As Useless As A Fart In A Thunderstorm

Oh dear lord!

OK, fess up, which one of you Prairie P & P’s was it? Paul Weigand from Wichita, Kansas, thought he could get around the mandatory seat belt law by wearing himself a belt made from an old seat belt because technically he was wearing it …it just wasn’t attached to anything. Hmm, the judge explained to him in court that, yes, the law didn’t specifically state the belt had to be “attached” BUT the intent of the law was to protect drivers and his job was to follow the intent of the law. So basically that was a $126 smart ass idea. In his defense Weigand said he refused to wear a seat belt because he had a phobia about being trapped in a burning car …ala Harry Chapin. Hmm, how’s about a phobia of flying head first through a windshield straight into a tree?

Psst Yes, he wore his fake belt as he left court, just in case you were wondering!

Want sauce with that? Seriously, check out the dude in the vid…hilarious.

    …It should be his choice to wear a seatbelt or not… It does no harm to anyone appart from maybe himself….IF he has an accident…… even then it depends on the circumstances as to whether he ends up with his head through the windscreen or not. Having an airbag explode into your face sending your nose through your skull is the first obstacle in the way before the windscreen…belted up or not…..hmmm…

    I ‘ve heard (not sure about this) some states allow you to ‘get around’ such laws by driving a ‘classic car’ – produced before seat belt legislation became … umm… legislated. While driving sans-seat belt is probably not a great idea, I’m more concerned with all the phoning/texting etc. drivers I see on the road.
    Of course, a nice black belt does go with just about anything. And it’ll prevent you from tripping on your pants. Which is nice. I think. 🙂

  3. It was somebody else! It always is. 😉

    Are you beginning to get the hint that Kansas has more than our fair share of nutjobs?

  4. Hearts and Doctors Kill more people then guns. Maybe we should band them. Or we could make it mandatory to have a license, to have a heart or Doctor. A three-month waiting period that’s it.

    Seat belts wear it or not it’s your body.
