This is a little off op, but what are the laws on set belts in MH and do most of you wear them?

I'm not sure about the laws in various states... but the general sentiment here seems to be that they are to be worn while in the cockpit but I don't think I've ever seen anyone report being cited for moving around in the coach while underway.

Whether or not moving around inside a moving coach is a good idea or not is a different issue.

Here in the northwest, every passenger must wear a seat belt in a MoHo. But, they can drink while the vehicle is in motion (except for the driver, of course!).

I too think that people sometimes just forego common sense. My Dad had a motorcycle accident many years ago. He was wearing a helmet put it came off at some point leaving a large hole in the back of his head, but I think had he not been wearing a helmet it would have been worse. He is a firm believer like a lot of you in wearing full coverage when riding. I have been in 2 accidents since NC required seat belt usage and the second accident if I had not been wearing one I would have went through the windshield. I don't think the gov. should make you do things that common sense would show that it is a smart idea. I say it should be up to the individual.

Michigan just recently rescinded their helmet law. Which I thought would never happen. It was talked about for years as neighboring Ohio doesn't require one. But since Michigan already had a law requiring it I was surprised it was reversed. Its about as hard as getting the speed limit raised.
Dw is nurse and refers to them a donor cycles. Too many stories to even share. I will just say that she has had patients that died From head injuries falling out of a pickup truck bed in a yard. So your noggin isn't anything to risk bouncing off the pavement. But we should be free to make that choice individually
Yea for natural selection..

Washington State has no RV-specific seat belt laws- rules as given in RCW 46.61.688 govern any/all private passenger vehicles. Like most States, adults must use belts "up to the number available", but you can cram as many unbelted extras in as you like. No specific law against walkin' around, though I s'pose one will get a ticket if caught.

Not so with kids under 16- it's illegal to transport them unrestrained in any private vehicle. Period. RCW 46.61.688.1(3)

Here is a chart with some state by state information. It is dated so there have possibly been changes. I am sure you could find more up to date info if you look Seatbelt Laws

Seatbelts and drinking. Sounds like a good ideal for a bar!

If the un-belted dead people could talk I wonder what their view would be of the seat belt laws? Heck, how many live serious injured victims vote against usage of belts?
