I can understand why some people (certainly not myself) choose not to wear a helmet when riding, you can smell the air, the vision is a little more open, you can feel the wind in the air, etc. That makes sense to me even though I won't be caught dead without a lid on Brian's Brain. That being said, why the hell would you NOT wear a seatbelt? Unless you're dancing in your car, there's no reason not to wear it. It keeps you safer, doesn't impede your movement (since you're not leaning or moving while driving), doesn't even cost anything like a nice helmet does, so why the hell not wear the bloody thing. At least when you have it on, it doesn't jingle around by your side.
I never let anyone ride in my car witout a seatbelt, the little things like this may save your life, since it's there and free, why not wear it. It's not like wearing a condom, a seatbelt doesn't make the driving experience dulled down.
BTW, thanks for the heads up CriminalGirl.
