Lee County- Neither Sanspree nor Guy Tanner was wearing a seatbelt. Georgia law states pickup and S.U.V. occupants don't have to wear a seat belt unless they're under the age of 17.
The Georgia State Patrol believes Tuesday night's crash makes a case for why the law should be changed. Each year, some lawmakers try to expand the seat belt law to include pickups and S.U.V's. The brakes were put on the bill again this year. Regardless of the law, the State Patrol encourages everyone to buckle up.
"It is straight politics that's all it is. There's no reason for, there's no safety issues that pickups are safer then a minivan, or S.U.V., or car, nor a pick up. Any moving motor vehicle is dangerous, you should always wear a seat belt no matter what type of vehicle your riding in," said Sgt. Jamie Sullivan, G.S.P. Safety Education Unit.
Sgt. Sullivan says because Georgia doesn't require pick-up or S.U.V. occupants to buckle up, the state loses 21-million dollars a year in federal highway money.
