In September 2019 Kevin Hart, his trainer, and his trainers girlfriend were in an accident that totaled Kevin’s 1970 Plymoth Barracuda. Kevin and his personal trainer were both injured in the accident.

At the time of this posting the accident is still under investigation. Alcohol has been ruled out as a factor. However, California may be considering new laws for modified vehicles driven on the street as a result of this incident, mainly to include some kind of safety restraint in vehicles that are modified like Kevin’s was.

For the most part, I’m a live and let live kind of guy, but in my opinion, if you’re going to drive a car with that much power on the street without seatbelts, you’re asking for trouble.

What do you think? Does California have a point?
