Post image for Groupon posts a t-shirt for idiots who don’t wear seat belts, regrets it.

Groupon has got itself in a bit of a snafu after their social media manager in the United Arab Emirates posted the above image of a fake seatbelt t-shirt to their Facebook page instead of his personal account. Frankly, I think that raising a fuss about this is a bit silly because it was clearly an accident, and in the image it does say “please wear seat belt while driving.” But of course in this day and age there’s no such thing as an accident so everyone has to jump on board to take a shot and act as if someone posting an image (with no link to a purchase page) is actually going to make people stop wearing seatbelts.

I can’t believe there are people out there who don’t wear seatbelts. The only time I don’t wear a belt is when I’m going down the drive at a building site I’m working on at the moment, where there are 3 gates that need opening and closing over the course of about 300 metres, it’s a single track road so I can see no one is coming, and I never get over 10mph, and even though it feels really weird to not be strapped in so half the time I buckle up anyway just out of habit. Driving without a seatbelt is just madness and I have little sympathy for people that have a collision and are injured by not wearing a belt. Same goes for cyclists, it amazes me that there are people in my local area who will go for a bike ride without a helmet on. Quick question, when did I become the guy who complains about youngsters being dangerous?
