Always wear them. I put shoulder belts in my '33 sedan, even though the law says I don't have to.

Always. I have used seat belts religiously ever since the first time I saw a wrecked car with bloody head prints in the windshield.

Itīs a good poll but Iīm sure it would be different if asking the "general public".
We all tend to well informed about the consequences of not wearing seatbelts,
just as we over maintain our rides as well.
Most donīt even consider it.
Although itīs a fineable offence here as is using a cell phone or children on the laps of front seat passengers I see it being done.

I donīt mind wearing a seatbelt but airbags I donīt like at all.

I've had and used seat belts for about as long as they have been around. I even feel strange while moving the vehicles around the driveway if not buckled up. My '31 by age, legally in NY State, doesn't require them but I built a separate reinforcements into the floor just for seat belts as well as a double shoulder harness which unfortunately cannot be used. I will soon be adding a different shoulder arrangement. In my history of friends, three killed and several injured that thought they were invulnerable. One was run over by his own car after going off the road, having the door open somehow - with zero car damage. Two impaled by the steering column. Then a girl friend, thrown out, badly injured - but only $400 car damage.

In NY State - seat belt use required and no cell phone use (or texting) - as it can get expensive. Then there is the stupidity of not wearing/using devices that are proven to prevent injury or worse

I always do in my camaro. My truck just just has lap belts so I don't wear them in it. If I am riding in a vehicle I usually do not wear them

next time your driving in a parking lot.. look at the fronts of the vehicles today. and the shear height of 80% of them..
I don't fear a head on as much as a tee bone as most of these vehicles are so high or just huge.. that any side structure in the doors it's just gonna go over..
they try to fix this with the 6 foot tall belt line. todays cars have.. but
I ca tell you that my car the roof is about as tall as a lot of todays cars trunk lids.. and they(todays drivers) don't look for small vehicles in the mirror.. god bless bikers..
trucks can't even see me and I'm glad for great brakes so as they swap lanes I can hit the binders and get out of they way.. but that's at somepoint gonna get the car rearended..
this car is not that low. and isn't lowered.. but is old enough that todays cars make it look tiny.. and it doesn't gt better with drivers that never drove when all the cars where these size and not the size of a blazer like most of todays compact cars.that really are not all that compact..
I saw a mid 80's caprice wagon today beside a compactish "crossover" the wadon was smaller.. and not by a littlebit... other than overhang(railroad tie bumper style)

I had been wearing seat belts routinely years before the law said I had to. When they passed the seat belt law the rebel in me wanted to stop using seat belts but common sense won out. I know a lot of people that won't wear them though.

Hey Big Dog,

Apparently, the posts in the "Lounge" STILL don't count.

But yes, I always wear my seatbelt. They DO save lives.

Foolish, if you ask me b'cuz this is where I do most of my postin'!

Thanks,

Jay K.
