Doors off! Wear your seatbelt!

A Brantford man was drunk and fell out of his buddies Jeep TJ when he made a turn, surprise! In the hospital with life-threatening injuries now.

Brantford police officer charged after Hamilton man suffers life-threatening injuries in fall from vehicle

On another note, the driver was a police officer, and both were impaired too, what way to set an example... maybe they'll make one of him for a change? Or will they make taking the doors off our Jeeps illegal here the punishment for their stupidity?

Here in the US they would make it legal for cops to drive drunk and make it illegal to drive without doors seat belts or not.

Darwinism is TRYING to weed out the stupid, but we just keep making laws to prevent it. Eventually our society will be like in the movie Idiocracy.

I swear by my seatbelts. I always have my doors and top off since I trashed my replace a top hardware. I have thrown myself out of the drivers seat of my jeep descending into a dried up creek bed those 33x12.50's hurt like a bitch when they run over your legs. Since that incident I buckle up every time I get in it even if I'm driving to the back yard to spray it off. I just think about the possibility of if it stalled out on top of me and my cell phone being in the console what could have happened.

It's already illegal to remove doors in BC. The statute says"any vehicle manufactured with doors must have doors installed". The fine is $86.

Only the CJ5/6... Etc are allowed to go door less.

Not here in Alabama. Hell all you are required to have is one mirror and a functional muffler (oops) and wear your seatbelt at all times the engine is running regardless if the vehicle is moving or not. As for me I'm straight piped and dumped with a 90 right behind the belly pan lol. My windshield is busted all to hell cause a buddy of mine hit her head on the right side of the WS a few moments after I asked her to put on the shredded seatbelt.

So do motorcycle helmets and reasonable hurdles to gun access but that has not helped. Some people just can't wait 24 hrs to kill someone, and some start early in life with Uzi's. Others think that when they turn into a vegetable it is only their problem.

This thread is veering into territory that will likely start a flame war, and I realize that I am contributing to this... but... sure, the parents didn't do their job, but you can't let the establishment off the hook either. I can't find the link anymore, but if I recall correctly after the accident the proprietor of the establishment said he sees no problem with the practice and that in the past he has given gun instructions to 6-year olds!?!?!?


In this country you can't even BE PRESENT in a bar if you are under 21, you can't see a boob under 16, and you are scarred for life if god forbid some moron rapper uses the F-word on TV, but I guess the founding fathers said it is your birthright to shoot an Uzi shortly after you learn how to walk. Or maybe at birth, I don't know any more.

No. By all means it was the idiot that handed the 9 year old the uzi's fault. What kinda idiot does that? My point was... As a parent, A responsible parent, why would you let your 9 year old attempt to shoot a effing uzi. Not blaming the parents BUT they are the ones who put her in that position.

I agree. This reminds of the little boy, about 6 yrs old, I think, who had unsupervised access to his .22 rifle and and accidentally killed his little sister. Happened about a year ago, as I recall. Made the national news. I have no problem with teaching the kid to shoot but at least put a trigger lock on it when you're not supervising him.

I would say this was more of a booze related incident than a seat belt incident

It is a shame that some one had to lose their life
After reading above this is an alcohol related incident
Unfortunately law makers don't look at the reason but often look at the outcome and enact laws to "protect the public from ourselves"
Let's make sure we stand together and watch out law makers that "mandatory door laws" are not enacted like motor cycle helmet laws have become "normal" in a lot of states
