So, do you wear your seatbelt, or do you put your full trust in your tek's crash test safety ratings?

I never used to...but for some reason I've just started to wear it all the time.

Always use it, in everything I've ever driven or ride in. It's all about ME and being SAFE! :laugh:

I feel "wrong" without it on too... even if just moving around a driveway/parkinglot.

It is the seatbelts that adds up to the ratings the Tek achieved.  Without the belts on, the dummies would be ejected.   I can say for certain that seatbelts have saved my life already once.  I had to stop on a highway as traffic just stopped.  I was rear-ended by another car doing at least 55mph ( thats what he told the State Police as they impounded his wreck)- I was stopped.  I was in a Hyundai Elantra.

Better safe than sorry.  I was riding in a friends van on a back road one day and we got into some loose gravel.  We flipped the van three times and slammed into the side of the mountain.  Had it not been for the seat belt, and the airbag, i would not be able to post this fun story.  FYI, that accident also sealed the deal for me always having a cell phone.  I had the cell phone on my lap when the wreck started, and when we ended, the phone was still in the same spot.  Divine placement I guess.

I always were my seat belt.

I work at a Towing/Auto repair company that also does police impounds so I see all the wrecked cars that come in from accidents, and see the guy's faces when they come back from a bad accident where someone was hurt, it's not good. I don't want them coming to find me somewhere should I happen to be involved in an accident.

When my son was 3, he's now almost 28, I told him to put his seatbelt on and he asked me why I didn't wear mine. I've worn it all the time since.

Sorry, Im the black sheep when it comes to that question. The only time I put mine on is when the hubby is in the tek with me. ( That way I dont have to hear him NAG about it). To me the seatbelt it a pain in the azz. I enjoy the trip going through the windshield.

Well heck with plastic surgery and all the other things these days... who needs to worry right...    :banghead:   :banghead:  NO NO NO, NOT THE RIGHT ATTITUDE  That pretty face should not have to go through reconstruction...  Or anyone for the matter.

Had to think about it, but I remember when I started wearing mine. I was that way too but a buddy did his senior project over automobile safety....and his main focust was seatbelts. After seeing some of his research and such...that's when I started wearing mine.
