    Seatbelt's are not just for your safety, but for others' as well. If some asshole sideswipes you on the freeway, you'll have a better chance of remaining in control of your car if you have the seatbelt to harness you in, versus getting knocked around and letting your car fuck other people up around you.

    It's not just the law, it's a good idea! =p

    I use my seatbelt to an asinine degree. One of the jobs I used to work, we couldn't leave for "lunch". But we'd all go out to our cars anyway. I'd go and jam out and munch a few things of course. But even though my car never moved, I still put on my seatbelt... every single time... for whatever reason. Lol I got hazed about it a little bit. But it's all good.

    I have several broken teeth, have broken nearly a dozen bones, totaled more cars than many of you have ever owned and killed a woman.

    I now wear my seatbelt all the time, regardless. Even as a passenger, even if I am the only one in the car with it on.

    I wear mine all the time. I've had a couple of friends killed who weren't wearing theirs. If they had, they'd still be here today. You're pretty much guaranteed to die if you get thrown for the car, especially if the damn thing rolls over on you!

    Seat belt is part of my mental "checklist". It goes on no matter what. I won't move until everyone in car is wearing one.

    I'll usually have it on. It's usually habit to reach over & buckle it in.

    Sometimes I'll lag about it (when I'm dead ass tired and can barely walk to the car to drive to work) and will forget, but the first couple turns I make I realize I'm flopping around and I'll then snap it in.

    I hit always but in hindsight I should change that. I don't put on seatbelts moving cars up from the bay down to the service drive and vice versa. But anytime I go on public roadways and (of course) the track I wear my seatbelt.

    Every time. Childhood habit, compounded by seatbelt compliance being higher in Canada than the US.

    However, two years as a reporter in Squamish on the highway between Whistler and Vancouver cemented it. If I'm driving, the car doesn't move until everyone's buckled in.

    I learned my lesson ... driving a car with a bench seat ... on a hard right I over corrected and it snapped the rear end out .... really hard to control a car from the right side when your right foot is planted to the floor and you are hanging on to the steering wheel for dear life.

    Yes, even in modern cars wear the belt all the time ... been in a few bumps while racing and you really know what belts do then.

    I had friends that never bothered with seat belts, until they rode with my in my Buick with leather interior. I drove my Buick like I drive my Celica, so that'd be why.

    yes, always. i've seen alot of dead people that could have survived if they had buckled up. on a different note, side impacts right at the door are a whole other story. seatbelts are mainly effective in head on collisions and angle collisions.

    I have a hard time not putting on my belt even if I'm sitting parked.
    It's not that I think people should be forced into it, or even that it should be illegal, I just don't feel secure and connected to the car without it.

    I wear mine pretty much all the time, but if I am just driving down the street and not going very fast, sometimes I dont bother.

    I am a firm believer in seat belts saving lives, but I also think that it should be up to the discretion of the driver, not the law. It is just something else that the cops can use for revenue.
