    Same here. In the rare instance I start driving without a seat belt on I'm immediately thinking, "What am I forgetting ..."

    Seriously everyone - you can be the best driver ever and someone else could cause an accident. Many times a seatbelt is the difference between life and death.

    Always. I just don't feel right unless I'm wearing it. Probably because I've been wearing them for as long as I can remember. I even tried to drive a few blocks once without it, and I had to put it on after the first one.

    Cheers,

    Yep always, saved my life a few times too I imagine. In my opinion, you gotta be just dumber than shit to think it's safer to be thrown out of the car, or you won't be able to free yourself under water...and if you think it looks uncool or your clothes will look bad, then you likely have a self esteem problem you need help for as well.

    I wear mine all the time in my own vehicles and when it is possible without huge discomfort, but in some cars/trucks its not a option like Emmy Rose's truck. I always have to sit in the back (try fitting a bear like luni in the back seat) the belt doesnt work so I go without.

    I always wear mine, even for a very short drive on the road. If I'm just moving the car in or out of the garage...I probably won't, or if I'm parked and just sitting in it. But whenever I get on the road, it's on.

    I never wore them until I was in the military - USAF - there they ingrained in my head to wear them every time I would enter or leave the base.

    Since then - it is like I am naked if I don't have it on - just a "gut reaction" type of thing.

    I always wear mine, I grew up in the 80's and Im asian so I was a natural target for cops. You didn't have to wear them in the early 80's till the mid 80's they made it law and I would always get pulled over for no reason and they would always try and bust me for not wearing my seatbelt so it kind of stuck and now its on before I even know it. I have been known to try and get out of the car forgetting to remove it. ouch!

    I should wear mine, but never bother... I do wear it on long trips though.

    I've disabled the reminder in my truck and there isnt a reminder in my Celica.

    I feel naked without one on, very awkward feeling if you forget to put it on before you start driving.
    However .... if i'm going a very short distance and not on any roads (such as parking lot to parking lot) then i usually wont put one on. Still feel really weird without one.

    I also always wear them and they save me few times. It doesn't matter how good driver you are if other driver is dumb and make accident. I doubt you will feel better if get in hospital and know that accident wasn't you fault.
    Around year ago i totaled volvo S80 T6 (2.8 biturbo) and didn't got any serious injury just because wear seatbelt.

    Frankly, you'd be stupid not to wear one whenever the car is in motion.

    Driving around a jobsite/around the corner/just up the street at maybe 20 km/r (15mph) would be the ONLY exception
