Seatbelt bill is a tax on hard-working folks

I just read in The Register-Herald where the House of Delegates passed HB2108 making failure to buckle up a primary traffic offense. I certainly hope the governor doesn’t sign this bill.

Yes, seatbelts save lives, but how is law enforcement going to enforce this if 10 cars pass by and the drivers aren’t buckled up. Which one does law enforcement pull over?

Let’s just call it what it really is — another tax on the hard-working people of West Virginia. Instead of working on economic development, our so-called leaders in Charleston just created another tax.
