  1. Except for children having to be buckled in, let those who want to travel unbuckled do so. But, pass laws that stipulate that the costs of injuries and deaths to those unbuckled are strictly paid by the unbuckled. No insurance to cover hospital or medical costs.

  2. What many fail to realize is that seat belts – in addition to preventing/minimizing injuries in MOST crash situations – also enhance the driver’s control of his/her vehicle.

    Don’t take my word for it, find a nice large, empty parking lot someplace and run through an imaginary slalom course both with and without being buckled in.

    The results may surprise you.

    Extrapolate that to your having to take evasive action to avoid a crash and retain control of your vehicle.

  3. Another waste of your money…isn’t all of this what the Sheriff is supposed to be doing in the first place?

    Why does he need more money when he is already in the highest taxed county in the State?

  4. takes our money from us and then gives it to the states, who in turn give it to local communities on the condition that they spend it the way that the state wants them to spend it.

    Cut out the middlemen and keep the money and the decisions on how to use it local.

    The communities might have far more pressing needs than enhanced traffic enforcement, such as keeping the tax burden as low as possible.
