I'll admit that I don't wear a seatbelt in the back seats of cars. They're often less comfortable than the belts in the front, and I can rationalize my decision by considering how soft and cooshy the backs of the front seat look from where I sit. "If there's a wreck," I tell myself, "aim for the back of the seat; avoid the windshield."
Anyway, the NC House has passed a bill that would require all back-seaters to wear belts (kids already have to). I'm sure that's a good thing (though I'm nearly as sure that I'll be in violation should the law pass). But not everyone thinks so. Here's a quote from an opponent:
"These folks concerned with seat belt safety have an appetite you can't satisfy," said Rep. Ronnie Sutton, D-Robeson. "It has to end."
