Buckle the fuck Up

From MinnPost:

Just 23 percent of Americans live in rural areas, and their roads carry less than half of the nation’s traffic. Yet they account for more than half of the nation’s vehicular deaths, according to a report issued this year by the U.S. Dept. of Transportation. In 2006, for example, 55 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities occurred in rural crashes.

One reason is that more rural residents shun seat belts, according to the national report. Last year 84 percent of American in urban areas said they buckle up compared to 78 percent in rural areas. A University of Minnesota study reported in December found that pickup truck drivers were the least likely in the state to use the belts.

  1. I actually don’t care if we force people to buckle up or not. I don’t need a law to tell me to put a seatbelt on.

    If you read the article, it is quite a dangerous cocktail: speeding, drinking and not wearing a seatbelt. Hopefully they don’t reproduce beforehand.

    Why do I have to wear a seatbelt but not a helmet for my motorcycle?

    Why can I conceal and carry without even proving that I know what a gun is?

    Why did Dick Cheney shoot that guy in the face?
