Do you wear a seat belt when you're in an automobile?

Yes, and I would even if it weren't the law. They're uncomfortable but I'd hate to die in an automobile accident just because I wasn't wearing one.

I always wear my seat belt, even if it weren't the law. I do it mainly out of habit, it's very uncomfortable for me to ride in a car without my seat belt, my mom was in an awful car wreck a year ago. I would hate for that to happen to me.

When you ride such crappy cars like we do here in Serbia, you would get use to wearing a seatbelt after you experience almost falling out of a running car because the car door opened on a sharp turn. :lol:

I feel strange without one, even if the car didn't start to beep manically.
