Default new commercial idea

here in oklahoma (i dunno about other states), they have commercials encouraging you to buckle up.

first:
"Buckle up, its the law"
then:
"Click it or ticket"


how about:
"Click it or die."

I don't think it should be law that you have to wear a seatbelt over 18, a person'* safety should be their own responsibility, don't get me wrong i wear my belt everytime but i just tihnk it should be a choice, suicide shudnt be illegal either

Agreed, if someone dosen't have the common sense to wear a seat belt, they shouldn't have a driver'* liscense...

How about if you don't buckle up and get in an accident and become a vegetable, you have to drain your life savings before getting any gov't assistance?

I always wear my seatbelt, but it should be a choice.

Rolled a car in H.*. 3 1/2 times and took out a light pole while dragracing (thats why not to dragrace kids!) with 2 freinds in the car. No one wearing a seatbelt, and nothing more than scrathes from the accident. Got a freind who hit a light pole doing 30miles per hour while wearing his seatbelt and broke his collarbone. So, ya i don't like seatbelts.

yes but he prolly would have died from either hitting the steering wheel or being thrown around in the car and causing more injuries....its a fact, the seatbelts save lives...period
