Seat belts [Mar. 27th, 2006|03:15 pm]

Please please please... wear seatbelts! And if you have children or are driving children, please make sure they are wearing seatbelts too!

One of my coworkers was involved in a really bad car accident this past weekend. I don't really want to go into details (as I've heard about this third-hand, and the details are a bit sketchy), but her 12-year old daughter was ejected from the car and died on impact. Her other daughter is in critical care; I believe, she has brain edema (again, sketchy details).

So, PLEASE! Wear seatbelts! *sniff*

Oh, that's horrible. Best wishes to the daughter who lived.

Seat belts have always been second nature to me, so I'm always confused by people conciously not wearing them (or not enforcing their children wearing them).

Me too. Seat belts have been ingrained in my mind since childhood, so I don't understand why people don't want to wear them.
