Wearing a seatbelt

Here's one for ya, should there be laws where you must wear a seat belt? I know there are already states that have put this in affect, including Colorado. In my opinion, I think that it is important due not just to the terrible injury's you can get, but also all the money that is lost from various people. For example, a family may not be able to afford to take care of their loved one who happens to be in a coma, and I think then the government has to support the person in a coma (which costs mula). Not to mention funeral costs, insurance (I believe), and hefty medical bills.

What's your say?

Same law applies here. I believe the seatbelt law is federal, not state. Tests have shown, though, that they help tremendously.

government pays?
Wheres the money coming from, taxes? We should not have to pay for someone's injury. And if the person is not wearing there seatbelt, then too bad.

My brother never wears his seatbelt, i always tell him to but he ignores me.

The seatbelt law applies in Maryland, too. I don't know about other states. But to me, it's simply common sense. If it's not a law everywhere, it should be.

We have that law here. You get a huge fine if you don't wear it. It's very affective.

Wisconsin has the law, and i always put mine on.

But if a person does not want to put one on and dies in a car crash, its there dumb fault.

I think this is a nonissue. In most (if not all) states, there are Buckle Up laws, and fines for those who do not comply. Everyone knows seatbelts save lives, and this isn't the 1950's, with people cutting them out of their cars because they don't wanna be trapped in their car (!?)
I can't see anyone complaining about this...
