Better check the seat mounting bolts...are they rusty?

It is automatic whenever I get in a vehicle to buckle up. Our grandkids come with us sometimes and they are buckled into the couch. If we need a bathroom break, we stop and stretch our legs. I make lunch when we stop, not while on the highway.

Call me foolish or whatever.
Not foolish at all. It is your right to chose. Personally, I couldn't live with myself if I or another driver did something stupid and someone got hurt in the back...especially our children.

Agree. I could be wrong, but IIRC they cannot deny compensation because you were not wearing seatbelts.

We have them on in the car always but not so in the coach. I've tried it a couple of times but it's just not comfortable for me. With my shoulder and back problems it just doesn't seem to allow me to sit square in the seat and it's not long before something starts hurting.

In the cars, we don't move until everyone is buckled up. In the MH, I wear mine while driving at all times. Passengers are buckled up if they are an a seat. If they get up to use the bathroom, as soon as they are seated the belt goes back on.

When my 6 yo complains I quickly remind him how it used to be when we traveled 1k miles in our TT.

Most policies which may include an accidental death benefit, have kick outs or reductions in payouts when a death could be attributed to failure to comply with law. Since most states have seatbelt laws in place, it can be reason to deny that benefit's payment.

Wear seat belts all the time, every time. So does anyone else in the vehicle, car or RV. I just don't feel safe without them. If a sandwich is to be made, or a potty break taken, it waits until we pull over.

When my kids were teenagers and wanted to go driving with their friends, said friends had to take me for a test drive first so I could verify their driving skills. The test started with the kid waiting for me in the car. I'd jump in and say "Let's go!" If he or she moved the car an inch without saying, "Please put on your seat belt" test was over before we left the driveway and my kids couldn't drive with them.

That would be the suicide exclusion.

It's instinctive for us, but I sure wish they were three-point lap & diagonal on an inertia reel system like our cars have had since the late 70s. We rarely travel with anyone else in the rig, but they'd have to wear them too.

An acquaintance with a Class A got pulled over by the SP and given a ticket. He asked the trooper "How could you tell I wasn't wearing it? You're four feet lower than my window." The response was "It's hanging outside the door, sir".

Seat belts, it is easy, it is automatic and it is the law so we abide.
