Stupid will get ya dead!!!!!!!!!! What's going to keep you from going through the windshield when you are involved in a head on or what will keep you from flying across to the other side of the vehicle if you get t-boned. Put your seat belt on so my brothers and sisters in the fire service don't have to scrape you into a body bag.

I have a hard time understanding peoples attitudes towards seat belts ....... Click it 99.9999999999999999999% of the time it will protect you ........ The infinatesimally small time it would be better not to have it on is just not worth the risk .......... Your friends and family probably would miss you ..... Probably.......... and it gives you the ability to stay in the drivers seat ...... maybe avoiding a worse situation by being able to control the wheel/pedals ............ It's like talking to a tree can't hear and won't move .......... DHuuuuu !!!!!!!

The odds are in your favor wearing your seat belt. I was going 70mph down a rural highway and someone in a Dodge one ton p/u ran a stop sign and I T-boned him in my little nissan p/u. It crushed the the whole front of my truck and almost pinned my legs. But because of the seatbelt I didn't go through the windshield and slam head first into the Dodge.

Also if your going to be an idiot and not wear your seat belt, then you also need to remove your airbags. Without a seat belt your allowed to go up and over the wheel around the time the airbag deploys. The shock of the airbag into your chest will crush ribs and can also cause a pericardial tear (your hear rips off the arteries its connected to.

Aside from myself I've lost count how many people I've seen that had their bacon saved by the seatbelt.

Seeing all of these makes me think they should show all of this wreckage to new drivers getting their licenses. Drivers education is nothing like it used to be.

See the front of that jeep thts why I put in a front roll cage the window and the littel bars that hold it dont do squat they just fold in and help to crush you. The roll bar in a jeep is the part thats over your head its really only ment to protect you in slow roll overs not flips!!!!!

A seat belt has saved me a couple times, I was in my buddies old YJ with doors off and someone pulled out in front of us from a hidden side street. My buddy swerved to miss him, if I didn't have my seat belt on I would've been thrown out the side!

Seatbelts can be good, but I have to say they do not always save your life, had a few friends wearing seatbelts that I have had to go to their funerals.

Wear it or don't, it still should not be a law.

I don't blame people for their mistakes, but I do expect they pay for them.

Alright you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This... is my boomstick! The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?

I have to agree. Are they a good idea...yep. But shouldnt be a law. And for all those that say if I wouldnt have had my seatbelt on I would have..... lets be real, you dont know what would have happened.

Here is 50mph + and an impact with a tree. I didnt have a seatbelt on. I wear mine all the time, but when I take the hotrods out, I dont. Cant really tell you why? My ribs and bridge of my nose asked me to please buckle up next time.

Hummmmm just went to add my pic.... and I guess I cant
