Buckle up for people who love you



Regarding Joanie Williford's June 5 letter about seat belts:

Just because motorcycle drivers and passengers are not made to wear a helmet is no excuse for her not to wear a seat belt. If a motorcyclist was allowed to drive off a bridge would she want the same chance to kill herself?

If you have people you care about and people who care about you, then your injury or death would affect them all. Buckle up for them, if not for yourself.

Think of wearing a seat belt as a caring gesture, not a law.
