Default Re: Kerala: Seatbelts mandatory for all occupants (front & rear)

I absolutely agree to this statement. There were people I know who were reluctant to wear seat belt until they started getting fined. This continued for a while and all of them inadvertently started clicking belts the moment they are on their front seats. Now over a duration of 2 Yrs they realised that even if the driver yanks the brake hard, they are held in place by the belt.

I believe its in the absolute the right direction but yes some law enforcing agents are bound to take advantage of the situation. That's a small worry for a larger benefit to the society.

I would second Loborgis!
Create awareness on the safety standards and let the people choose.

Freedom resides in giving options to make choices not in imposing a belief

Kerala ghats has many Jeep drivers who don't even have seatbelts as an option but the cops never bother to book or check

Modern rules for only modern cars?
