Different spin on seatbelts...

I know some of us are immortal but for those of you who aren't, check out this video the guy put together himself since seat belts were important to him. I found it touching as uncool as that may sound...

Re: Different spin on seatbelts...

I actually feel naked without one in a car. My issue, although much better now... whenever I get into a pickup truck with bench seats, dammit just cannot remember. If there is bucket seats, no problem. WTF is that?

But what I HATE even more, stupid parents that let their kids run around in the back seats. Even if you are dumb enough to not wear one, make damn sure your kids are wearing them. So at least someone will grow up safer and more intelligent.

I feel naked without one too. Even when I drive the forklift at work, it's a habit to reach over for the seatbelt.
What I can't stand is when someone reaches over for the belt and doesn't buckle up. They just drive around holding the belt right by the buckle.
Just buckle it up already, you're already there!

Re: Different spin on seatbelts...

The time I've ever routinely driven without a seat belt was when I used to work the power lines. Even then, it was hard to get used to not putting them on. Realized how much time I was wasting every day when I had to put on/take off my seatbelt 200 times a day. I was on private or rural roads anyways, even the company's safety policy didn't require seatbelt usage on the worksite.

Trouble is.... accidents happen when least expected.

Well, the max speed I went in that truck during the day was probably 10-15 mph. Basically just idling pole to pole (no homo).

Re: Different spin on seatbelts...

I have to admit... in my other car (1996 Thunderbird) I only ever wear my belt when im on the highway.

The reason I wear it all the time in this one is because that seat belt light and chime is so damn annoying haha. I know I can turn it off, but I suppose this way im forced to wear it if i leave the function engaged.

Does your T-bird have electric shoulder belts? My 1990 did, took me a while to remember to buckle the separate lap belt.

Now.... how would you think anyone would pull HOMO out of that

I used to be bad for putting one on... then I had a kid. They get to the 4-5yr mark and start noticing things.... guess what. They get after you to put it on.
