No, because if the car falls in water the seat belts will automatically tighten and the person will die. Also, a child might be cut by a seat belt when the car crashes.

So you'd rather smash your face on the steering wheel (and possibly the horn) when you need a sudden stop? You know, there was a scene like that in the Lego Batman Movie...

That will not kill you unless you fly through the window which is not likely. Smashing your face on the horn will not kill you (Unless you are Batman).

Wearing a seat belt won't kill you. It actually saves lives, and protects your face from getting smashed into what's in front of you. Would you be happy with a broken nose?

I also decided to find a site that talks about how helpful seatbelts are. According to it:

"More than 50% of people who died in car accidents were unrestrained. That may not seem to prove anything, but when you consider that 87% of people wear their seatbelt, that statistic becomes startling. It has been proven that wearing a seat belt reduces the rate of serious injuries and deaths in car crashes by 50%.". [source: https://blogs.lawyers.com...]

Over 50% of accidents lead to death on those who don't wear the seatbelts. Without a seatbelt, you'd go flying out your seat and chances are, it won't be pretty.

A seat belt is a freaking black rope that might kill you. Period. Even buses don't have seat belts.

Last time I rode a school bus, it had a seat belt. Just not the kind cars usually have. You've also ignored the stats I showed.
