Do you feel the same way about seat belts.?
Evidently Dalton Hanson walked away from the family hunting camp (unarmed and not dressed for cold weather) after an argument with his stepfather. Let's pray that he hooked up with friends or other hunters, and is out there somewhere alive and well.
The Petersville man was 8.5 miles from his camp, and totally lost, when they found him - amazing that he's OK. A reminder that we should all keep our navigation and survival skills honed...
You can't even get 100% compliance with something that is free with every vehicle, attached and cannot be removed, and is always just a reach away for passengers.
No way you'd get compliance with mandatory PLBs.
Are you saying that you don't think EMS should respond to accidents where someone didn't wear a seatbelt?
