Its not about being safe and saving lives, if that were the case, the government would be up the auto industries ass about making better cars than these sorry plastic cars that so many american car makers push out (same with gas mileage). Its more about an easy way to get more tax dollars flowing just as the seat belt law is, a way to tax. Same with traffic cameras, they dont reduce accidents but they do increase tax revenue. This is America - Its all about money...!!!!!!!!!!!
TAX TAX TAX - thats all...!!!!
