I think it's a right. You pay taxes which fund the roads so therefore you have the right to use them.

As for the seat belt question. I wear it but I don't think it should be a law.
It isn't the government's job to tell me that I have to be "safe".

They cant just randomly pull your liscense. This alone makes it an inalienable right. If privledge, they (gov) could take away your liscense to drive anytime, anywhere, at their liking

For me I'm not use to it, I do try to wear it as much as I drive, but I voted, no cause more often than not I don't, my first ride was a motorcycle... I always always but once wore a helmet...Now, my wife is trying to get me to do the seat beat and I try my hardest, in her car its automatic cause she is with me and my son is too. But in my truck its 25/75...the 225 wearing it...and here in Arizona its law, and there is no helmet law. And the one time I didn't have my helmet on was when a chick wanted to go for a ride and I was not at home, or thinking I'd have a rider so I didn't have my extra brain bucket and let her use mine...

Agreed. I wear my seat belt becuase I choose to, not becuase im being told to do so.

----------

In MI there trying to go back to no helmets. I still wear mine. People that dont wear helmets on a bike are just crazy! I can see not wearing one like down to daytona bike week or whatever, low speed, showing off your ride, but other than that, helmet for me!

They can't randomn;y pull it, no, but if you don't follow the rules they can take it away as driving is a privledge. You can still travel all you want, but the act of driving your car on a public road is a privledge imo.

The gov is already telling you how fast to go, what lanes you can turn in, etc, a seatbelt law is no different from those.

All I can say is I'm shocked by some of the responses....

I will always wear it unless I'm doing 4x4.

I wear a seatbelt in everything but the work truck. It's a pain in the ass to put it on after every stop just to take it off and jump out again except for after the last stop of the day, then I'll put it on. I always reach for it, though because it is a habit, I just choose not to wear it in that vehicle.

While I do wear mine most times, I think it should be a persons choice whether he or she wears it or not.

I'll admit I used to be somewhat careless about wearing mine. I was younger and dumb. Rolled past a state trooper and he saw me before I had a chance to put it on. Gave me a hefty fine.

Since then, i've always worn it.
