Staten Island Ferry Crash, Some New Yorkers Blame Obama
Many said that regulations should be put into place for seatbelts and airbags. As this obviously isn't the first time a ferry had issues. Last year in July a ferry came head-to-head in St. George becuase the transformer cut out and the boat lost power.
Before I go into my thoughts, I'd like to say that I am happy to hear that no serious injuries occured. I could understand this being a concern for those who take the ferry regularly as it is a major mode of transportation. Especially if that's how you get to work or if your a visitor.
Now, I fail to see how this is the fault of the president. Sure, we have much to discuss on other issues involving him, but as far as regulations go, I wouldn't imagine the president being cause to blame. I'm sure if there were any regulations to be put into effect, the governor could help with that.
Next, seatbelts and airbags? Airbags, okay. Seatbelts, no. I take seatbelts on ferry's like I would seatbelts being on the majority of school buses. The reason they aren't there is becuase if anything happens and that belt doesn't work, you'll need a knive or something similar to get out. Maybe if you have an infant. You'll be able to get them out otherwise.
My prayers go out to those hurt by this incident. May you recover quickly.
