Seatbelt? Xkuse Meeee!!!!

I was driving to Fortress a couple of hours back and on the crossing near stadium that traffic police guy was peeping into every car and asking people to restrain themselves by wearing their seatbelts. When he was approaching me I started feeling a lump in my throat, God, he is going to say this or that and gonna make me feel weird in front of my guests but when he came near he said something which I hardly caught, and the prominent word was “seatbelt.”

I really liked the way he said that politely (unlike the cunning thullas) and I think that all of you would agree that wearing seatbelt is so important but still we forget to do so. I really felt good about it that they patiently educate the drivers and not surprisingly IT IS more effective.

Any idea how they would be after five years?

    Motorway Police has survived and consistently expanded it’s goodwill enormously for the last 8 years… Hence, there is every reason to be optimistic! 8)

    I totally agree with the above poster (SMALIK). The system is nothing but a guideline. It is us who need to follow it, if we want it implemented.

    ‘smalik’ has made a valid point.

    However, as individuals, you, Opee, Pretty Simple or I may correct ourselves and start driving responsibly, but, what about the offenders?

    There are people in our society who are totally insensitive to discipline and consider breaking law as a deed of pride!

    ‘Latoun kay bhoot, Batoun Say nahin manatay’

    Such people need to be countered with a system that is strict in implementing the writ of law and punishing offenders like them.

    You are so right. I have been in an accident which I know I couldnt have had survived if it wasnt for the seat belt. It is so essential and people do not recognize that they need it even driving within the city. A collision at 35-40 Kmph is very dangerous since most cars here dont have air bags and no one wears a seat belt.

    Also this whole trend of young kids riding on the front seat is so dangerous. I can’t believe these mothers who have kids either in their laps or without a car seat on the front seat. Think of the consequences ladies.

    Pretty Simple, I was wondering if you would be interested in joining with me to start an awareness campaign regarding seat belts and toddlers in the front seats?

    Take a look at my blog at I used to do an online radio show, hence the name of the blog. Looking forward to your feedback.

    All the best,
