You pansies making a big deal about disabling a seatbelt chime are something else. You may not be aware, but a seatbelt chime is a "convenience" feature, not a regulated safety item. It's not always so convenient especially considering it will chime even if you are sitting still.

Even IF someone intended on driving down a busy public road without a seatbelt it's THEIR issue and nobody elses. Seatbelt laws may be benevolent by intent but if there is ANY domain whatsoever that an individual should have final say - it's their body. For Christ's sake I'm willing to bet those concerned about his seatbelt are also "pro-choice". If this is the case - congratulations for being the biggest hypocrite known to man.

FYI for those who prefer personal choice, freedom and a general lack of rude, opinionated pricks:

if your seatbelt switch is normally open - you can disconnect it and jump it to fool the vehicle into thinking it's always buckled

if your seatbelt switch is normally closed - you can just disconnect it to fool the vehicle.

However, the rude, opinionated pricks who think they know better or think anyone cares what they think aren't fooling anyone.
