Free from the belt


To the Editor:

The compulsory seat belt law is going to come to an end on June 30, 2013. Are they going to return all the money to the people that they fined $85 at that time also?
What was the purpose of this stupid law to begin with? Don’t they think that Rhode Island drivers have enough sense to know that seat belts can save lives?
The thing that irks me is that it was just another freedom the government took away from me.
Roe versus Wade decided that a woman has the right to decide what goes on with her own body. As a man, don’t I have the same right? If I don’t want to wear a seat belt, am I hurting anyone else?
