        But why do police not wear their seatbelt?

        1- because they are above the law
        2- they are less likely to be in a car accident
        3- they never speed / drive in a dangerous manner
        4. NHI (tax payer) pays their medical bills
        5. they too big to get belt around them
        6. because its not 'cool' to where seat belt

    Maybe time for a mandatory maximum weight limit for police officers.

    That accident was obviously the fault of the Kia driver not the police. I must say of all the interactions I have had with the BVI Police I have found them courteous, friendly, helpful and professional. Please support your local police as they put their lives on the line for us everyday.
