    I always wear my seat belt. It has saved my life, thank goodness, on multiple occasions.

    I always wear a seatbelt because my car starts beeping if I don't. Eventually it just became automatic. I don't even notice I have it on anymore.

    I know someone that survived a crash because he wasn't wearing a seatbelt though. (Got flown out of the car prior to impact on a tree, the car folded around the tree and into the drivers seat. Had he still been inside he would have been mush.)

    That said, in most cases seatbelts are safer. :P

    I always wear a seatbelt, even though I can't drive. I like to be sure that in case of an accident, I have the highest chances of staying alive.

    Yes, all the time. I've cheated putting on my seatbelt as a passenger if the car's only going like 1/4mi... but that's about it.

    My mom went through two visits to Shock Trauma thanks to accidents while almost never wearing her seatbelt. Absolutely ugly and terrifying seeing her go through that.

    I always wear one; it's entirely automatic at this point.

    However, it wasn't always. When I was a kid, we only wore them when we went for a long trip on the highway...never for around town driving. Although when I was very small, my mother would allow me to stand on the front seat if I wore the seatbelt. I think that was more so I didn't wander around the car than anything. My favorite way to ride in the car as a kid was to lie down in the rear window.

    I did get a seatbelt ticket when they first became mandatory. It was so hard for me to get used to...but now it's second nature.

    Actually I used to not care when I was depressed, now that I'm happier I buckle up more often. Buckles up when driving others around yet tends to go without sometimes.

    Part of me says its uncomfortable as I got used to feeling free. The other is the depressed and rebellious aspect, considering all my family and friends have been in accidents except me, even when I'm irresponsible there is a cautiousness that ruffles my nose.

    I do it even when I feel like dying. Completely automatic. For that matter, I had driving safety so drilled into me that, even when feeling self-destructive, near-misses seriously frighten me.

    For some reason my father and uncles couldn't understand why my uncle was afraid of getting in a car accident when a couple near-misses happened on the eight hour drive to where they were, even though he planned to kill himself less than 8 hours later. I think it's similar to my always wearing a seat belt and aversion to accidents.
