Should we have a law for seat-belts?

Should we be made to use these things, or should it be our choice. Many people have been burnt alive because they cannot get out of their car, so should this law be in place, or should we be free to choose?

I understand your point of view on this. I don't think the government should tell us to wear one. That being said I do know they can save lives just as they can cause injuries. Trust me I know, my hip is permenantly damaged due to the seat belt however if I hadn't of had it on the damage would have been worse.

hi,Rules are made considering the broad view,we can't restrict to one incidence.If they say it is up to us to follow,no body follow the rules,thats why they make rules as legal.Same in the case of attending phones while driving,helmet...

using seat belts are very important especially in airplanes,buses (cars),rides in amusements,,it really gives protection to us and safety.maybe if people do not use seat belts its their choice if they use it or not right?accidents are really happened.if its your time we cannot hide it life will be taken to us.

There's actually a seatbelt law in the US. I think because a lot of kids get killed in car accidents. There are also child seat laws... we should have this type of law all over the world especially in third world countries where people are crazy drivers... undisciplined too!

Why would anyone want to get into a car and not wae a seat belt? Why would anyone choose to not do something that can save their life should you get into a collision? It should be the law. Yes you may feel it should be your choice, but you are also a role model to friends, children and if they see you not wearing one they may think it is just fine. The injuries are far more serious when you do not wear one and you have a much higher chance of being thrown through the windshield, and or being ejected. I would love to see evidence of people being burned alive in their car because they cannot press a little button to take the seatbelt off. If that does happen, the chances are slim.
