A quick google search showed many results for seat belt statistics. I found none that are close to your fifty fifty that you are stating as fact. Simple research people!

Would you want that on your conscience? Or would you simply think, oh well it's not my fault the kids parents didn't buckle them up?
I know I wouldn't...which is why I keep my seat belt on and make anyone who drives with me wear one.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the seat belt law and I'm glad it's there. It's not a hindrance and it takes 2 seconds to take it on or off. BIG DEAL. We've all been doing it for years. I actually feel safer when I have mine on because I know if i'm going to be hit by something I won't fly through the windshield or eat the steering wheel.
I recently read a study that said 90 percent people think most people can't drive or drive worse than themselves. Funny eh?
The seat belt law is a good law...wish more people followed it.
