinion that seat belts were useless. Then one day a friend of mine made me do some "testing" in my old 65 Fastback. It originally didn’t have seat belts and I said I wasn’t going to install them. Well, we took the Mustang to a big parking lot and set up some cones. I drove through them as fast as I could. Then we installed some seat belts right there in the parking lot. And I went through the cones much, much faster! Instead of slipping and sliding in the seat, I was able to control the car a lot better.

So, IMHO, not wearing seatbelts is just silly. They DO SAVE LIVES, and they let you control your car better.

And yeah, the air bags…. At my height, I’m screwed!!!

That is why the new cars with the adjustable pedals and steering wheels are so nice. Because you can adjust everything to where you get everything to work the way its designed.

it used to be in jersey that it was law that you have to wear seatbelts, but you could not be pulled over for not wearing them. (you could get a ticket, but the cop would have to pull you over for a different reason), but they fixed that 'bout 3 years ago. and like 94 Daily Driven 4.6L said, they keep you in the seat so you actually drive--that way your less likely to be in accident.

How the hell can you get a ticket for not having a belt on in a parking lot? Isnt that a private area, not part of the road system?

i have mixed feelings about seatbelts, they could've hurt me, they have saved my butt, and not wearing one scarred my girlfriend for life ... she hit the windshield when my ex-best-friend hit a 30 ft tall palm tree doin 60 .... he was drunk and runnin from another accident .... he rearended a z28 in his 4 cyl jetta, and got away, didnt know it, and hit a tree .... no damage to the z28 either ... i had mine on in that one, and suffered a shattered left thumb, a broken rib, and a gashed knee ... in a previous accident, my brother was f'd up on 19 fierocets(sp?) and rolled a 90 lumina into a ditch, i was kicked back, with my leg on the pass side side-mirror ... if i wouda had it on, i wouldnt be drivin a stick ....
