Quote Of The Day: Why No Seatbelt? Edition

Sometimes news stories don’t need commentary. This little item, from orange.co.uk, seems like one of those stories:

Simona Suhoi, 28, faces up to five years in jail after police found her behind the wheel a month after she was banned from driving.

The former singer and designer, who is known as Simona Sensual, was pulled her over for not wearing a seatbelt in her home city of Bucharest.

She said: “I admit I shouldn’t have driven the car but I had no other choice.

“You see, I was having terrible pains in the chest, I think it was because of these brand new breast implants.

“I tried to get a taxi but they were all busy so I jumped into the car and dashed for the clinic. I mean, what was I supposed to do?”

And aren’t two airbags safer than one seatbelt anyway? You’ve been a great crowd, don’t forget to tip your waitresses.

    Experience tells me no license and no insurance often leads to fleeing after a wreck. Seen too often with illegal aliens along with those who had a license but it was yanked. Victimless? Uhhh... need I state the obvious? "Oh, just sue!!!!" Yep..... those type of folks typically loaded with dough, right?

    Here in Maine they're now going to make not wearing a seatbelt a secondary offense, like it once was. So Implants Mcgee should come here I guess. A secondary offense means that a cop can no longer pull someone over primarily for not wearing a seatbelt. I was a little pissed when I first heard about it, but then I realized that natural selection will take care of people that can't be bothered to put it on. Same thing applies with the lack of a motorcycle helmet law here. Smart people wear seatbelts and helmets, and the dull ones don't and suffer the potential consequences.

    I'm thinking about offering car services to those who needs a ride to their surgeon for new breast implants inspection. Of course, I'll be the owner & chauffeur as well.
