Aloha Friday Seat Belts

If you’ve never heard of it, it started over on An Island Life.

I ask a question….I answer it….and then you answer it too!
Sound like fun?
So, for this week’s question:

Q: Do you wear your seat belt every time you get in the car?

A: Always. I didn’t always though. I never wore my seat belt when I was younger. I don’t know why. When I became pregnant I thought it would be safer and started wearing it. After having Johnny it felt funny to not wear it. I also think it sets a good example for my boys. My husband, however, refuses. He says it’s not safer. Managing an auto body and having a bad car accident where the seat belt would have actually killed him he feels he is well enough educated to make the choice on his own. He doesn’t think the government should be allowed to force him to wear it. The kids we both believe should be buckled all the time.

  1. My answer is almost the same as yours… As I got older I started to wear it.

  2. Naomi says

    ALWAYS. Here in australia it is illegal not to actually. Infect the driver will get fined for every person in the car not wearing a seatbelt.

    • Jennifer says

      Its the same here in the US.

  3. Chloe says

    I always have. I just feel weird without it. When I was younger my family called me the seatbelt police, as I always reminded everyone to buckle up. What a little nerd-bird! Lol!

  4. Becca says

    I wear a seat belt 99% of the time. Laws are strict in CA and the two front seats ding forever if you don’t wear one.

    • Jennifer says

      HAHA my husband actually took the time to disconnect his so they don’t make that noise. Otherwise they go off every two minutes.

  5. Yes, always.

  6. Yes, it is habit. I grew up here in OR and we had very early seatbelt laws. So, I don’t remember a time when I didn’t buckle up.

  7. Yes. I always do. It’s like 2nd nature.
    The kids are doing the same and I”m proud too.

  8. Yes. I always wear one, even when I’m in the backseat.

  9. Deborah says

    Yes, I do. Even though I live in the country and there is little traffic. It’s just good practice.

  10. yes always! click i or ticket!

  11. Jenny says

    Yes, I always have.

  12. ALWAYS here, too. My hubby rarely wears his – though if Princess Nagger’s in the car, she’ll nag him to put it on until he does. 😉

    Always. And it surprises me when my teenage son’s friends get in the car and I have to ask them to buckle up. What’s up with that??

  14. Yes, I was in a car accident stopped at a light and it was the car and belt that saved my life. Since that time I make sure to always wear one if it is available.

  15. Faith says

    I always wear a seatbelt.

  16. Kayla says


    Seriously, I’ve tried NOT wearing it before, and I can’t. I nearly have an anxiety attack O.o I don’t quite think that’s a normal reaction, but hey, whatever keeps me safe, right?

    Happy Friday!

  17. Most definitely.

  18. Tom says

    Well they say it’s the law so I guess I better. Have a great weekend. Already following you.

  19. kailani says

    YES! It’s such a habit that I can’t drive without it!

  20. Jennifer H says


  21. Donna B. says

    *hangs head in shame* no, not always, although I do wear it now more than I used to.

  22. I always wear my seat belt. Always!! You never know when you could be in an accident. Most accidents happen within a mile of your home or destination.
