Do you think about wearing a seat belt more since becoming a mom? Would you wear a seat belt if it wasn't required by law?

Always. My little brother died 10 years ago. If he had been wearing his, he would still be alive.

Always wear it! It's the law. And I'm setting a bad example for my children.

 Always. I feel naked without it.

It's the first thing I do when I sit in the seat, unless I have to adjust the seat (dh likes it waaaaay back). I did this before I had my first child.

I do believe that I wear my seatbelt more since becoming a mom. I ALWAYS wear mine.my grandfather was in a wreck when I was in elem. school. a drunk driver hit him and he was never the same. I saw what this did to my family and would never want that for mine.

I always wear a seatbelt and when I'm driving the vehicle doesn't move until envy one is buckled up.  This is not a ne rule for me....since I got my driver's license I have never allowed anyone to be unbuckled in my car.  And if I'm driving with someone else, I remind them to wear their seatbelt as well.

After having been in an accident only 6 months after getting my license when I turned 15 I was grateful for wearing a seatbelt. The car I was in and the type of accident itself had a lot to do with me not getting any injuries, however I believe it could have been worse if I hadn't had it on. I have always worn a seatbelt and always will, regardless of the situation.

 I have always worn a seatbelt.Becoming a mother didn't make me more diligent about wearing one.It is the law around here but if it wasn't we would still wear them.

I have always worn a seatbelt. It saved my life when I was a teenager. My mom, sister and I were in a 5 car accident (we were in the middle, the third car) on an icy day in January 1999.

I have always worn my seatbelt. Every time. Buckle up or my car is not moving...
