Some may call this nit picking but I call it a reckless disregard for the rule of law. It seems people have been finding images and videos where Deric is driving around and not using his seat belt.

EVERY state in the US has a mandated seatbelt law. NC is no exception. Another point to ponder is that Deric has children in the car, most of the time. Even if the children are properly restrained, he is not. In the event of an emergency, Deric, not being restrained by a seat belt faces the danger of not being able to control the vehicle. He could be ejected from the car or otherwise not be able to protect his family by taking evasive actions to prevent a bad situation from getting worse.

Air bags do not provide sufficient protection in some situations which is why both are required to be installed in passenger cars.

By disregarding the requirement to wear his seat belt, Deric is placing his family, and other motorists at an unnecessary risk.
