Poor choices

In response to "Cash Grab by Mr. Mark Levey"

While I respect Mr. Levey's opinion in regards to seatbelt use I also consider it very selfish to say the least. It is people like him that ultimately bring laws into place to protect other people of their poor choices.

I doubt that Mr. Levey has once considered the impact of him going through the windshield of his vehicle has on First Responders or perhaps the school bus full of children that happen by such an accident. Needless to say the associated costs that will be put on the rest of the taxpaying citizen, either directly or indirectly through such choices.

I suggest Mr. Levey bring up his concerns with his MLA or appropriate governing body.

In closing, First Responders do a tremendous job,they do not need the added stress that the above contributes to their lives.
