Re: Click It Or Ticket
In one of life's true ironies, I'm here today because my dad was in a bad car wreck & wasn't wearing his seatbelt.
He was riding shotgun in a convertible that rolled, then burst into flames. Because he wasn't wearing a seatbelt, they were able to lift up the car & drag his body out before he died.
(The rest of the story is that Dad had 3rd degree burns over 30% of his body. They weren't sure that he'd live. After weeks in ICU, they weren't sure he'd ever walk. Fortunately, Dad was a pretty good swimmer. Good enough that he swam for Doc Counsilman at Indiana. Before the wreck, Dad spent the summer training - he was going from a sprinter to a distance guy, so his heart & body were in outstanding shape. He eventually healed, got back into the pool, and after a year out of school, he earned a spot back on the team by beating the same qualifying time that was the standard for everyone else.)
Having said all that, I always wear a seat belt when I get into a car.
Dad does, too.
