Question Do you buckle up??

After watching some news reports on TV and also seeing the commercials for the Highway Patrol's "Click it or Ticket" campaign, I was curious how many of you wear your seatbelt. Also, if you don't regularly wear your seatbelt, why?

I also wanted to put out the public service announcement that many life insurance policies will not pay out to next of kin if the deceased was killed in a vehicle accident and they were not wearing their seatbelt. In case you didn't know.

So, what's the deal?

Absolutely yes. I have been buckling up since day 1, with no intention on changing. Even on quick trips I strap up.

I don't see why so many people don't wear seatbelts. I feel "naked" without my seatbelt on.

I always click in, my gf makes fun of me because even if we are only going down a driveway, its funny but hey I dont give up my first line of defense in my safety ever, I only remove the belt if I really need to get something and I'm in the backseat and I can't reach. But I always put it right back on. Even if we are parked I leave it on because my friend got rearended when he was parked and he got a concusion from hitting his head into the windshield.

Absol-friggin-lutely! I think most of us have seen what happens when one is not properly functionized...that's a word, right?

I also believe that most of us were raised to do so my our folks, even though at the time we fought against it, cause it wasn't 'cool'...

Always Always Always.

But how many remember being a kid and playing in the floorboard as you were traveling down the road, or sleeping up in the rear window. Our parents were crazy.

Yes always....Unless i am moving my car around the property up north, or going to my neighbors, (our driveways connect....) but half the time i still wear it.

The only time i don't is when there isn't one..and that is only on the Motorcycle.

The only time i have been glad to hear of someone who died was when they killed a neighbor up north. She hit him head on in her Trailblazor when he was on his motorcycle. She was drunk, and i am glad she died. Because she took his life, and half of his wifes. His wife lost her whole right side. He lost his life, and it was a closed castket, because they never found 20% of him....
