Well, not much to say to this, except make sure & be careful on the roads during the Holidays.

Be safe, have fun, enjoy time with your family.

TC - You are absolutely right on every count, yet so many just don't get it.

I would be dead today if it weren't for my seatbelt, and I do not let others in my vehicle if they won't put it on the minute they get in.

I knew of a case where a mother had two children in the vehicle, not in seatbelts. She was waved out of a shopping center parking lot and inched out. Unfortuantely, the lane she was pulling out into wasn't clear. For all intents and purposes the vehicle she was driving was barely moving, yet when it was broadsided the children were ejected and killed instantly. It changed how I viewed the actions of so many who don't buckle up till they are "on the road", yet in this case sadly, these children were not going to be secured anyway.

The driver of the vehicle that hit them has to live with the memory forever of the two children flying out of the car, and it doesn't matter that it wasn't his fault. The worst part was the police had to sneak/escort him out of the hospital afterwards due to the mob that had congregated outside blaming him for the death of those children. They should have gone after the mother, not him.

As for idiot who waved her into oncoming traffic - another pet peeve of mine. I don't care how nice someone appears to be, allowing me into traffic I can't see. Don't do me any favors. I'd rather wait 5 minutes to be clear than trust another driver to yield the right of way to me.

Unfortunately, no one seems to take seriously enough the issue of inexperienced drivers either. Shame a judgement call on the advisability of having the girl at the wheel with a packed car on the highway could have prevented this too.

A previous boss and our secretary were killed in a car accident a few years ago. The girl was only just 17 years old and they would have lived if it wasn't for not wearing seatbelts. They were only doing about 30mph when they impacted and were both killed instantly.
