Buckle up in the back


Justice Wendell Kangaloo has paid a high price for us to learn that seat belts should be mandatory in both the front and back seats. While all other passengers escaped with minor injuries, Kangaloo, who was not strapped, was thrown from the back seat to the front and was seriously injured; all four occupants in the other vehicle died.

In the US and Canada, seat belts are mandatory—in the front and back. The Licensing Department should move swiftly to amend the regulations; this is a glaring oversight. We don't need another reminder.
