No, it's good to wear a seat belt sometimes but not a law forcing us to wear one.


Yes, it should. Seat belts are an amazing invention that you just always use, even when parked in the street (I would say) and here"s why: let"s take that parked on the street example, let"s say that you don"t have a seat belt and a car at a reasonably fast speed crashes into you, there is going to be more damage to you than if you were wearing a seat belt, besides, to suffer a really bad car crash YOU don"t need to be going fast but another car, and you can never know when someone might crash into you.
So that"s why it should be a law (also some people just don"t do it unless there"s a consequence, we don"t want them to get hurt).
Hope to hear your thoughts soon.
Debate Round No. 1


Let me start by saying that it is stupid to not wear a seal belt. With that said, one's decision to not wear a seat belt is harming no one else. There is no reason that the government should force people to make the smart decision when only their own safety is in question.
