An Auckland woman has been filmed refusing to wear a seatbelt because she said it doesn’t fit across her waist.
The driver questioned the point of wearing it, and said that if she was fined it could be seen as discrimination against overweight people.
“I can’t fit it, so what’s the point of wearing it. If they’re going to give me a fine for not fitting my seatbelt, that’s just being racist, to the fat people,” she said.
Oh dear, I did giggle when I read it. I never knew being fat was now a race.
I would also point out you can get a seat belt extender for around $20.
