How 'CLICK-IT OR TICKET' Keeps You Safe

Hypothetical situation:

Q: What happens if I get pulled over and I am not wearing my seat belt?
A: They write you a ticket and ask you to sign it

Q: What happens if I refuse to sign?
A: They will ask you to get out of the car

Q: What happens if I don't get out of the car?
A: They will pull you out of the car and taser you

Q: What happens if I resist and try to get away?
A: They will taser you again

Q: What happens if I continue to struggle until they run out of taser shots?
A: They will wrestle you to the ground and handcuff you

Q: What happens if I break free before I am handcuffed?
A: They will chase you

Q: What happens if I get in my car and manage to get away?
A: They will get in their car and chase you down?

Q: What happens if I don't stop?
A: They will ram your car

Q: What happens if I try to defend myself?
A: They will shoot you

Q: So, what is the reasonable conclusion of not obeying the seat belt law?
A: Your car gets wrecked and you get shot

Q: Why does this law make me more safe?
A: Because obeying it means you don't get shot
