    How many of these accidents do we read about that kill people and 99% of the time we see the line "the victim was not wearing a seatbelt"? This should be a hint, wear your doggone seatbelt...the life you save may be your own and statistically you are 67% more likely to be not killed or less injured wearing one than not. Why do you think it's the law? not to make money for the courts (a 25 dollar fine isn't much), but to save lives, but so many Kentuckians are too stupid to follow the law.
