Illegal – Shmeelegal

Day 2 – Something that’s illegal that you think should be legal.

Hmm, I wonder if there happens to be anything in the news that we can talk about it. As a matter of fact…there is.

In Rhode Island they have passed legislation that will lower the cost of a ticket for not wearing a seat belt from $85 to $40. Seems legit. I wear a seat belt…if I’m traveling somewhere where I deem it necessary to wear one. If I’m running around town, I don’t wear one. I don’t wear one because I don’t think I should have to. I believe that should be a choice. Bam!

  1. That’s fine if you are the only one in the vehicle, but if there are others in the vehicle with you, who wear seat belts, they (especially kids) can be killed by your body slamming into them repeatedly in the event of a roll. For this reason, I have always made my passengers buckle up also, even if they object.
