I'll admit, sometimes I do forget. I need to get in the habit and put my seatbelt on before I insert the key. I have been practicing that this past two weeks.

the ONLY time they recommend you don't wear your seat belt is when your driving on a frozen lake. In case the vehicle goes thru the ice, you can exit the vehicle quicker.

As for those who don't wear it on the road, tell you what - you drive 70 mph without wearing your seat belt. then swerve to avoid a deer leaping across the highway. after you've rolled the vehicle over and crashed, lets see how well you faired.

I'll be the same people who don't wear their seat belt are also smokers and they'll claim that smoking isn't really bad for you.

In the video above, the old car prolly didnt have an engine in it! The damn fender did not even look bolted on! the thing jsut fell off. My dad had shot a 30-30 round point blank into the hood of my 67 f-100, it did no even go thru the hood! (he was sighting in the rifles scope before getting an idea of were it would shoot!)

I never used to wear mine, but due to the giving attitude a one of our states finest, (and the $127.50 fine that came with it,) I am now a faithful wearer and now feel lost without it.

Always wear my seatbelt, I've had friends in accidents who would have been killed had they not had them on.
Actually shouldn't say always, hunting season when driving in and out of our spots I don't wear one. Kind of hard to jump out of the truck quickly if we see something. Swiped a couple seatbelt clips from the autowrecker to keep the beltminder happy.

Default Re: Do you wear your seatbelt?

I usually do, But I'm getting into a bad habit of not doing it lately. If I'm driving between 25 and 35 I usually don't. Highway speeds, or on the dirt roads... I always do. Though every year here they try to enforce the law. So when the americruise comes here, they enforce it. Otherwise they hardly care.

Everybody complains about the seat belt law enforcement and the tickets it brings, but what they fail to remember is there are dumber laws.

In the state of Florida, if you have a restriction on your license for corrective lenses and you do not have them on while driving, it is a criminal offense for violating a driver's license restriction and you can be arrested for it at the discretion of the officer.

My belt is always buckled initially to keep the warning quiet. The first time it interferes with me leaning forward to look past the B pillar it comes off. A split second decision one wet November night coming up a rise just south of Slippery Rock the rack in the road was going to lose. Lucky for me I didn't hit him flush broadside but if I swerved a house would have got Teeboned. Choices
