Seatbelt Irony

This is a well-thought-out article against mandatory seatbelts, and this is the author’s obit, after he was without a seatbelt in a car crash.

I’m actually against seatbelt laws, too. Not because I don’t wear them — I always do and I encourage/coerce everyone else in the car to do the same thing — but because I think our limited force of police should be protecting us from actual crimes instead of wasting time harassing people who are endangering only themselves. And I’d prefer if the money spent on those creepy “Click it or Ticket” commercials was used for something a bit more useful. I really don’t think the job of our government should be to protect dumb people from themselves.

But still, the irony…
