Wear Seatbelts? - Poll

I'd like to get a reality check on myself. I think everyone inside the coach should be wearing seatbelts.

If we're moving, seat belts are on. Kids are allowed to get up for the bathroom if we're on flat, open road. DW can make her own decisions about when to get up and move around, but is buckled when seated.

No I don't! If I am going out the window, I don't want to take the seat with me!

I wear seat belts in my car most of the time but not always. When I drive the MH almost never. I know it's the law and I know it's safer but I just don't. I have no issue if the wife gets up to make us a sandwich while driving. I don't care if she has to use the bathroom while going down the road.

Call me foolish or whatever.

Us AND the dog are belted in.

Besides, why give your life insurance company a reason NOT to pay.

No where in my Life Insurance Policy do the words seat belt appear...At one time auto policies increased the coverage if you were injured while wearing a seat belt but that left with the arrival of air bags.

For the OP- Always wear seatbelts. Let driver know if moving around.
