I like to know that everyone is strapped in when heading down the road. Keeps my mind at ease while driving. If someone needs to get up I want it on a straight stretch of road.

I hate wearing them in car, but the noisy warning things make you. No way am I wearing them in MH!

I was the same way, until I had a near death experience in the 80's that changed my mind.

I always wear mine as does the person in the passenger seat but in the back of the coach we never wear them. Everybodys usually laying around on the couch's or bed.

I had a wreck in 1972 not wearing a seat belt. My face left a bubble in the windshield, body hit the steering wheel, knees left imprints in the dash. Since then I always wear seat belts.

When our grandchildren were young I had them convinced that the car wouldn't move until they buckled up, if I ever have an accident I better be wearing it or I'll have to face five angry grandchildren.
You have to love them
You better protect them

All the time in all vehicles. In California it's a large fine for not wearing them and the insurance companies will deny medical claims if in an accident and it was proven you weren't wearing them. Passengers can file suit against drivers who didn't insist even though they were told, go figure. Many documented cases of it happening.

That's a good one.

My son thinks the stereo in my truck is magic. He can change stations and control the volume by simply waving his hands in front of it (steering wheel controls).

I am against the seat belt laws just as I am against Helmet laws. I don't feel the government has the right to force me to do something that by not doing will only effect myself. I could see if my insurance company said they would not pay unless I was belted in, but not the government....With that said, being a member of the Fire Service for 43 years and seeing first hand what can happen if you don't buckle up, I wear a seat belt every time I am in a moving vehicle.....Stay safe...

I agree with you to a point. I think the problem is with stupid parents. In an ideal world every parent would teach their kids to be safe anywhere from having sex to wearing a seatbelt. A lot of parents out there just don't give a damn and why the government had to step in to try and save the lives of those uneducated people. The same thing could be said about the government forcing parents to put their kids in school.
