View Full Version : A perspective on seatbelts...

Do you know how we can tell the difference between people who were wearing their seatbelts and those who weren’t, at the scene of an automobile accident? The ones who were wearing their seatbelts are standing around saying “This really sucks,” and the ones who weren’t are kinda just lying there.
An interesting read...

I am sure the New Jersey Governor wishes he had his seat belt on:
Corzine - who was riding in a sport utility vehicle driven by a state trooper and headed to a meeting between radio show host Don Imus and the Rutgers women's basketball team - apparently was not wearing his seat belt, as required by law. The crash occurred when the SUV was hit by another vehicle that swerved to avoid the pickup truck, sending the SUV into a guard rail.
Witness Bobby Juska said he saw Corzine's feet hanging out the passenger side window. "He was screaming, 'My leg! My leg!" Juska said.
The governor's femur bone was broken in two places, and it protruded through his skin. He also suffered a broken sternum, 12 broken ribs, a head laceration and a minor fracture on a lower vertebra, according to doctors at Cooper University Hospital in Camden, where he was flown by helicopter after the crash.

Will he get a ticket for it? And also the state trooper (driver)?

For some reason, that accident involving Governor Corzine really hit home with me. I actually started wearing my seatbelt yesterday.

theres a video i saw with a high speed chase, I think it was a pickup truck or an SUV that was being chased. It went thru the median and onto the opposing lanes. You dont see it until the video highlighted it back: the driver gets thrown out of the vehicle and gets run over by SEVERAL oncoming cars.
