I absolutely agree, belts save lives and Stossel's use of hyperbole, giving him the benefit of the doubt, weakens his argument, but what exactly is his argument? Is it about seat belts? I didn't get that. It was about the appropriate levels of interference an external government should have over our being allowed to make these decisions for ourselves. His point is that, left to the individual to decide, auto makers would create safer vehicles as a selling point, insurance companies would offer incentives to promote safer behavior, and in general, things would be better than they are from lawmaker mandates.
