New Hampshire’s legislature is considering a mandatory seat belt law as New Hampshire is Last in the Nation on this requirement. In this morning’s Concord Monitor, Eric Moskowitz points out that “Belts may save more than lives: Insurance costs could drop.” Yeah. maybe, but there are better reasons. Garrett Fitzgerald links to a post by Jim Macdonald:
“Do you know how we can tell the difference between people who were wearing their seatbelts and those who weren’t, at the scene of an automobile accident? The ones who were wearing their seatbelts are standing around saying “This really sucks,” and the ones who weren’t are kinda just lying there.”
Don’t be found lying about. Wear your seat belt. Whether required by law or not.
