Imagine this, you're anxious to get to a meeting where you're not even needed, but you tell your driver to hurry.

He speeds, you're not wearing your seatbelt. Other cars try to get out of your way. Your driver tries to slow down on a curve, but he loses control of the car. You crash. You're seriously hurt, need three surgeries and will be out of commission for a long time.

Besides the injuries, do you face any consequences such as a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt? The fine is $46 which you can well afford, but no ticket is issued. People on the inside say that your driver will get the blame for this accident. He had no choice. He knows that a previous driver who refused to ignore traffic regulations was removed as a driver.

It must be nice to be governor.

It is a shame he was hurt so badly, and I wish him a complete recovery. Hopefully, he will have learned his lesson and at least wear his seatbelt like everyone in his state is required to do.
