You think he had any idea a girl was gonna smash into him that morning. Just because you think you are a safe driver doesn't mean the millions of people around you are. Wear your seatbelt.

    End of rant

    Glad you bro-in-law is OK Laney

    Im the opposite. I don't wear my seat belt. I've had a close friend die (burned to death) because she had her seat belt on and could not escape. Ya, its a small percentage of how many die due to their seat belt being on but I dunno. I won't wear one.

    Laney, I am glad he is ok!!

    Wow Laney that is amazing. I am so happy to hear that everything turned out ok.

    The California Highway Patrol just finished a two year study and found that by wearing your seatbelt, you increase your chances of surviving a crash by 89%.

    Be smart everyone, use your seatbelt, they really do save lives.

    side note:
    anyone watch the tv show "the sharks"? it's a show where people with inventions try to get investors to back them with money. last week a guy had invented a device that wouldn't allow the car to be started unless the belt was clicked. sounds like a pretty good idea to me for car manufacturers to start implementing the device in new vehicles.

    Yeah I did see that one, pretty cool idea. Did you see the next episode where if a car detects you have a BB in your pocket the car won't start either

    Glad to hear he is ok. I never used to wear my seatbelt but my wife would give me a hard time and I started to wear it. Now I always put it on out of habit.
