Seatbelts Really Do Save Lives
This is my husband's pick-up truck after my brother-in-law flipped it on Friday night. Luckily, he was wearing his seatbelt and reacted well and climbed out and walked away unharmed. EMTs saw the truck and figured they would have to deal with a body instead of injuries.
My plea to you... wear your seatbelt, they really do save lives!!
This is crazy, crazier part is that I was on 78 an hour before this happened.
I will make sure to click it when i get in the car for sure from now on.
Click it or Ticket in California......Your Husband is a very lucky man....Glad everything worked out good on your family side Laney!!
I never wore a seatbelt, but will not put the car in drive without my belt since friday night.
Crazy thing is my brother-in-law never wears a seatbelt but his wife got pulled over and got a ticket for not wearing her belt on Wednesday and he had that in mind on Friday.
I always wear my seatbelt. It's just common sense. I have seen way to many wrecks(and been in a few) to not wear one. To be so naive to think nothing can happen is just stupid. Just a few months ago a guy was struck head on and killed when a girl fell asleep and then over corrected and lost control. He was just driving to work. 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
Great news that your Bro in law is safe!
And your husband got mad at you for hitting a rock? :no:
Glad everyone is safe though.
:lmao: we joked that my bro in law did this to make my rock incident not look so bad

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.
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.
i can understand your reasoning brett but i would go with the percentages.
