Nancy Rose Silvers: Seat-belt safety

March 2, 2014 

In response to the Feb. 27 letter “Not properly secured”: I am so happy that the letter-writer is alive and able to write to The People’s Forum. Many folks who disapprove of and refuse to wear their seat belts properly are not alive.

My precious son died due to head injuries caused by being thrown from a car. He was not wearing his seat belt properly.

The writer may not be as lucky the next time. I am very disappointed in her belief that “wearing my shoulder strap under my arm” was proper. The next incident might leave her without her life.
