    2nd Nature

    I always wear a seatbelt so I don't die if I'm involved in a crash. It's the 1st thing I do when I get in a car.

    Family Tradition

    One of my relatives went through a windshield around 1960 and after that seatbelts were mandatory in my family. I always wear a motorcycle helmet as well. I have never seen a convincing argument for not using the safety gear.

    It's My Face That Would Catch Hell

    The first think that gets effected in a car crash is your face and mine isn't the greatest looking to start with, so any damage would make it worse I think.

    In Memory.

    I always wear my seat-belt. For safety purposes, but also in memory of my first friend. She and her mother died in a car accident, and since then I have always worn my seat-belt. In memory of her, and to keep the promise I made to her father (His daughter and I were so close we...

    That'll Do It.

    I was in a car accident two years ago. My mom and I would have both died if it wasn't for seatbelts. I religiously wear mine now. I annoy everyone in the car until they actually put it on, but sometimes all I get is a middle finger and a "**** you, mind your own business"

    I always wear a seatbelt. People who don't weat them are incredibly stupid. Why risk it? Sometime when you get into an accident, wearing a seatbelt saves you life. There's been a lot of accidents in my town and almost every time the person wasn't wearing a seatbelt. It's crazy to...

    I hate cars. I mean there are

    so many accidents. I am a paranoid backseat driver. Safety first. I always have a feeling that the one time I dont wear it, we will get into a crash. The irony.

    Not For Safety

    The reason I wear my seat belt is because I have already gotten ticketed for it and think it's a waste of money to be stubborn about it, so I comply.

    Safety First

    It's a good habit to have. It's the first thing I do when I get in my car. I always put my seat belt on before putting my key in the ignition. When others ride along with me in my car I make sure they put theirs on before we leave anywhere!

    I Always Wear My Seatbelt, And Make Others Wear It Too.

    Every time I get into a vehicle I reach for the seat belt. It's an automatic action, its as if I'm some kind of robot. I don't care how far I'm going, weather its just to the corner store, or pretty far about 3 hours away, I HAVE to buckle up, and everyone in the car has to too...

    as well. Someone posted "boring" in response to this experience. I hope that person never loses a loved one to an auto accident. They will then have a change of heart.

    I Always Wear My Seatbelt.

    I always wear my seatbelt. I can't tell the particulars of some of my stories, due to dubious legality, but let's just say I've been a few collisions with other cars and large immovable objects while wearing it, and have never been seriously hurt. I mean come on, I'll drive 140...

    When I was a little-bitty kid, the driver of a car I was in was in a fender-bender.  The force was enough to throw me almost into the passenger seat in front of me...and that was with the seat belt on!Fast forward fifteen or so years.  The memory of that long-ago accident had...

    Fanatic About It.

    There was a law that if everyone wasn't wearing their seatbelt, the driver got a ticket for each of them so that's the way I drive.  I've driven fast, I've driven by some standards recklessly and so I really believe in seat belts.  A friend on the State Patrol showed me...

    I wear my seatbelt no matter whose car I'm in. I've been in a car accident that would have killed me had I not been wearing my seatbelt. It's very important.

    I always wear my seat-belt.

    I think it is very important to wear a seat-belt, not to mention that it is the law. When I was in my car accident, they told me that if I was not wearing my seat-belt I would not be here. So I always wear a seat-belt, its just safe, and the mature and right thing to do.

    Want a Ride? Put On Your Seatbelt.

    My friend refuses to allow you into her car unless you buckle your seatbelt. Her dad didn't, so she made him get out!! :0 I think its very important, but I sometimes don't..... I try though.

    Well It Saved My Life

    When I was seventeen I was in a car accident where we stopped so suddenly I had a skinned mark on my neck from the seatbelt. I wonder what I would have looked like if I hadn't been wearing it and the windshield got its say.

    Never Going To Remove Seat Belt

    I always wear my seat belt because I never know what will happen. One moment, I may be enjoying a peaceful drive on the road. However, the next moment, I could be in an accident. I would rather have a greater chance of survival than a slim chance. I probably won't be able to...

    I've never been one to not wear my seat belt. It's always been a habit since I was a little kid. Sometimes I'll see cars out driving and kids jumping around in the backseat and I've never understood how the hell parents can let their kids do that. It's become such a habit...
