I'm tired of the government playing the role of "Father Knows Best". Treating us as stupid children who must be protected from ourselves. Is it stupid not to wear a seatbelt? ...sure , But as adults we should have a choice.
Absolutely make sure the kids are buckled in and quadruple the fine if they aren't.
99% of politicians are lawyers who get elected to make more laws....every year...city councils, county commissions, state assemblies and both houses of the federal government meet and their sole purpose in life is to write MORE laws. By the time my granchildren are my age there won't be any choices left in life ..they'll receive a rulebook stating everything they have to comply with.
