  • Seat belts save hundreds of lives!!

    45-50% of teenagers die in car crashes because of being unrestrained. Some people are killed because their parents never enforced and were never told of how dangerous not wearing a seat belt can be. They didn't now the massive death rates. We need people make sure America's children are safe.

  • Think of Others

    Even if you don't care about your own health and wellbeing, others care about theirs and you not buckling up may adversely impact other's health and wellbeing (as in "you run into someone they get killed"). I think that buckling up will result in more responsible driving, and is a great way to keep others safe.

  • Lives are not the only impact in this argument.

    Yes, the most topical contention would be that lives would be saved. But let's look at the question from negation's viewpoint. Even if you buy the negation's only contention in that the government is infringing on the public's right to freesdom, if the government did not impose seatbelt laws, there would be two main warrants. The first would be that car/health insurance would increase significantly. Immediately people would stop buying insurance in general and then rely on medicaid. Therefore, the impact there would be an increase in taxes. That leads me to my next warrant, an increase in injuries would lead to not only an increase in taxes because disabled/paralyzed rely on medicare/medicaid, but a significant decrease in productivity. More disabled=less workers. Less workers would significantly harm the economy. All in all, seatbelts not only saves lives, but the economy and the tax payer money as well. Don't be stupid, just wear your seatbelt.

  • If you won't do it for yourself, do it for others

    Even though some may view it as a violation of "personal freedom", it really is best for the country and its people as a whole. When you are on the road, especially on the highway, you are trusting other drivers to drive safely and responsibly. A seatbelt law will not only save the lives of people who don't normally wear seatbelts, but also of those who do.

  • Seatbelts save lives.

    While I'm usually not in favor of a big nanny state government, sometimes people do need to have their own stupidity legislated away from them. Yes, the United States should have seatbelt laws. There's nothing about freedom or responsibility to be found in allowing someone to kill themselves when a simple nylon strap can keep them safe.

  • Seatbelt Laws are Needful

    Making it a law to wear seat belts reiterates the importance of it, and will keep it fresh in the minds of people who would normally not think of it if given a choice not to wear them. Also, enforcing a law will validate insurance claims because there would be a set standard for everyone and when someone doesn't abide by that law or standard, then judgment of how that person should be penalized or compensated would be made easier.

  • The US should have seat belt laws

    Using a seat belt is the difference between life and death. It is simple and easy, and there is absolutely no reason why people shouldn't use it. We should impose fines for the protection of the people. The bottom line is, if your not wearing that belt and you get into an accident there is a very good chance you will die.

  • Crack kid is funny

    Hey bud im good are you. Thats good. Have you ever went out to your deer stand and relized you had to poo. It sucks because you got to wait like 2 and a half hours. Then when you get home you don't have to go anymore. Then it's just stuck in ya. But you know thats pretty neat.

  • It should be our choice

    Seat belt laws go against our rights that are given to us in the fourth, fifth, and ninth amendments. It also goes against the civil rights section of the fourteenth amendment. While seat belts save people in certain kinds of traffic accidents, people have also been seriously injured and even killed because they used seat belts. Some people have been saved from death only because a seat belt was not used. In those cases, people are subject to fines, for not dying in an accident, for not wearing a safety device. State should not have authority to take chances with a person's body, the ultimate private property.

  • NO NO Absolutely NOT!

    My Government has ABSOLUTELY NO right to impose this Law on any adult citizen of a FREE SOCIETY! As with all these stupid Nanny Laws, it is disguised as a "GOOD THING" for us, when in reality it is just another excuse to extort more money with fines from its tax paying citizens, whether it be a "GOOD THING" or not.
    Mandatory seat-belting children in a car is a completely different story.

  • It's NOT the job of the government (See the Constitution)

    Following the argument for Seat Belts then all of the following should be illegal as well. Mountain Climbing, spa-dunking, scuba diving, motorcycles, all types of motor racing, overeating, well the list goes on. When would you say enough? Yes, seat belts are a good idea but it's NOT the job of the government (See the Constitution) Thank You.

  • Should anyone tell you that you have to tie your shoes or you will be breaking the law?

    Local/state and federal government should not be able to enforce the seat belt laws for those over the age of 18. Since seat belts do cause injuries to those involved in collisions on a daily basis, such a law actually forces drivers to put their health and safety in the hands of the law.
    I want my health and safety to be decided by me; period!

    Pretty soon everyone will be required to wear a helmet, mouth guard and safety glasses when driving a motor vehicle!

  • Seatbelts save live.

    Seatbelts do save countless lives. But does that mean I shouldn't be able to make the decision by myself? Laws are to protect us from each other not our selves. I assume you think an eating limit per day would be absurd but in principle is it any different? No.
