do you always wear a seat belt, when you are riding alone in your personal car?
I did ironically until I started driving the brown truck. Now I find myself often not wearing one in my personal car after putting it on and taking it off so many times all day. I do when my kids are in the car always to set an example.
as you certainly should; that's why i specified alone
Not wearing a seat belt in any vehicle is just plain stupid. Doesn't matter who is with or not with you. You are just a flying piece of junk in a wreck and the seat belt will hold you in place.
Hubby knew a C.H.I.P. who said he never unbuckled a dead man from a seat belt in his career.
Don't be stupid. The accident you are in may not be your fault......it'll be some idiot when you least expect it!!
I agree seat belts should always be worn. I was just saying I often find myself not doing it in my personal car since becoming a driver but it is not intentional or some kind of rebellion. I know I need to focus on getting back to always wearing it.
Always.Feel weird without it. Hard to imagine driving around my dad's 1960 D100 without them.Different times.I nearly got killed in the very same truck as a toddler when I ricochceted off the all steel dash when somebody pulled out in front and he dynamited the brakes.
I always have since I was a kid. However, now as I am a wee bit older I sometimes pop it off when I'm inside my development. I always wear it when I'm driving at ANY kind of real speed, though.
When I was younger I rarely wore my seat belt. As I got older I put it on more often. Then 5 years ago I was in a horrible accident. Someone pulled right out in front of me from a side street when I was almost right on top of them. Full impact driving at about 40 MPH. I had the belt on thankfully. If I didn't have it on there isn't a doubt in my mind I would be dead. Now it goes on every time. Cant even drive without it. It feels weird
Always now days when I am alone and any passengers will wear them or walk.
The older cars did not have them, very scary when I think about it.
My 1964 4-door Belair had lap belts in the front, none in the rear.
I've always worn my seatbelt since I was a little kid. Even when my dad, who was a State Trooper, didn't. He finally did after me bugging him enough. Putting on a seatbelt is a habit I got into long before I started at UPS and will continue to be one until the day I die (hopefully not in a car accident)
It's a habit now so I use it all tge time.
That's not the only bad habit you have!!! While driving!!!!! I don't think your seatbelt will help.
Everytime I start the ignition.
Feel naked without it on.
Those who do not wear it each time they drive, I just do not understand what they think.
It's like you know me
LOL...I like you but I will never shake your hand...!!!
yup. Feel naked without it. Thank you Ups
Yes , its the law.
I always wear a seatbelt----and I wear a helmet while riding my motorcycle. That being said I'm also a firm believer in a persons right to not wear one if the choose so.
