Same as an airbag, crumple zone, countless other pessimistic protection devices, etc, etc, ad nauseum. You don't need them unless you're going fast. If you feel safe at 70mph with a seatbelt, you should feel safe at 30mph without one.
... likely because you're a stereotypical stubborn dumbass and
I'm British and consider all Americans stupid. Why did you use an American insult if you're not an American?
It SHOULD be up to me. The law stupidly thinks people must be protected form themselves.
I agree. In fact I don't think there should be ANY free medicine. Healthy people shouldn't pay for others' misfortune. But if we are going to have a fee health service, then charge for things which you could have avoided.
Agreed, as long as they DON'T get any punishment for driving while drunk and NOT hitting anyone.
Instead of doing people for speeding, why don't we do people for crashing? Consider two people:
Mr Smith drives at 90mph on the motorways and has zero accidents in his whole driving life.
Mr Jones sticks to the sped limit everywhere, never breaks any laws, but isn't so observant and has a crash every few years.
Which person would you rather be removed from the road or punished? That's right, it's Mr Jones, he is clearly more dangerous, and has inconvenienced many people. Yet the law has probably given Mr Smith countless speeding fines and could have removed his license if he did it enough, yet Mr Jones gets nothing but an insurance premium rise.

Paddy replies "I don't know! It’s your flipping plane!"
