Road Rage: Buckle Up Before It’s Too Late

Wearing your seatbelt is easy. So please do.

Dear terrible driver,

Buckling your seat belt takes a total of four seconds extra to do and could save your life. So why wouldn’t you?

I can’t comprehend why you wouldn’t just wear it. In my opinion if you can’t make time to complete a task so simple and so vital, then you should NOT be allowed on the road. If you’re stupid enough not to wear it, you’re not a very good driver and you have a higher chance of getting into an accident.

But seriously, do you want to die by not wearing a seat belt in a car crash? Maybe it’s just me, but that seems like a pretty dumb reason to die. I mean picture it a headline: “Man’s Death Could’ve Been Saved By Seat Belt.” It doesn’t have a great ring to it.

But, don’t get me wrong. I am more than pleased with all the safety features cars have now-a-days. Oh, do I adore that lovely beeping the car makes as if constantly saying “Put your seat belt on! Put your seat belt on! Put your seat belt on!” until you actually decide to do it.

Seriously though, wear your seat belt. “Click it or Ticket,” as they say. Not only is it the law, it’s just common sense.


With love (but also rage),

M. Felt
