Re: Doug Collins editorial, “Are we wasting money on educational campaigns?”
How many people would not be wearing seatbelts if it were not for the campaign? I’m a young guy, I grew up always wearing my seatbelt. And so did all of my friends.
We are all scared shitless, and feel uncomfortable or insecure without our seatbelts. I for one have never been in a serious accident, and have no good reason to wear my seatbelt because I never really imagined what happened to a 2000 lb. metal coffin at highway speeds without the videos they showed us in schools.
Just because some people choose to avoid educational seminars or are wilfully ignorant or reckless does not mean these campaigns are not working. It just means some people don’t care, and that is fine.
Also, common sense is not common. Which is clearly demonstrated almost daily by the ArmchairMayor.
