Who is "they" and why do "they" think that? That is typically the excuse every uses when they don't wear a seatbelt.
the HOSPITAL said he would have died if he was wearing one and the POLICE gave him a ticket for not having one on

How would the hospital know what the condition of the vehicle was inside? I'm not saying its totally impossible. But generally "he/I would have died if he/I had a seatbelt on" is a complete load of BS.

I will have to agree with FireRanger on this one...How could the hospital know if would have died with a seat belt on not seeing the wreck or the car?

This thread surprises me

1. Why would you think 2500K headlights is legal?

2. Why would you waste your money on the those junk bulbs? ( I did when I was 16, I was retarded)

I see where you coming from, i just feel that black ice is something you can't control and you don't realize it's there until it's usually to late. Around here ticketing people for accidents caused by the weather is unheard of, just caught me off guard when i heard it.

I totally missed the black ice part. Been there, done that, bled from it.

Headlight laws are in place for a reason. Visibility factors are a huge reason. You need to be able to see. Altering lighting is not only illegal, it's stupid. Yeah, your vehicle looks cool, but why risk your safety or the safety of others. High five to machine0907767..

Except those laws vary by state and to say altering lighting is illegal as a blanket statement is inaccurate.
