Why Do Some People Ignore Seat belts?

It's not every day that a public service announcement (PSA) goes viral on the Internet.  But on Tuesday, you're going to see a powerful PSA that did, and it's about wearing seat belts.  The video isn't particularly graphic; it doesn't show anyone actually getting hurt.  But it gets the point across very clearly that all drivers should wear seat belts - if not for themselves, then for those who love them.

You've seen PSAs like this before and heard TONS of statistics on why you should buckle up, so I'm not gonna lecture you about it.  But I do have a question:  Why do you think that, despite the danger, some people still don't wear seat belts?

    People don't wear seatbelts because they think it's not going to happen to me. People don't believe they will end up in a wreck, so they don't bother with seatbelts.

    Sometimes if you have a lot on your mind and putting your seatbelt on is the [least of your worries.] Although some people in my area have said that they got in a crash and survived because of not wearing a seat belt. It is completely ones own opinion.

    I think people ignore seat belts because they always figure they wont be the ones to get into a car crash.

    I have no idea. I mean it takes about 2 seconds to put one on. In those two seconds you can save your life. I'd rather look uncool than be badly injured or dead.

    i think why people dont wear a seat belts is because some people think it is cool and they arent smart

    People might not wear seat belts because they think that they aren't going to get hurt. That they are safe drivers and wouldn't let that happen. People also might not wear seat belts because they think that it won't save you and its just some thing that gets the government money when they don't where it. Others might think it is just a hastle to put it on, especially when your in a hurry.

    I believe that people do not wear seat belts simply because they cannot see the immediate effect of not wearing one, they think that the chance of something bad happening is very low. Older people simply aren't used to them, either.

    February 22, 2010 at 9:49 pm |

    Most of the people who don't wear their seat belts are usually the ones who are comfortable with their driving and are overly confident with their driving skills.

    people think that they won't get in a car wreck and they also think they are "good" drivers

    To buckle on seat belts is a bit bothersome and a bit uncomfortable. And people are too relaxed thinking 'what could happen?' because they haven't had any serious accidents yet.

    February 22, 2010 at 11:12 pm |
  11. Gustavo

    I believe people who don't wear seatbelts are ignorant. They don't see that by doing that they can harm others with them.

    a lot of people don't wear seat belts because they don't feel like it or they don't think they will get in a car accident,which is so naive.

    Some people don't wear seatbelts because they think they're always safe. They think "Oh, that will NEVER happen to ME" and just leave at that. Sometimes irony strikes and it does.

    February 23, 2010 at 12:59 am |
  14. Jason

    People want to believe that it will not happen to them.
    It's always someone else until its too late.
    it is sad that so many learn the hard way.

  15. DAnielle

    I personally dont think that people that dont wear seatbelts want to die neccasarly. I think its more that they never developed the habbit. Having bad habbbits ,like never putting your seat belt on are hard to break, of course untill something bad happens and, if your lucky, it becomes a habbit through fear. A habbit is a habbit and for the sake of the danger from not wearing a seatbelt, everyone should make in effort to do the right thing, click it or ticket! 🙂

    I think it's because they're sometimes too bothered or forget about wearing seastbelts. Other times, they don't take things like car accidents seriously, thinking that they'll never get hurt and don't bother wearing belts.

    I think it is ignored because the people who drive car may think it is un-fashionable. I have seen many people who use make-ups while driving and they have not used seat-belts though it is in Korea.

    February 23, 2010 at 2:26 am |
  18. Nawon

    In Korea, the fine is imposed when we didn't wear seat belts. However, sometimes people who have no sensor still don't wear seat belts when they drive in a short distance or maybe feel pesky to wear them.
    Also, in my country, there is few cases that some old people don't buckle up to dance in sightseeing buses. But fortunately, the law was established. I wish people in all over the world to perceive how important wearing seat belts is for themselves and the precious.

    February 23, 2010 at 2:40 am |
  19. Lindsey

    I think its because most people believe that they aren't the ones who will get into the accident, mostly because they trust their driving "skills."

  20. Heo

    As soon as get in a car, people do wear seat belts habitually.
    but you don't do that like you will not always clean your teeth.
    it is because, you think "it's okay , it's only this time."
    but, it is pile... pile... pile, it may be that you are piled by unexpected result .

    On the question..I wanted to tell you why I don't wear a seat belt myself. I'm 5'3 and every time I put one on the belt runs right on my neck and will rub a red mark sometimes. I've even tried the new ones wear you can move then up or down and the same thing still happens. Not to mention how tight they can be on your stomach. I know I should wear one but in my case I really don't think they are made for short people no matter how they try. It's very uncomfortable, if they had made them better then I probably wouldn't have a problem with wearing it.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:21 am |
  22. Neil

    I think that they are Ignoring the seat beat because they think it's no use, they believe That because that if they drive carefully , they won't need a seat belt, but some others just don't want to do it, because they think that it's uncomfortable, especially with children, I'm not really worried about the adults, because they already know that seat belt is important, well.at least the adults I've ever seen is, so I think that Obama can make a speech about that to the a school and put it on the student new so that kids will know that, but of course Obama dosen't have to do it, but that's what I think.

    some people might think they are too cool to wear their seatbelts, and therefore not wear them with their friends, and then get hurt.

    February 23, 2010 at 8:15 am |
  24. subeom

    I think the reason that seatbelts are ignored is because nobody thinks it is important.But I think seatbelts would prevent fatal accidents or death.I hope many people would understand the importance of seatbelts!

    February 23, 2010 at 8:45 am |
  25. joseph

    i know my brother and sister don't use seatbelt cause they think it is cool, but i always they them it is not cause i am a stickler about seatbelts and i hate it when people don't use them.

    February 23, 2010 at 8:51 am |

    I guess people don`t know alot about seatbelts and just ignores it.

    February 23, 2010 at 8:56 am |

    some people dont wear seat belts because they dont feel comfortable and probably because they dont realise it

    February 23, 2010 at 9:04 am |
  28. Stephanie

    Some people ignore seat belts because they probably think: oh watever i won't get into an accedent today. But they don't know there chances.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:04 am |
  29. Richard

    Some people ignore seat belt is probably because they dont think that they wont have an accident, and because their just to lazy.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:05 am |
  30. Madisonn

    Well personally i think that people dont not wear seat belts because they try to be cool. For example, my sister, my mom, an I might be riding in the car and then she spots so-called cute boys. She would duck down taking her seat belt off, saying that she dropped something on the floor. I do nt not why she does that.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:05 am |
  31. Cberry

    People dont wear seat belts because they think that it is cool when they dont where them, but it is not cool when you are dead. Also people are LAZY! I even think that seat belts are uncomfortable and that is another reasn why they are ignored.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:06 am |
  32. Ronak

    Some people might think that seatbelts are dumb because they dont help them. Or they are uncomfortable.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:06 am |
  33. Samantha

    i think the people think that seatbelts are over rated and that they are to cool to wear them.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:07 am |

    because ppl think there ugly oer rated

    February 23, 2010 at 9:07 am |
  35. Richard

    to me seatbelts make me uncomfortable and hurt my neck, but i still wear them for pre-caution. If car dealers are concerned with this issue they should think of the customers.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:08 am |
  36. Shanasia

    i think the reason why people are not wearing seat belts is because they are not that stylish. they should add cool details and restraints for the whole upper torso of a person.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:09 am |
  37. Ryan

    People ignore seat belts because they think it's in the way. My uncle never wears one because he thinks he'll be fine. I think you need to wear a seat belt because there is always a chance to be in an accident.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:17 am |
  38. Jenny

    I think people are just uncaring of what could really happen if they don't wear a seat belt. I forget sometimes too, but I shouldn't. Then again, maybe people are just lazy!

    February 23, 2010 at 9:28 am |
  39. Alyssa

    People need to really wear seat belts or there just putting themselves in danger. People think that they won't get in a accident but you don't know that. You could be driving and all of a sudden an animal could come on the road and you swerve into a tree or go into a ditch. That's why you always put your seat belt on so your always ready when something will happen.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:29 am |
  40. Christine

    Still now, majority of people don't tend to wear the seat belt habitually.Because car accident news don't make them feel panic( that kind of news is 'breath taking news,I think ).So they don't know the importance of seat belt.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:31 am |
  41. Meghan

    I think the only reason people don't wear seat belts is because they are "uncool or uncomfortable". However, I don' think that not wearing seat belts is a good idea.I always wear mine.

    People should all were seat belts or else when they crash they will fly out the car and get heart!

    I think that people should wear there seat belts. It is common sense to wear them it keeps you safe from harm . People should wear them more often then they do.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:34 am |
  44. Maddy

    First of all i think that the new video for seat belt safety is awesome! I think that you should wear your seat belt at all times I mean there is always that chance even on a short ride you could get in a car accident which would be fatal without seat belts. Like how there is a chance you will get sick everyone was freaked out about the swine flu but yet they are not freaked out about the potential of sever injury without a seat belt.

  45. MEGAN

    I REALLY DON'T LIKE TO WEAR SEAT BELTS BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY UNCOMTORBLE . BUT I THINK THAT U SHOULD WEAR IT CAUSE THAT LOTS OF PEOPLE HAVE DIED IN CAR ACCIDENTS . SOOO IF U ARE TAKING A RIDE IN A SNOW STORM U SHOULD DEFFDENTLY WEAR IT BUT IF U WEAR IT FOR A SHORT RIDE U SHOULD WEAR IT TOOO THEIR ARE LOTS OFFF PEOPLE OUT THERE

    People who don't ware seat belts are stupid,DON'T THEY KNOW THEY GET KILLED AND DIE!

  47. Mrs. A. Perez Class

    Some people think that seat belts are uncomfortable, or in case of an emergency , such as an accident, seat belts can get jammed (stuck) which may cause fatality. But in reality, seat bealts are important to our soceity in keeping people alive. So it's best to wear seat belts no matter what.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:37 am |
  48. Blake

    Some people ignore seat belts because they don't think they are not cool. If they get into a car crash they would probably die. That is why everyone should were a seat belt.

    People don't wear seat belts because they think it's cool because they are breaking the law.

    When you wear a seat belt in a crash, you are more likely to get whip-lash.
    A seven year old drove a car and hit a telephone pole. He wasn't wearing a seat belt and didn't get hurt. I think it was because he was able to take the impact instead of trying to fight it.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:40 am |
  51. Maria

    I think that people don't wear seat belts because they might just be driving a mile or two away. I think no matter how far away they are driving they should wear a seat belt. They should at least do it for their Safety.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:40 am |
  52. Mariah

    I honestly don't think that people are very smart if they don't wear their seat belts. I think that people don't wear their seat belts because either they are drunk and can't control themselves, or they think that it is cool and that they are better than anyone who does wear a seat belt.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:42 am |
  53. Olivia

    My opinion about it is that It s stupid it shouldent be a law we should have a safer law with something else besides a seat belt

    February 23, 2010 at 9:45 am |
  54. Nathan

    I think if you are not wearing a seat belt you should at least have the airbag on. If you have the airbag on it will stop you from lunging forward. But I still think people should wear seat belts anyways because they are made for a reason and the reason is to protect them from fatal accidents and really bad injuries.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:47 am |
  55. karina

    I think people are just to lazy to put them on and they don't care if they get hurt ornot

    February 23, 2010 at 9:48 am |
  56. Anthony

    I think that seatbelts are ignored because 1: They are uncomfortable, and 2: People think the look cool when they don't wear seatbelts, and in these days, everyone is looking for a way to get noticed.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:49 am |
  57. Sheryl

    I think that some people dont wear seat belts despite the danger probably because they dont have the time to do it, they dont like the feeling, or they are just way too lazy!!!! People just dont care that they might get into an accident or even die!!!

    February 23, 2010 at 9:51 am |
  58. Gayathri

    I think that peopel are not wearing seat belts because they may not the fact that it is notp letting them move around a lot. They probably don't like being restricted. Anthoer reason is that they want to move freely around.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:52 am |
  59. Rachel

    I think that the drivers don't wear seat belts because they think that it is annoying to have a strap up against you in the car and that it is a hassle to buckle it and make sure that it is sucure. I think that more people should try to make sure that they put a seat belt on so that they don't put themselvs in danger on the road.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:53 am |
  60. Raveena

    I think people do not were seat belts because they think there is no reason to where them.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:53 am |
  61. Joyce

    some people still dont wear seat belts because they might think it is annoying. others think that there is no need for them because they THINK that they wont get hurt from them. even thugh people know about the danger they still dont care about seat belts cause you never know when your going to run into something.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:55 am |
  62. Melby

    I think people still dont wear seat belts is because people dont think its necessary. When some people go on a short trip, people today dont think its a big deal. No, thats wrong. In a short period of time big damages will occur. Its not safe, first and most importantly.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:56 am |
  63. Taylor

    People don`t wear seat belts for a couple of reasons. One is, they may think they`re good drivers and won`t get into an accident. Also, they think its not a big deal. It is because you would be putting yourself and family in pain or a crisis. That is why they ignore seat blets.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:57 am |
  64. Melodie

    I think that some people don't wear seatbelts because either they don't feel like putting it on, or that they just don't care about getting hurt and people often say that most people don't die when they don't put on their seatbelts and they get a car crash, but in fact, a ton of people do die from not wearing seatbelts. So you should always wear seatbelts.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:58 am |
  65. Abby

    Some people ignore seatbelts because it probally annoys them or hurts them. Many people ignore seatbelts because it bothers them gets in their way. It gets people mad if the seatbelt gets in their way.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:58 am |
  66. Jenna

    I think so e people don't wear seatbelyts mainly because they don't think they'll get into a situation where they'll need a seatbelt to keep them from getting hurt. Also, I think that they don't wear seatbelts because they forget. I also forget to buckle up sometimes, so I think it is fair to say that it can be easy to forget.

    February 23, 2010 at 10:00 am |
  67. michelle

    I think that people dont wear their seatbelts because they probobly assume that they wont get in a crash. They also might not wear seatbelts because maybe they are in a hurry and they forgot. My parents taught me that the first thing you need to do when you get in a car is buckle up. Even if someone gets in a really small crash they could still break a nose or lose a tooth and it is very dangerousnot to wear your seatbelt.

    February 23, 2010 at 10:01 am |

    I think people dont wear seatbelts because they think there so full of themselves and dont think its cool to wear them.

    February 23, 2010 at 10:01 am |
  69. Bincy

    I think that people don't wear seat belts because some people dont like the feeling of it when they put it on or maybe they forget to wear it. They might not even care! Probably people don't think it's much of a big help, even though it is.

    February 23, 2010 at 10:03 am |
  70. Allyson

    I think that some people don't wear seat belts because they might be injured and can't wear one. I doubt that though. Also, a lot of people don't know how much trouble they can get in for not wearing one. Seat belts are for saftey and some people, I guess they just don't care about their saftey. Someone in my family doesn't wear them, but when I asked them to and shared what I learned about car saftey with them they agreed to put it on. Now every time I see them they have their seat belt on and I think to myself, I could save a lives by telling people to wear their seat belt.

    February 23, 2010 at 10:03 am |
  71. Rachel

    I think that drivers don't wear seat belts because they don't like having the strap around them. It can make them feel uncomfortable because it goes around your neck. Another reason people might not like seat belts is becausethe can sometimes get too tight. When its too tight you can't bend down to reach things. You would have to unbuckle and then buckle back up to get it.

    February 23, 2010 at 10:04 am |
  72. Isabelle

    i think that people don't think that they need seatbelts because they are such GOOD drivers....and they might be but sometimes you can't control it. you could slide on ice or someone could accidentally ram you. it could also be your car tons of cars are being recalled by their company because of problems with their breaks. some people also think that they are "too cool" for seatbelts and they aren't such good drivers...

    February 23, 2010 at 10:05 am |
  73. Melvin

    For many it is laziness but for students, they think it's cool to not wear the seat belt. They are afraid that they will be made fun of.

    February 23, 2010 at 10:09 am |
  74. Kate

    This could be because seat belts are sometimes uncomfortable. I remember when I was about 8 years old. The seat belt was too big and cut into my neck and made it a little hard to breathe. I refused to wear a seat belt until my dad bought a special thing that made it easier to control the length of the belt. Im sure many people have or had the same problem as me.

    We think there are a few reasons why people don't wear seat belts. First, we think some people are just lazy. They just don't want to put it on.

    Second, some teens think that wearing a seat belt isn't cool.

    Third, some people don't wear belt because it's a short trip.

    Last, we think some people just drive too much, and don't want to take the time to wear it.

    they should be required because if you're in an accident they can save your life.

    February 23, 2010 at 10:16 am |
  77. Mr. C

    I feel that seat belts are ignored simply because they take time to put on, even though it takes about 2 seconds. It is a risky and ultimately could be the most costly mistake of a person's life. Take the time to put your seat belt on!

    February 23, 2010 at 10:31 am |

    Carl, I think some pople dont wear seat belts just because there too lazy!

    I think some teenagers people dont' wear because they think it will make them more popular or cool. Also they are not the most comfortable things but I would take them being uncomfortable for a few minutes rather than risking my life.

  80. shane

    i belive that people just ignore their seat belts because the just want to get in the car and leave.which is not a good idea because when you get in a car and not wearing a seat belt it means that you will most likely go through a window when your in a wreck.

    February 23, 2010 at 11:10 am |
  81. Jason

    I don't think it's very smart to not wear your seat belt because there are so many potential injuries that can occur during a car accident. I had a sister whose life was saved by her seat belt during a severe car accident. This was when I was younger and ever since then, I always make sure I put mine on. This would make my driver's ed. teacher proud!

    February 23, 2010 at 11:12 am |
  82. Caleb

    I think that some people are simply in too much of a hurry to put them on sometimes. Slow down, and use the five seconds it takes to put it on. Something so small really can make an enormous difference. If you don't do it for you, than do it for those you will impact, because that can be someone's world.

  83. cody

    I think that the many people that don't wear seat belts are either to stubborn to or they think that if they do then they might not fit in with their friends, peer pressure in my opinion is the biggest reason most people refuse to click. You may be an adult but i am quickly learning that no matter how old you are you will always have someone that is going to tell you that you aren't cool or hip, and that what you are doing makes you a nerd. But in the end who lives and who dies may depend greatly on weather or not you were wearing you seat belt.

    Well people ingore seat bealts, they also just forget about them. And it is also more comfterable without them.

  85. STACE

    I think that people dont wear seat belts simply because they forget. I feel bad for people that have to learn the hard way that seat belts are a necessity when your driving because you never know what could happen! You could be the best driver in the world and not think you need a seat belt and someone in a split second could hit into your car and your life could be over because you didnt have a seat belt on.

    February 23, 2010 at 11:14 am |
  86. Claire

    I think that people don't wear seat belts because they just don't think about it. It's really easy, if your not used to wearing a seat belt to jump in the car and not put it on. Some people just buckle up when they feel pressured to such as passing a police car. Also some people are just too lazy or they think it is uncomfortable.

    I think that everyone ignores seatbelts because some people claim they are uncomfortable. Also some people think it is cool to not wear seatbelts.

    i think people should wear a seat belt because if they dont thenif they got in a accident they would probally die. If they died then someone in there family would really miss them.

    I wouldnt really know I DO wear my seatbelt. But, if I had to take a guess, I would think that they dont really know how risky not wearing a seatbelt is. Im sure the people who got into crashes because of not wearing them, now wear them when driving. Maybe we have to show the people something that will show them the dangers.

    I beilive people ignore seatbelts because they think of it as an irritation instead of a life saver because until you experince how much you need it the easy or the hard way

    I personally think people think that they are too cool for seatbelts....I don't know why, it's basically a life or death situation. The ignorance of some people makes things this way.

  93. Amari

    I think they ignore it because they dont think that something would happenen to them where they would need a seatbelt. Or no one close to them has ever been hurt in an accident where it could have been prevented by seatbelts. When i was in 5th grade i was in a 5 car crash and it involved a 18 Wheeler. After the accident i wore my seat bel all the time because I knew that an accident could happen any time. But now sometimes i dont wear it if i dont feel like it and i know its not safe. But people just dont think about how much their seat belts are saving their lives.

    People don't put their seat belts on either because they forget or they don't feel like putting it on. They're just too lazy.

  95. Amulya

    I think some people don't wear seat belts because they don't think the statistics are real. Plus they might think that if it's a short ride they don't have to wear a seat belt.

    February 23, 2010 at 11:18 am |
  96. Danos

    I think people don't were seat belts because they did not were it as kids. And because of that thier not used to it. Also it can get annoying and some people are always in a hurry.

    I think some people ignore the seat belt rules because they think it is cool to go on with out one. Maybe if school busses even had seat belts it might also help with the problem..

    I think they ignore it because they might be in a rush going somewhere and they just forget to put it on.

    I think that not wearing a seat belt is another bad trend that has caught on and has had a subconscience place in all of us.

    We need seatbelts in order to protect our lives . Think about it, how often do we drive everyday. Think of all the chances you take by getting in a car. Seatbelts protect us just in case we got in an accident .

  101. Justin

    I think that people ignore wearing their seatbelts becuase they think the are being cool when they don't wear a seat belt or they think that the seat belt will hurt them more than the crash, or they are in a hurry and just forget about the seat belt

    February 23, 2010 at 11:28 am |

    i think that some people dont wear seatbelts because they think "oh i wont be in a crash im perfectly fine" but a few minutes late bang! there they are in the hostpital with life threatning injuries

    ......some people dont think that they should wear there seat belts because its there choice which i think that it should be your choice to wear your seat belt or not. thats your life that you put in danger when you dont wear it.......

    I believe that seatbelts are uncomfortable and they often cause injuries. I have witnessed many accidents where the seatbelt has actually killed the person.

    Most of the time people either forget or they think that their destination is short so they dont need to wear it. Somtimes people think it chokes them or somtimes it feels constricting.

  106. Ellen

    I'm not a psychologist so I don't know why people don't wear their seat belts, but I could take a guess. Some statistics state that ______% of crashes happen near your home. Here's a scenario: you hop in your car to go get the mail, but the mail box is just down the road so you figure you'd be wasting time by putting on your seat belt, unfortunately your putting yourself at risk, just in that short amount of time.

  107. mr. sebela plus program

    Some people try to look cool by hanging out the window with out a seat belt. Another student said that the seat belt can cause neck irritation which is uncomfortable. Some people think if you wear a seat belt it is just annoying. But most students feel that you should wear your seat belt because of the fines and the safety issues, CLICK IT OR TICKET!!!! 🙂

    We believe that people who do not wear seat belts do not think about their life.

    Some of us think that they had surgery, and they cannot wear the seat belt.

    I think some people are just lazy and don't feel like putting on their seatbelts. Still, some people might think that the seatbelt just isn't needed and put themselves at risk. Also, some people might be in such a rush that they forget to put on their seatbelt.

    February 23, 2010 at 12:16 pm |

    I think seat belts are ignored because people think they are uncomfortable. The seat belts might press against they're throat causing them to choak. Even though it hurts you should always wear a seat belt!! 🙂

    I think people don't use seat belts is because they think that since everybody else does it, why not them. They are sometimes lazy and not smart to do this stuff because if they get into an accident, they can be severely injured. They might be able to die, too. They should wear seat belts because then they would be safe. It would also help them make the right choices. Seat belts are ignored because they think that they are cool, too.

    I think people don't wear seat belts because with children it is usually becuase they "forgot" to put it on or they think seatbelts are pointless and they don't beleive they will get in a car crash. Adults probably think that they can survive the impact of a car crash if it happens by themselves. Also they might think that they are too "busy" to take the time to fasten the seatbelts.

    Cameron – Some people aren't afraid of getting into a car accident because it has never happened to them or someone that they love.

    Billy – Some people feel uncomfortable wearing them.

    Shaq – Some people don't like them. Some people might be allergic to the materials.

    Travon – Some people are lazy.

    Arturo – Some people might have a phobia of seatbelts.

    Jocelyn – Maybe their seatbelts don't work in their cars. Some people just don't want to wear them. Some people feel restricted by them.

    Madalyn – Some people might get rashes/cuts by the seatbelt.

    Mathew – Some people might have doubts about how strong or effective the seatbelts are.

    I think people ignore seat belts because they are uncomfortable with them on. Some people think they get in the way and they can be a distraction while driving. Seat belts don't always fit people according to their height. They are normally made one size fits all. Some people may be too short or too tall for the seat belt to fit comfortably. Another reason may be that they just forget it. Some people may be in a hurry and just forget to put it on.

    i think that some people don't wear seatbelts becayse it is usually children they either forget to bickle themselves or believe it is not needed or point less.Aduts arwe more sure of deth or getting injured if you don't wear a seatbelt if somehow theor would be an aksedent.some adults may justy hop into the car and not buckle themselves this is because they are rushing and think if they bukcle themselves it will waist time.

    Some people are confident in themselves knowing that car accidents happen rarely. They don't know how fast one car accident can occur. I figure that it's all based on confidency..

    Seatbelts are ignored by some people because they never formed the habit of putting it on. Older generations were never required to wear seatbelts. It is a good habit that you need to adopt.

  134. christie

    Personally, I wear a seatbelt everytime i get into a car. As the stats said it reduces a fatal injury by almost half. I think people are just too distracted and it slips their mind, or dont think they "have time" to put a seatbelt on. And it really hits them that they should have worn one when they are in the ICU because they didn't wear a strap across their chest and lap. It really doesn't take time to put one on. I think it should become a nationwide LAW to wear a seatbelt. It would save many many lives.

    I think seat belts are ignored because I think people don't want to waste time to buckle and all that stuff.
    I think u should wear a safety belt so if you are in a car crash, you won't die. You could but you might just some minor injuries. I don't think ignoring seat belts should be ignored anymore.

    I'd say because a ton of kids my age, younger and older think that it is cool to not wear seat belts. I myself somtimes don't wear them. Somtimes i just feel they are somthing i have to do and everyone has their moods were they don't do stuff they should or have to. Also for younger kids or people that or short, the seat bealt is not comfortible at all. It digs into your neck or they just put it around the waist and that don't work to well.

    I think that some people( mostly young adults who just got there driving licenses) don't put them on because they think that they are just to cool for them. Or they "Don't have enough time to put them on"or there trying to be like the cool kid or something like that. I think that is all.

    I think that people don't use seat belt's is because they sometime might kill you in some situations, like if you drive in the water people will freak out and they will die. Another reason is that they might have had a bad experience like they get snagged our they do not work at all. The other reason is that they co not like to wear it.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:36 pm |
  140. Hailee

    I think that some people dont wear seat belts because they think it takes too much wasted time to put it on, adjust it, and then take it off. They probably don't even think about the risk of getting hurt. I know some little kids think seat belts itch or hurt when they wear them. Its still safer though to have it on even if it isn't the most comfortable thing ever.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:36 pm |
  141. Levi

    I think that people ignore seatbelts because they are not that comfrtable and to some people it is an inconvienance. I dont think that the goverment should be able to control whether you have to where one or not its a personal preferance it think they should where one at there own risk

    February 23, 2010 at 1:37 pm |

    I Think that drivers don't wear seat belts because of a couple reasons, one, that they think it is uncomfortable and that they think it gets in the way two, because they are to lazy or they forget to put it on, and three because they just don't wanna wear it because they think they are too cool
    -thank you-

    February 23, 2010 at 1:37 pm |
  143. Alexander

    Well first of all teenagers are one of the most common people not to buckle up. The reason why they don't buckle up is because that they want to look good and not weird with a seat belt on. Well sorry to say would you rather be safe or look good? You should know what one. Another reason is because people don't think they are comfortable well they may not be comfortable but they are safe so wear one. Another reason is that sometimes people do it because they may be drunk. I hate to say it but that is one of the highest part of death drunk driving and not wearing your seatbelt. Thank you for listening.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:38 pm |
  144. Tim

    I think the reason that some people don't wear their seat belts while driving is because they don't like the feeling of the seat belt around your body. Another reason is because they just sometimes forget to put it on.

    There are a lot of reasons why people don't wear seat belts. Some people don't like to wear them because they think that they aren't comfortable and some people just don't think they need to wear them.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:39 pm |
  146. Debbie

    I found the PSA to be very moving. I think that drivers and their passengers still do not buckle up because of old stories that people have died because they were wearing their seatbelt. What people don't realize is that those people probably would have died anyway, from their injuries. Seatbelts have saved lives when in use, and have reduced injuries when they are used! That is a proven statistic! Please think about yourself and your family – buckle your seatbelt, and make sure that everyone in your car uses their seatbelt!

    February 23, 2010 at 1:39 pm |
  147. Nick

    I think that people are starting to ignore seat belts because more and more people are using cellphones while they are driving. I don't know why they enforce the law because you are taking your own risk not wearing a seat belt.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:39 pm |
  148. Andrew

    I think that people don't wear seat belts because they think it is cool and if they wear them, their friends won't like them anymore. And sometimes criminals might ignore them because their trying to run from the police and they think that they don't have enough time to put them on. And they just don't feel like wearing them because they hate them and they don't care for them.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:39 pm |
  149. CJ

    I think that people don't wear seat belts for two reasons. One is that I think that people are too lazy to bother with them and the other reason is that I have heard of people being decapitated the seat belt when it locks up. It is truly really sad when things like that happen.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:40 pm |
  150. Jack

    People don't wear seat belts because they might forget, that or some people think that it is cool, or most people in our school say wearing seat belts is overrated, personally I don't think wearing them is overrated, honestly people that don't wear seat belts are not the brightest because well if they get into a bad accident they really have no chance of making it out 100% alive or not injured. anyways thanks for reading my comment

    February 23, 2010 at 1:40 pm |

    Most teens do not wear seat belts because the seat belt strap is kinda annoying when you're in the car for a long time, and sometimes they don't really think about putting their seat belt on when they enter the car.

    I think that some people don't wear their seat belts because when some people are with their friends they won't because they think that they are being bad or rebellious. Another reason could be that people just simply forget or are too lazy. Some kids might think that wearing a seat belt is uncool or that they would never get in a crash. But if they do crash, they would've wished they wore it.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:41 pm |

    Hello carl, I think that people don't wear seat-belts for, they think they are quit uncomfortable. I think that for some people its just a habit, a bad habit. Also, maybe some people think they are to cool for seat-belts and don't wear them. Or maybe they aren't noticeable. I think they should make them a noticeable but stylish color.

    I think they are not using seat-belts because they think the car are safe enough with all the new technologies in cars. They also think the air bags will save them. They also think they might not put it on so they can be COOL!!!!!!

    I think that people don't wear their seat belts because they are simply lazy. However I often think that it is because they just forget. If you have a lot on your mind you might not think of it. The more you do it the more it will become a habbit.

    Seat belts are sometimes ignored because some people find them uncomfortable, or uncool. But my moms friend wasn't wearing one and she went through the windshield and died. So WEAR ONE.

  157. Britt

    Out of all the ppl in America I think that teenagers are the ones who don't wear their seatbelts,because when they are with their friend they want to seem cool because they don't wear seatbelts. Also I don't think that people also don't wear seatbelts because they are not comfortable.Thats why I think people don't wear seatbelts.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:42 pm |
  158. Dani

    I'm not quite sure why people don't wear seat belts... I mean if they save your life why not use it? If you don't wear one because you think it looks weird then think about what you could look like after a horrible accident, if you survive. Wear your seat belts! They were invented for a reason! To SAVE lives, possibly yours....

    February 23, 2010 at 1:42 pm |
  159. Nina(:

    Because some people think that there cool enough to not were seat belts. And they think that they are not comfortable. And personally I think that you should wear seat belts!!!

    I think that they don't put there Seat belts on because they think other people think there cool when there being unsafe. They also have to be somewhere fast and they for get to put it on.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:44 pm |
  162. Taylor

    I think that people don't wear for a few reasons. The first reason is people simply may have been to lazy to put it on. Secondly, people are not used to putting it on when they get in a car. And my final reason is people may be afraid of being decapitated.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:44 pm |
  163. Jordan

    I believe that some people don't wear seat belts because they forget or they just don't think that they're going to ever get into a car crash. Seat belts can also get uncomfortable when you are trying to drive for a long period of time and that is why they dont wear seat belts.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:44 pm |
  164. Spenser

    I think that they don't put the seatbelt on because they didn't put it in the first time and they are use to not putting it on. And that they are so lazy. I always put one on because you could die without knowing it.

    I think that some people just ignore them or just forget about them or they just think that they are uncomfortable. Also they just think that they dont need it and they say that they think that they are too cool to wear it a seat belt but the most one is that people think that they drive real carefully and think that they will never get into a accident.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:45 pm |
  166. Derek

    I think wearing seat belts is a good thing and people shouldn't ignore them. I think that they shouldn't because if it saves your life you should respect that. It kinda shows in how many lives it has saved in the recent years. But some people just don't wear them because they think it is uncomfortable and they think they are not cool.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:46 pm |

    People probably think they drive to safe, then if there are icy roads or someone else is texting or people are messing around and they get in a car crash.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:48 pm |
  168. Gabriel

    I think some people don't wear seatbelts because they think that accidents only happen to other people. They think it won't happen to them. In addition, some young people think that wearing seatbelts will make them "not cool" in the eyes of their peers.

    February 23, 2010 at 1:52 pm |
  169. Cody

    I think people ignore seatbelts because some people think its cool not to use one. They see their friends without one and the think its not cool to wear one. When they see people driven down the road without one then they might take it off just because the want to be cool. They need to wear one if they want to live through a crash.

    February 23, 2010 at 2:01 pm |
  170. Mrs. Savannah's Girls Class

    We believe that people don't wear seatbelts for multiple reasons:
    1. People like to "look cool"
    2. People don't pay attention to the seat belt when they get in the car
    3. Seatbelts are broken
    4. Some people have a fear of being choked by seatbelts
    5. Some people feel safer with seatbelt off.
    6. Seatbelts are uncomfortable
    7. People are LAZY
    8. People can't breathe when they wear seatbelts
    9. People are ignorant or apathetic about what can happen
    10. People like being defiant
    11. "It won't happen to me!" Feeling of invincibility.

    Well, if you're a teenager, it might be because you want to be cool, and maybe even impress your friends. The fact is your friends won't be too impressed to see you go flying through the front winsheild.

    We think people ignore seatbelts because they're in a rush or out of laziness.

    People don't think they are going to get into a crash. Some people have never been in a crash so they think they are safe. Or, they may just forget to put them on.

    My opinion on this topic is that people do need to wear their seat belts because if they are in a car accident and they are not wearing a seat belt, they can get seriously injured or may be ejected from the vehicle. If someone is injured or killed in an accident due to a seat belt not being buckled, it can have an impact on that person's family. The family may have to give up time working or at school to make sure that the person that was injured is okay and helping them.

    I believe some people ignore their seat belts because they find it uncomfortable and a chore. Unless it's absolutely necessary to them, they won't click it.

    I used to never wear my seatbelt. It earned me a nice collision with the window and a duck egg sized bump.

    I think some people just dont care about there lives. they think its to not cool to were a seatbelt.people just dont now that not wearing a sealt is just ike throwing your life away.

  177. Elin

    Whenever I get in a car with friends I don't think about putting a seatbelt on. I don't think about the saftey issue of wearing a seatbelt. Often there are not enough seatbelts in the car when I am riding with several people.

    February 23, 2010 at 2:30 pm |
  178. Mrs. Savannah's Boys Class

    We agree that some people don't wear their seatbelts because:
    1. It is uncomfortable
    2. The people are too short for seatbelts
    3. Some people don't think they need it
    4. It's not cool
    5. It itches
    6. Seatbelts lock up
    7. Sometimes seatbelts kill people
    8. Seatbelts can hurt you if you are in a wreck

    First off i have no idea why people would imagine or even dare not to wear a seat belt.They protect people.I dont know maybe think they are cool not wearing a seat belt.

    Some people forget to wear them but some think they just dont help.
    I wear seatbelts but sometimes my parents have to remind me because im thinking about something else this is maybe why.

    Some teenagers think its not cool to wear a seat belt in front of their friends. However, if they have an accident and die, their friends will wish they had been wearing a seat belt.

    because some kids AND adults think that wearing a seatbelt is just a suggestion,but it isn't...it's for your own safety.

    People do not wear seat belts because they do not feel like it. They also might be in a hurry. they also do not care.

    February 23, 2010 at 2:49 pm |
  191. Mr. Kelly's Class

    Steven, I do not wear my seat belt because wearing the seat belt is uncomfortable and hurts my neck

    TiAna, I do not wear a seat belt on short trips because I am in the back seat and only going to be there for a short time.

    Evelyn – I do not wear seat belts because if there is something interesting to see I can't see it because of the seat belt.

    Hassanti I wear my seat belt only because my mother makes me.

    Joey, I wear my seat belt so if I get into a car accident I don't get ejected from the car.

    i think people dont wear seatbelts because they might be going to places that are close and they think they wont get ni a car accident but even tho its close they still might get in a accident

    February 23, 2010 at 2:50 pm |
  193. AbBy

    I think they are not wearing seatbelts because people think they are so cool without wearing one and it dosn't lead to too much success if they get hurt!

    February 23, 2010 at 2:51 pm |
  194. Michelle

    I THINK THAT SOME PEOPLE MIGHT NOT WHEAR OR PUT ON A SEAT BELT EVEN THOUGH IT IS NOT SAFE TO DRIVE WITHOUT ONE, BECAUSE THEY MIGHT NOT WANT TO WHEAR ONE. ALSO, BECAUSE THEY MIGHT BE IN A HURRY OR IN A RUSH TO GET SOMEWHEAR. ALO IT MIGHT BOTHER THEM. OR IF THE PLACE IS NEAR THE ON THAT THEY ARE AT. ASO, BECAUSE THEY MIGHT BE LATE. ALSO THEY MIGHT BE VERY EXITED TO GET TO A CEARTIN PLACE. THEY MIGHT ALSO THINK THAT THEY WILL NOT GET INTO A CAR ACKSEDENT, BECAUSE THEY HAD NEVER GOT INTO ONE BEFOR OR FOR A LOG TIME. THEY MIGHT ALSO THINK THAT IT IS COOL NOT TO BUCKLE.

    I think that a seat belt should be warn by everybody, but some people for get to put them on. Thre should be a reminder in the car about the seatbelts.

    I know i probably should, but a lot of times i really don't think about it when i jump in my vehicle. After seeing that i will probably think about it more often.

    Because they think that they are better than the perject drivers killed by other people. It doesn't matter how good a driver you are if the people around you can't stay in their lane! Also, they may be drunk and not thinking clearly.

    People are getting lazy and forgetful these days and are in a rush to get to their destination. They are either forgetting to put on their saftey belts or they just dont care.

    February 23, 2010 at 3:00 pm |
  201. Samantha

    I think that people choose not to wear seatbelts due to their own ego. These people have the attitude that they will never fall victim to a wreck. Therefore, they choose no to wear the the seatbelt...

    February 23, 2010 at 3:01 pm |
  202. Dalton

    I think some poeple ignore seatbelts because they are either too lazy, or think its not cool. People need to learn being "cool" isn't worth getting hurt in a car crash.

    February 23, 2010 at 3:01 pm |
  203. Kayla

    I believe some people don't wear seat belts because they take life for granted and because a seatbelt is maybe a little less comfortable, so they risk their lives for just a single moment of comfort.

    February 23, 2010 at 3:02 pm |
  204. Alexx

    People don do it for a certain reason. I know for sure my parents don't wear them most of the time because they don't really have enough time to put on one. Because they leave right after they need to, they just ignore them t get to where they need to be in time.

    February 23, 2010 at 3:03 pm |

    I say people ignore seat because they are idiots. They should know the reason for seat belts and the people should respect that.

    February 23, 2010 at 3:04 pm |
  206. Ivy

    I think people just don't bother putting on seat belts because it is uncomfortable. Also, it makes reaching for things a lot harder. Teenagers make up most of the population of people who do not buckle their seat belt, and we enjoy texting so seat belts make it harder to do that. But a few hours or minutes of being uncomfortable is a lot better than losing your life or a loved one.

    February 23, 2010 at 3:05 pm |
  207. Tim

    My dad has always forgets to put his seat belt on. I try not to remind him as much as I used to because he is trying to get better at remembering to buckle his seat belt. I think that this is because when he gets into the car, he has a lot of things on his mind.

    February 23, 2010 at 3:06 pm |

    I think some people dont want to wear seatbelts because they are uncomfortable,not cool to wear,or they might just forget about them. Most people just dont want to take the time to put them on.

    February 23, 2010 at 3:40 pm |
  211. Kevin

    I guess some people think they don't need seat belts since they drive safely, or it could just be that they are a little hard-headed.

    February 23, 2010 at 3:42 pm |
  212. Lindsey

    People have the mentality that an accident could never happen to them. I believe that these people have never been personally affected nor had an incidence where someone they love gets hurt in a wreck. I always wear my seat belt, and every time I'm in a car with someone I make sure they are wearing one as well.

    February 23, 2010 at 4:00 pm |
  213. Abby

    Multiple reasons. One, when people are drunk. Two, to impress friends, though it only makes them look like an idiot. Three, if they forget, or four. People are idiots

    February 23, 2010 at 4:06 pm |
  214. Morgan

    I think most people think they wont get hurt because they are careful drivers or because they are going anywhere far enough to get in a accident.

  215. MaryEllen

    Most people think that they don't need to wear a seat belt because they are safe drivers. But they don't realize that the other half of the population aren't safe drivers and cause a lot of the accidents we see today.

    Some people probably don't wear seat belts because their parents or the people that they interact with all of the time don't wear them. It's a bad habit that can be picked up from the people around you and it can be the difference between life and death for someone.

    February 23, 2010 at 4:35 pm |

    Because people never think they'll get into an accident when driving

    I think some people ignore seat belts becayse they don't think about the bad things that can happen. And they don't think it will happen to them, but anything can happen.

    I think that some people don't wear seat belts because they are to busy talking on there cell phone, multi tasking,or rushing off some where, to click on there seat belts.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:15 pm |
  231. Alysa

    I think that some people don't want to take the time to buckle up. Especially if their destination is right down the street. Also if they haven't ever put a seat belt on, they might just forget to.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:16 pm |
  232. Lara

    I think that some people just don't take the time to buckle up. They might think its not worth it if they are only driving for a short time. Also, if they have never buckled in their life, they might just completely forget, especially if they are driving alone.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:16 pm |
  233. Jeffy and Alex

    Jeffy: Well it saves a lot of people, but I think it chokes people. People hate it and take it off and then get in accidents and die. If they made it comfy then it would be better.

    Alex: Like i don't where seat belts because it chokes me. The stories i hear like about my family the accidents would have been worse if they were wearing a belt belt so, yeah.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:17 pm |
  234. Olivia

    If people are driving only for a short time, they might think that they're safe, and that they don't need to wear one. They don't think it's worth it, though it only takes about two seconds to put on a seatbelt. They think since the drive is short, nothing can happen to them or they're family. But even in this short time, people can get injured or killed. Or maybe they don't like the feel of the seatbelt. They may feel like its too tight, or something. But still, being uncomfortable is better than being dead!

    February 23, 2010 at 5:17 pm |
  235. Paige

    If people are in a rush, they might try to save time by not buckling their seat belts. If they are driving for a short time, they might not think it's important either. Both reasons are not intelligent choices. Would you rather be alive or get somewhere right on time? I heard once that seat belts are uncomfortable for some people. I think that they aren't that bad. They keep you safe. When I'm not wearing my seat belt sometimes, I feel empty. It's really irregular for me.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:17 pm |
  236. Ana

    Some people don't really care about their safety. Otherwise, people don't take the time to realize that they are in great danger. My friends don't do it because they think that it's impossible for them to get into an accident and fly through the windshield.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:18 pm |
  237. Gabby

    I think that people ignore there seat belts because they might think that not wearing there is seat belt is cool. Also maybe they are not aware of the danger. If it s a sort drive some people don' t see the point in wearing it. Another possibility is that there in a hurry and they don't have time or maybe if they get in the habit of not wearing there seat belt it might feel unnatural.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:18 pm |
  238. Vanessa

    People don't wear seat belts because they're so lazy but I wear mine so I don't get hurt.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:19 pm |
  239. Sam and Allison

    We think seat belts are ignored because they may think that it is uncool to wear them, or they don't know what could happen until they get in a crash and something happens to them or someone close to them.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:20 pm |
  240. Phong

    Maybe because they think it's not a necessity, and it's a nuisance. They might think that those couple of seconds can be well spent using to drive, but those few seconds can come back to haunt them. They don't think about the possibility of getting in a car accident. You never think that your are unlucky enough to get in an accident, and those things only happen in books, movies, ads, and in the news.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:21 pm |
  241. Myranda

    Because people think it's "cool" to just move throughout the car... but my friend's sister died and she was sitting in the middle of the vehicle and now I know to be in a car with a seatbelt.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:22 pm |
  242. Tiffany

    people usually always ignore their seatbelts because they think its cool that their breaking the rules and that their "too tough" to need to be safe, but the truth is that they dont know the dangers and injuries that you put yourself in when you dont wear a seatbelt.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:30 pm |
  243. rachael

    I personally think that this is a very inteligent commercial. Also it can inspire adults to be safer with there families. I think people ignore seat belts because they don't think that a car accident would ever happen to them so they don't take the precautions that are needed. I think everyone in my town of Fishers should help prevent injuries and keep our families safe. 🙂

  244. mr. sebela plus program 2

    One student said that younger people think that they are invincible or they just think it is annoying. Another student thought that a lot of people think that it is not going to happen to me. Some people think that they just do not have to wear them. Others said that it is uncomfortable.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:40 pm |
  245. Alaina

    I believe that many people ignore the seatbelt warnings because they don't think it could happen to them. Most of the time the families don't pay attention to it because they have bigger and more important things to worry about. I think that some of the time they realize too late how important seatbelts can be, they don't understand the reprecutions that could take place. They need to spend more time trying to get their families to be safe and not put in harm's way.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:42 pm |
  246. Chelsea

    I think some people do not wear seat belts because some people do not care about their safety. So people do not care if they are hurt, so they choose not to wear it. Some people might forget to put it on too.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:46 pm |

    that they think that it wont hapen because they think that they will not crash they say that they wount hapen.

  248. Kassarah

    I believe that many people do not wear seat belts simply because they are too lazy to put them on. They think, "It won't make a difference" but, it will. People need to realize this and not be lazy about their own safety.

    I think that people don't wear seat belt because they haven't received the concequences that happen when you don't wear you seat belt like getting pulled over or getting in a bad accident.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:47 pm |
  251. Jasmine

    I think that people don't wear seat belts because they believe that nothing is going to happen to them. Some people might even believe that they are safe without having to wear one. Many people don't really think about the possibilities that they can have an accident.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:47 pm |
  252. Dirk

    I feel like it sets an example for what happens during crashes.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:47 pm |
  253. Antonio

    The reason that people do not wear their seat belts is that they might forget to put the seat belt on. Then again people might not put their seat belts on because they are annoyed by them since if you extend the seat belt to much it will lock on the person. So then the person will not be able to move at all.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:47 pm |
  254. Veronica

    I think that some people still don't wear seat belts because they are uncomfortable and they don't think it is such a big danger to not wear them.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:48 pm |
  255. Yuliana

    I think despite the danger people do not wear seatbelts because some people are to lazy to put it on and other people think they are to cool to wear a seatbelt .

    February 23, 2010 at 5:48 pm |
  256. Jake

    I think the Public Service annoucement was a powerful message. Everyone should wear a seatbelt. If you don't wear a seatbelt you could get seriously injured during an accident.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:48 pm |
  257. Christina

    I believe that people do not wear seat belts just because they do not care. Many people think to much about themselves and think that they are never going to get in an accident. They also might be in a hurry and just forget.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:48 pm |
  258. Sheryl

    People still ignore the seat belt because they just forget. Also people might feel uncomfortable because it itches.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:48 pm |
  259. Nancy

    I think that the reason that people don't wear their seat belts even if they all ready know how dangerous it is to not wear a seat belt is because sometimes people are in a hurry and don't think that it is really necessary.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:48 pm |
  260. Kelsey

    They ignore them out of habit. And they think it is not comfortable.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:49 pm |
  261. Julie

    I think the biggest reason that most people don't wear their seatbelt is because they are in a hurry to get where ever they are going and they just forget to put it on.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:49 pm |
  262. Berenice

    I honestly believe the reason why some people do not buckle up is because they might be in a hurry to get somewhere very important, and they forget about to buckle up their seat belt. Another reason why I believe many people forget to buckle up is because they do not care, and they think nothing bad will happen. They think that they might not even get hurt in an accident so they don't bother to buckle up.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:49 pm |
  263. Diana

    Some people do not wear their seat because they do not believe they are danger or that anything will happen to them. But what most of them do not realize is that they are setting a really bad example and could damage the life of someone they have influenced by not wearing their seat belt.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:49 pm |
  264. Marisol

    I think that people still don't wear a seat belt, because there are a lot of people who may think they won't get into a car accident. Also, because they know it is very dangerous, but still some people can think it is ok not wear a seat belt. That is why I think people don't wear seat belts.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:49 pm |
  265. Angelica

    I think a lot of people don't use there seat belts because they want to move around in there seats or some people fall asleep in the car and don't like the seat belt in the way. They probably think it's one out of a million chance that they will get into a car crash, but you never know so everyone should use there seat belt to be a lot more safer.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:50 pm |
  266. Melissa

    Some people are just to stubborn to care about their well being and they simply do not believe the facts. Seat belt are not uncomfortable and they do not generally get in the way so there really is not any other reason for people to not were your seat belt.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:50 pm |

    Seatbelts are important to the American people but people dont where them because they think they wont get in an accident. BUT WEAR YOUR SEATBELT!!!!

    Despite danger, many people do not wear their seat belts because some people think that they drive safe and do not think that anything will happen to them. Other people may not care to pit their seat belts on because they may think it is dumb to do it. Some may think that they are close to home so they do not put their seat belt on.

    People don't think about wrecks, they forget, and some people find them uncomfortable. Let's face it we all have or have had these reasons...I do at least...

    February 23, 2010 at 5:50 pm |
  270. Roberta

    I think people don't wear seat belts because of the restriction of being stuck in one place. People may like to move freely even though the seat belt protects them.

  271. Madison

    I think that people ignore seat belts because they are lazy and it might irritate them. They also might think that they are cool and don't need to wear them. They might also think that they are not going to get in a wreck.

  272. Antonia

    In my opinion, I think people don't wear seat belts because they think they are not important but anything can happen in less than a minute! I always yell at my brother because he never wears his seat belt and he says because he thinks they are not important so then i give him a long speech(:

    February 23, 2010 at 5:51 pm |
  273. Jeremiah

    I believe that seat belts are ignored due to the fact that there are to many young drivers and they do not think that bad accidents can happen to them. Lots of drivers who havnt had an accident are not aware of the danger and do not realize how important seat belts are.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:51 pm |
  274. Taylor

    I think that people assume that nothing will happen. I've heard people say,"Oh, nothing's going to happen!". Those people are careless. If you don't bother to wear a seat belt it's practically the same as juming off a cliff! DO NOT JUMP OFF!!! Value life!!!!

    February 23, 2010 at 5:51 pm |
  275. Teresa

    I think that some people may ignore seat belts because they might be in a hurry to get to their destination or some other similar reason to that. Plus, many people might not believe that just a little strap can keep them safe, and do not see a reason to wear a seat belt.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:51 pm |
  276. Jesus

    Everyone thinks that it's a drag having to put it on and take it off over and over again, knowing that you are a good driver and will never be in a crash, it also feels uncomfortable.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:52 pm |
  277. saray

    Well maybe they think that it doesn't really matter and that nothings going to happen to them on their way. But the the truth is you always have to take precaution because they never know what is going to happen.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:52 pm |
  278. Emily

    I think that they ignore seat belts because they are in hurries, or they don't think it's cool. They might also be bothered by them, or they forget, and before you know it, it may be too late. They also probably doubt it could happen to them.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:53 pm |

    Some people do not put them because they think nothing is going to happen to them. Some are also to lazy to wast their time on doing that.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:53 pm |
  281. Rachel

    People don't put on seat belts because sometimes their seat belts don't always work in their cars. So it is not there fault. But other times people are just flat out lazy and do not want to obey the law.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:56 pm |

    People dont realize that they could have an accident at any time and dont were there seat belts to be safe.

  285. Anna

    People don't think that seat belts are really important. I was riding in a car with my friends and they didnt have their seatbelts on. They said"Why are you wearing your seatbelt?" I told them because its safer.The mom heard me and buckled her seatbelt too.

    February 23, 2010 at 6:18 pm |
  286. Danni (extra credit :) )

    well i think that they try to be "cool". people think that wearing seat belts are lame, when really they are not lame and they save lives! when i was in second grade i witnessed a horrible car accident, where a motercycle ran a red light and a car smashed into it, the people went flying off and it was traumatizing! who knows whether the person was wearing a seat belt or not but if they weren't, their injuries could have been 10 times worse! i always wear my seat belt, because as they say, "its better to be safe, than sorry."

    February 23, 2010 at 6:22 pm |
  287. Rose

    People don't wear it because it is not a law in some states. Also, if you bend down to get something the seat belt may not let you reach that far. Also, seat belts on big people may be uncomfortable.

    February 23, 2010 at 6:24 pm |
  288. Antonio

    People do not wear seat belts because they think this wont happen to me the odds of getting in a wreck is one in a million wich in not true.

    February 23, 2010 at 6:25 pm |
  289. Jadzia

    I believe that people don't wear seat belts because they might think that it won't happen to them but there is a big chance that it will!

    February 23, 2010 at 6:26 pm |
  290. FRANCISCO

    Whats the point. If you get in a crash you go to the hospital anyway.

    February 23, 2010 at 6:26 pm |
  291. Jadzia

    I think that people don't wear seat belts because they just don't feel like wearing the seat belts because they are annoying!

    February 23, 2010 at 6:27 pm |
  292. Eric

    I think that the reason people ignore seatbelts is to make people think the person is a rebel and doesn't care about rules. Also, that they don't care about the punishments. I belive that if most police officers would enforce the laws there would be more people with their seatbelts on. Thats what i think about why people who dont wear seatbelts

    February 23, 2010 at 6:28 pm |
  293. Sammy

    I agree with Eric he is right!

    February 23, 2010 at 6:29 pm |
  294. Eric

    I think that the reason people do not wear there seatbelts is an act to make other people know that the person is a rebel. Also that they don't care about the punishment. I also believe that more people would wear their seatbelts if police would stop giving warnings and give them a ticket. When the Law was passed that is your warning. Thank you

    February 23, 2010 at 6:32 pm |
  295. Kevin

    I think that people that don't wear seatbelts are not responsible or have any common sense. when some people wear seatbelts and they hurt they just think that it wont matter and I haven't crashed so they won't ever. I think that peple that wear them have good common sense and are very smart.

    February 23, 2010 at 6:34 pm |
  296. Dhruv

    The only people who don't wear seatbelts are the ones who either just don't care, feel invincible, or think that a car accident won't happen to them. These people don't know the risk of their chance that they're taking, and are just putting their own lives at stake. If only those people how quickly an accident could happen, they would probably be more careful and wear their seat belts.

    February 23, 2010 at 6:38 pm |

    I think that people don't wear seat belts because they are lazy and they think they are dumb and they want to look cool.

  298. JoJo

    I think that people just don't wear seatbelts because they just don't think that they need to, but hen they get in that car crash,, I'm pretty sure that their thoughts change pretty quickly.

    February 23, 2010 at 6:49 pm |
  299. Jack

    They really don't care.

    February 23, 2010 at 6:49 pm |
  300. katelynn

    The reason why seatbelts might be ignored is people might think it itches their neck or hurts them, but i think you need a seatbelt on!!! Safety comes first and wearing a seatbelt is better than getting in a car wreak and dying.

    February 23, 2010 at 6:49 pm |
  301. Justin

    My grandfather doesn't usually wear a seat belt. He says it is because he is still not used to there being seatbelts in cars. He also complains of the pain that it gives him on his neck. I tell him that it is better to have a small pain in the neck that can heal than to have a much larger pain that could be fatal.

    February 23, 2010 at 6:50 pm |
  302. Carlton

    Well, why do some people drink? Why do some peole smoke? Why do some people use illegal drugs. Because they are to lazy/dumb to use their brains and think about the safty of themselves and others.
    These people need to be taught a lesson.

    February 23, 2010 at 6:57 pm |
  303. LaDahn

    i think that people dont like to wear there seat belt because when they was a kid they didnt want to where a seat belt and they had to and now since they are all big they dont want to where there seat belt

    February 23, 2010 at 6:59 pm |
  304. Jenna

    Some people think that they might be uncofertable. I did until I saw how badly injured you can get if you dont wear one. Police officers need to pay more close attention to the people that dont wear them so they will not get hurt.

    February 23, 2010 at 6:59 pm |
  305. Josh

    I believe seat belts aren't worn because people believe the chances of them getting in a wreck are negligible. Many people, including me, just sometimes don't feel like it could happen and even if it did, the wreck probably wouldn't be great enough to throw me from my seat or hurt me

    February 23, 2010 at 7:01 pm |
  306. Caroline

    I think that people just think that nothing will happen or it could hurt them.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:05 pm |

    They could think that nothing would happen or that the seatbelt irrittats them.

    Nico- People don't think that seatbelts will really help you get out of a injury.
    Savannah-People think that they are too cool to wear seatbelts.
    Jade-People dont realize that they can die, especially teenagers.
    Isis-They don't think that seatbelts are that important.
    Nick-they don't realize how much damage it will cost
    Lexi- they want to be able to move around in their cars.
    Triston- people are too lazy
    Rori- they don't care about their seatbelts anymore
    Keyla- They don't care about the law.
    Guellermo- They don't like to wear their seatbelts
    Jhanae- They think they can drive too good to get into an accident.

    I think some people might not wear seatbelts because they think that they are good drivers and they are not going to get into a crash. However, they don't realize all of the other driver's out there that could crash INTO THEM!

  311. Dominic

    I think people ignore seat belts because its safe and afficiant but it could cause problems of suffacation in the middle of a crash and they are just not confertable

    February 23, 2010 at 7:31 pm |
  312. Andrea

    I think people don't wear seatbelts because they don't realize the danger they can get into when they drive. Even when they are a passenger, they can still get hurt in an accident. Just because you are a passenger, doesn't mean that you are immortal!!! Also, some people think that a seat belt is time consuming, if they are just going down the street. But, you never know if an animal or person will walk onto the street and you have to swerve away and hit a tree!! Some people think seat belts are uncomfortable, so they risks their lives to be comfortable. WHERE IS THE SENSE IN THAT?

    February 23, 2010 at 7:32 pm |
  313. Chelsea

    I think seat belts are some of the reasons for deaths while in a car accident, people say wear your seat belts it'll save your life! But in many cases people have been trapped in their car because of them, or even choked! In my opinion they need to be safer, and there needs to be a way you can get out easily!

    February 23, 2010 at 7:35 pm |

    I think seat belts are some of the reasons for deaths while in a car accident, people say "Wear your seat belt, it can save your life!" But in many cases people have either been trapped, choked, and killed by a seat belt. I personally don't wear one, even though my parents are always on me about it and I am always in trouble for it!... And in one case, a family was driving and got hit by a drunk driver, and only the one NOT (yes I said NOT!) wearing a seat belt lived out of 3 people!

    February 23, 2010 at 7:41 pm |

    People don't wear seatbelts because..they think it wont happen to them. If they drive not that far away they think they don't need to wear them because it is so close.

    People don't wear seat belts for a number of reasons. They aren't thinking, they are thinking too much, they don't think they will ever get in an accident, or they are just too lazy and in a rush to get somewhere. They don't understand the importance of wearing a seat belt.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:49 pm |
  318. Daniel

    Well I think that people don't wear their seat belts because even though its simple to do its kind of annoying to them to get it turned aroound right and to click it. And like everyone else is saying, people don't think the accident will happen to them.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:50 pm |
  319. Grace

    I don't see why people DON'T wear seat belts. They're not that much of a bug while driving. People don't know how much seat belts protect you. A seat belt can easily save you from a fatal accident.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:51 pm |
  320. Travis

    I think the reason why people don't where seat belt is that it feels uncomfortable to use. If it feels uncomfortable to use, that means it would make it harder for them to drive.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:52 pm |
  321. Reginald

    I believe that some people don't wear seat belts because, either, they just forget, or they don't understand how injured they could get. Also, some people think that they are good drivers so they don't need seat belts.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:54 pm |
  324. Gordon

    I think that people don't put on seat belts because they are just sick and tired of a belt that is trying to choke them so they just take them off and in a matter of seconds they get in a crash and die or if they get lucky they survive.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:54 pm |
  325. michael

    I think that people don't wear their seat belts because they think that they don't apply to the CA law and that they are so special.Maybe, they are not comfortable with their seat belts on or they may think that they are too cool for seat belts.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:54 pm |

  327. Eli

    I know a person that refuses to wear a seatbelt, because that is what killed her uncle in a car accident. the odds are very unlikely that the same thing could happen twice, but i think people could be afraid of that.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:56 pm |

    I think that people don't use seat belts is because people tell them not to so they want to break the rules to look coll

    February 23, 2010 at 7:56 pm |
  331. Shyanne

    I think the reason people ignore the fact that people dont wear seatbelts is because they dont think that it is important because they drive the best or know they wont get in an accident. Even my mom thinks that, but she always puts on her seatbelt. When people relalize that seatbelts are important, they understand that annything can happen.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:56 pm |

  334. Derrick

    Why, despite the dangers, do drivers not put their seat belts? I think that drivers don't think that anything dangerous will happen to them. They think that the freeway is safe to not put seat belts. They might also think that driving with seat belts is cool and for the adventurous, but it is not.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:57 pm |
  335. Angel

    I believe the reason people ignore seat belts is because they want to be "cool" and think it will probably never happen to them. However the moment they get in a car crash they know they have made the wrong decision and perhaps they will learn once they get in the accident.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:58 pm |
  336. Connor

    I think that people ignore seat belts because they think that they are not helpful. Also that they are to lazy to buckle up. If they can it can keep them alive.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:58 pm |
  337. Tyson

    I believe that people don't think that its cooll to other people. Also, people may not like it on their neck while they drive. To fix that is to buy one of the cusions that go onto the strap on the seat belt.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:58 pm |
  338. Kemari

    Throughout all over the world people are underestimating the safety and importance. When you cloud your head with where you need to go and how much time you have the seat belt, is what make sure you get there safe or at all. It's a personal decision to be safe and responsible and take a minute to buckle a seat belt.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:58 pm |
  339. Zachary

    They ignore seatbelts because they are just being lazy and not being safe. It probably makes them feel uncomfortable and they just don't like it.

    February 23, 2010 at 7:59 pm |
  340. Li

    I think peoples don't wear seat belts because they think the chance of being in a car accident is less. But for me, i think when you're in injured or in an hostpital it's too late for you to wear your seatbelt back

    February 23, 2010 at 8:01 pm |
  341. Hannah

    I think it's ignored because people think we've never had a bad acadint
    before so why would we have one now? If the person has never been in a car because they're just learned to buckle. All I'm saying is people need to make sure they don't make any dumb mistakes about buckling up. Alway's remember: Click it or Ticket!

    February 23, 2010 at 8:05 pm |
  342. Rafin

    Some people ignore wear seat belts because they think that seat belts wont help in an accident or will not get into one. They think it is just an annoying strap that pulls you back to your seat.

    PEOPLE SHOULD STOP TALKING AND START WARING THEIR SEAT DELTS.

    February 23, 2010 at 8:14 pm |
  346. Brannon

    The people that do not wear seat belts do this because they may think it is uncomfortable or "uncool." This is similar to why kids do not do their homework.

    February 23, 2010 at 8:27 pm |
  347. Meagan

    I beleive that some people don't wear seat belts because they have never been in an aciedent and think they never will be, because they're good drivers. i beleive they are unaware of the dangers and the wreckless driving of other people.

    February 23, 2010 at 8:28 pm |
  348. Mitchell

    In my opinion, people who don't wear seat belts are just plain lazy, I mean, who doesn't want to spend two seconds every time they get in a car to save their lives?

    February 23, 2010 at 8:46 pm |
  349. Rachel

    I think that people don't wear seatbelts because they are eather: drunk, lazy, not listening or just crazy. I truley don't understand why people don't wear seatbelts, there are tons of accidents a day and you may have been lucky this tome but next time you might not be so lucky. A lot of kids probably loose their parents because they wern't wearing a seatbelt and then got in an accident.

    February 23, 2010 at 8:51 pm |
  350. toby

    people don't wear seatbelts because their friends don't and they think its cool to follow others then to do what is right. but we should have a right to wear one or not.

    February 23, 2010 at 8:59 pm |
  351. Judy

    I think I know why some people ignore seatbelts. When I was younger, I didn't put on seatbelts because I thought that when you don't put on seatbelts, it's SO much fun. I thought with most of my friends that when you get on a car and just IGNORE seatbelts, It was kind of like a ride. For example, when the car turns, We get to lean sideways. But when I got older, like I am now, I learnt that accidents could happen any time. And when I started wearing seatbelts, I just got into a habit of wearing them, and started to put on seatbelts most of the time I got in a car. Now that is only from childrens point of view. I'm still a child, so I didn't really consider why ADULTS ignore seatbelts. But I think that the reason is being forgetful, or that adult is careless. Now that I think of this topic, I wonder why there are no seatbelts in the bus. It's true that some has them, but most don't. Isn't a bus same as a car, exept bigger? So I think the goverment should make a new law. Put on seatbelts in the bus.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:04 pm |
  352. Zachariah

    Many people don't wear seatbelts because some people will be in a rush, or won't pay attention, so they ignore the seat belt. Though, some people also think "Whats the chance of a accident?" Not high, but if you don't wear a seat belt, it can result in life or death.

    February 23, 2010 at 9:21 pm |
  353. Vince

    I think the reason why people ignore the seatbelt is because they don't really care and the don't really think that they would have a accident. Besides if you don't have a seatbelt you are gonna have to pay for a ticket or even have a big causality which involves to death.
    SO PLEASE WEAR YOU SEATBELT

    February 23, 2010 at 9:23 pm |
  354. Benny

    Most people think that an accident is almost never gonna happen to them, they also don't think it's necessary....until you have a car accident

    I think it is becus school bus don't have them so kids learn to not put them on also they are uncomfortable and they aren't cute and the people are trying to be cool

    well, i'm sure they've been very confident about their driving skill and they think that only toyota prius cars can lead to those kind of accidents but they are not driving a toyota at all!
    so on one hand,lacking the awareness of the coming danger is one of the main reasons, i think. on the other hand, it's extremely irresponsible not to wear safe belts, to themselves and to the people who care them.
    and drivers have't make it a habbit to wear safe belts the moment they get in the car. in my country,China, the government takes mandatory measures to force drivers to wear safe belts. so drivers have naturally developed the habbit of wearing a safe belt.
    and actually i have a thrilling experience myself. i was in my dad's car when a truck in front of us made a sudden brake, if there hadn't been a belt that pulled me backwards, i would have been next to death...
    so i call on all drivers to wear safe belts!!!

    Some people might think that since they drive so well they will never get in a crash, Or since they have never have needed a seat belt and havn't gotten cought for not having it on they would think that they drive so good the cops wont pull them over and give them a ticket to buckle up untill its too late.

    People think they are cool when they don't wear seatbelts. They think that the odds are that I won't get in a car crash but some people did and look where that got them.

    I think it's because they're just plain Lazy.
    1. Get in the car.
    2. Talk to the other passenger.
    3. Speed off
    With no care in the world about how they're a danger to others.

    I don't get why people don't wear seatbelts. It takes less than two seconds to put it on. Some people say its uncool but its cooler than dying in a car accident.

    most people probably use seat belts, but inconsistently. you forget, or you have a bag that doesn't fit, or there's one extra person in the car. it's such a little thing that so easily slips your mind

  365. Lucas

    I think it's because they are uncomfortable and can get in the way. I don't really like seat belts for the same reason. Another reason why is that its the law. But sometimes we just forget and thats that.

  366. Vince

    I think the reason why people don't wear seat belts is because they think there "cool" and they think there driving skills are the best and can beat anyone in a race. But when they do race a don't have a set-belt on they die cause of crashing into a car or a wall.
    WEAR A SEATBELT PLEASE

    I think people don'y wear seat belts because the person says to himself/ herself "I will drive so carefully and I won't get in a crash." I think that is just being over confident in their driving.

    Seat belts

    Seat belts are never worn
    And they get the swarm

    Seat belts protect us
    As well as the U.S.

    Seat belts prevent us from death
    when you think it's cool

    So put on your seat belt
    and dont let the car melt

    I think some people ignore seatbelts because if they are going to some place not to far away they think they will be fine. Or because they think they are all that when driving so they thik tey don't need a seatbelt.

    They don't do the simple task of putting on a seat belt because they think they are immune to the accidents that can happen. And that decision can decide between life or death.

  372. Jeffery

    I think that seatbelts are ignored because most people think they are irritating and uncomfortable.They are also ignored because people think they will keep you inside the car if you need to get out. Some people do not like to wear seatbelts if they do not go far on a ride.

    February 23, 2010 at 11:41 pm |
  373. Evan

    Some people don't wear seat belts because the requirement isn't a good law, the government shouldn't care if you wear one or not. It doesn't work either, personally I have gotten two tickets for not wearing a seatbelt and i still don't wear it, in fact i was just pulled over tonight and I was just lucky the officer didn't see me put it on before he came to talk to me.

    they don't wear seatbelts because they think that nothing will happen to them, that they are careful drivers, they will nevr crash. They don;t know what can happn, you should always be prepared for the unthinkable no matter what the situation

    Sometimes people don't wear their seatbelts because they don't think they will get in a crash.Also, people just forget to put on the seatbelt.When people are either excited or depressed the seatbelt just doesn't come on.

    I know my Grandfather doesn't wear seat belts because a friend died in a car accident because he was wearing one (couldn't get out). I don't think everyone should assume that if someone's not wearing a seat belt they're ignorant or stupid; that's not always the case. For the record, I do wear one all the time.

  382. Brianna

    I think some people ignore seat belts because they don't see the point in them. Some teens try to act "cool" so they don't put on their seat belts. Some adults may not just because they don't want to or because when they were young there were no seat belts in cars. I think it all depends on your point of view. I wear a seat belt more out of habit than anything else. It's a good habit to get into. It could someday save your life.

    I think that people ignore seartbelts bacuse they don't feel the need to use them. However, Many deaths could have been prevented if they would have used their seatbelts. so, if you are smart you will wear your seatbelt.

    Seat belts are probably ignored because people have different opinions about them. For example, seat belts can be uncomfortable and you can also have the risk of dying from one too. Another reason some people dont wear seat belts are beacuse you think your to cool for them. If your a teen and your driving with your friends sometimes you just want to show that your cool! I personally believe you should wear your seat belt no matter what. I recently lost a classmate, a real true friend from a car accident. She was not wearing her seat belt. After i experienced her dealth i realised i dont want that to happen to me or my family. So now everytime i am in the car i make it a habit to put buckle up!!!

    February 24, 2010 at 10:15 am |
  387. Mac

    I think that this happens beacuse people do not ake them seriously. They do not want to put seat belts on beacuse they can be a hassle. It can be fun to be able to roam around a car while it is driving. Some people may also forget to puit them on.

    I hate to admit it, but when it comes right down to it, some people are simply too LAZY to buckle up. They're in a hurry, they're stressed, yada yada yada, and therefore sometimes simply forget to fasten it.

    I think people don't wear seat belts because they are uncomfortable or they are too confident in their driving. A couple days ago cameras by a 7-11 store caught a man who was not wearing his seatbelt get into a car accident. He didn't survive. That just goes to show that you should always wear a seatbelt.

    i dont mean to say this but the people who dont wear seatbelts are sorta stupid.

    People dont think a crash can happen to them. The problem is people think to themselves "Oh it wont happen to me it happens so rarely." well they are wrong. Thats probably why people ignore wearing seat belts. Also, parents should also start teaching their kids and themselves to wear them. I believe its mostly parents faults because they dont teach their kids when they are young to wear seat belts.

    Why Do Some People Ignore Seat belts? Some reason I think people ignore seat belts is because they think o-well i never will get in a crash because i am a safe driver or I will not get caught . But, SEE! what people don't know is that no Matter what you think you don't know what is going to happen! So its better safe then sorry! and it help when you have little kids in the car who are watching you and think its okay not to put theirs on. And Parents y'all get mad and upset when they don't. So you need to set an example for them as well. SO please USE YOUR SEAT BELTS!. 1st thing you should do before you start your car is put your seat belt on!

    People Ignore seat belts because they think "Oh i won't be in an accident today. I'll just leave it alone." Or they think it's cool to not wear seat belts in the car.My mom forgets sometimes but I remind her. And there's an alarm in the car that flashes when someone isn't wearing their seat belt.I always put on my seat belt but if i forget my mom reminds me to.My brother just got a new car with automatic seat belts, so if you forget it won't be problem. They tighten and come off when you open and close the door. People, you ALWAYS have chances of getting in an accident when in a vehicle,even if you are very careful. WEAR YOUR SEAT BELTS FOR SAFETY!

    Seatbelts aren't considered "cool" now. When you are riding around in your convertible with your friends, and you have your sunglasses on and the wind i blowing in your hair; the last thing you want is your seatbelt on.

    In response to what Nawon wrote, we were wondering why seatbelts are not required on buses in the US? Isn't that unsafe?

    I think people should wear seat belts because some think that they'll be fine but if they get in an accident they could die or be siverely injured

    i think people dont wear seat belts because they dont feel like putting them on or they say it hurts them

    i think that some people don't wear seat belts because they don't like the feeling and sometimes people are just driving for two minutes. they also don't because they sometimes think that seatbelts are stupid.

    Some people don't wear seat belts just to be cool.Others can sometimes forget,but you should always wear your seat belt for safty reasons like. Sudden stops, car acedents, or an engine might blow.

    Some people ignore seatbelts because they don't think they need to wear them. Other people wear them all of the time because they know they're doing the right thing to do. Also, people don't think they need to wear seatbelts because they're trying to act cool but all they're really doing is putting themselfs in danger.

    February 24, 2010 at 2:39 pm |

    I think seatbelts are ignored because people think they dont need them they are just going somewhere close or because they think they wont ever crash. People should always wear a seatbelt it one day could save your life!

    people dont really care if they dont wear their seat belts because they dont think it will happen to them, they dont know how much hurt it will cause their kids,wife, or other family.

    Some people don't feel like they need them, like they think oh accidents always happen to other people, it's not going to happen to me, or they think that they are good enough driver's that if an accident was going to happen they can control it or do something and keep if from happening, well no matter how fast and hard you hit the brakes your not going to immediately come to a stop, your going to slide, and if its icy your really going to slide, so no matter if you think your 10 feet tall and bulletproof, in reality your not, if you get in a bad enough accident without your seat belt its going to mess you up pretty bad, but there are some people just forget to do it, i just recently lost my best friend in a car accident because she was not wearing her seat belt... so anytime you get in a car just put your seat belt on, no matter how cool or safe you think you are, it could happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere...

    Americans, today, have become very lazy through advances in our society. Most simply forget, but of that 8% that doesn't wear seatbelts, they're the people that deliberately refuse their own safety when riding in an automobile. I know they really are a life saver (through experience), but if people don't want to face the facts; that's their own choice to risk getting a hefty fine and their life itself.

    People dont where there seat belts at sometime because they are pressed for time and need to get somewhere. Putting on a simple seat belt is not on their mind when they hop in to there vehicles. Little do they know how much a seat belt will help if they get in an accident.

    I personaly think seat belts are great. But some times some people cant where seat belts cause they had a surgery. Like my dad had gastric bypas surgery so he cant where a seat belt.

    I think there are different reasons for different people. Sometimes people forget. Some people think it's too uncomfortable. Some people don't care to put it on. I sometimes forget to put on my seat belt when I sit in the back seat. But always when I'm in the front seat, the first thing i do is put on my seat belt.

    I've seen alot of people get hurt by not wearing seatbelts. I think the Department of transportation needs to kick law enforcement up a few notches. Even when police men see people talking on the phone and not wearing seatbelts, and what do they do most of the time ? Ignore it! The police men really need to [strap it down.]

    Sometimes I forget my seat belt too and the reason is because my parents don't remind me. I think this is a problem world-wide and it desperately needs to be addressed. This could save a lot of kid's lives!

    I personally think that SOME people doesn't wear seat belts because they simply forgot, and some people (like me) just feels uncomfortable when you're wearing seat belts. Sometimes, though not most, some people are at such a rush and thoughts are going through your head at 100mph, for example, you've gotten a news that morning that someone you care dearly about is at the hospital and you don' t have anyone to tell you to wear seat belts, then you simply don't care just about anything else except getting yourself there.

    i think people don't wear seatbelts because they think there to "cool" for them.Like in my health class in school today we were talking about how people think it's cool to do drugs. I think you would be cool if you buckled up. i mean haven't you ever heard of "click it or tiket"? well do you think your cool if you're in an accident and your face is all scarched up because i DO NOT think that would be cool so buckling your seat belt is in not buckling is OUT! and what if your car is a toyota no affence to toyota but if your car doed something like those kindof problems i would want to be bukled wouldent you? think about it i know i would.

    because they are anoying sometimes so they dont use them due to the fact that they just get in the way and people who are with some one in a car that are not useing there seat belt they should tell them to put it on or get out of the car and say im not going thats what i think

    First of all, we are necessary to talk about security education. Most of the people know how dangerous car accident is. They might have seen that crual car accident caused by ignoreing wear seat belts through the news or a news paper.But, when they tend to forget that terrible accident scene they might be happen to them.
    In brief, education is the most important. In order to save their life and their family from the danger, they have to receive the drastic security education.The government also stimulate more strict rule about a violation of the law.

    I believe that seat belts are ignored because people are just too lazy to put them on. Also, if you are just driving a few miles people always think that nothing can happen, but accidents can always happen no matter what. Another reason would be that if you are trying to squish a bunch of people in the car sometimes you can't get the seat belts on, but still you should not be trying to fit a bunch people in a car in the first place.

    I think they are ignored because they are not "cool" or "in style", or maybe just because people are flat out lazy! Some think they are indestructable...

    I think that people don't wear seatbelts because they think that they are not going to get into a car accident. People seem to not realize that they have the same chance as everyone else currently driving on the road. Also many people probably have other things on their mind that they think are "more important" than seatbelts... when almost every time seatbelts are more important.

    I think people don't wear their seatbelts because they might be occupied with something else dangerous. Like talking on their cell phones or even texting.

    People ignore their seat belts because they feel invincible when they are in their cars. They feel like if they drive safe then they wont get hurt or in a wreak. But the true danger is other careless drivers.

  555. chappy

    i think becuse they forget or think they dont need them or they say to themself it just to the market or park but thinking that they arent going to be in crash

  556. Alina

    Well I think that some people don't wear their seatbelts because they think it is impossible for them to have an accident because they have never had one before. That is very wrong. People don't know when an accident can happen. Idk what is going on with them.

    February 25, 2010 at 11:35 pm |

    People ignore their seat belts because they don't think that anything happen to them, so they don't think of it as a safety issue.

  558. Hopps

    People don't wear seat belts because they think they don't need it. They think that they are good drivers or it just won't happen to them. But they don't think about other drivers. Even if you are a good driver doesn't mean that someone else isn't a bad driver and could hit you. And on top of that its the Law!

    Probably because they don`t take it as seriously and they won`t even give it a thought untill they acually get in a car crash.

  561. Jamie

    People don't wear seatbelts because they always think that they're never going to have a crash. They also think that driving a short distance makes it less likely to crash. I don't understand why people don't because it could happen to anybody, anywhere, anytime.

  562. Kelli

    Some people may wear when their going out of town,But in town they think it won't happen to them.Yet some crashes happen when you are just backing out of your driveway. It is very concerning

    Some people ignore seatbelts because it is uncomfortable to move around and it traps you in place. Some people like to be comfortable sitting in place. They want to have a space between to move. But that is not the only reason, some people think there cool without seatbelts, seatbelts are for baby, they are worthless. Even though, they don't know how unsafe you are when you don't have seatbelts. Seatbelts are very important.

    Ok...To be honest, seatbelts are the biggest drag! Sure, sure they protect you and stuff, but its not like they are that comfortable. If you want us to were them, why not make them nice and comfortable?

    February 26, 2010 at 10:48 am |
  575. Cody

    I think that a lot of the reason people dont wear seat belts are because of the way they were raised. Older people didnt wear seat belts when they were younger because seat belts were not that big of a deal, so they dont wear them now. Younger teens dont wear them because they say it is uncomfortable or they think they dont need to wear seat belts because nothing bad will happen to them and that like most teens, they think they are invincible. Also for the middle aged adults, i think that a lot of times, they didnt have to wear seat belts because their parents didnt grow up in the era that seat belts were important. So therefore the middle age dont have a habit of wearing seat belts, which means they wont have their kids wearing seat belts so when these kids start driving, chances are that they wont wear seat belts either.

    seatbelts save lives plain and simple, i'm tired of hearing "if my friend would have had it on he would have died", no body said there gurenteed and nobody ever said they don't have setbacks and besides how would you know if they would have died? i have been personally saved by a seatbelt and know others who have too, more than "might have died" if they had one on.

  577. Rachel

    Some people ignore wearing seatbelts because (if they are younger) it makes them look cooler. Some people though may not like to wear a seatbelt because it is uncomfortable. The people that don't wear their seatbelts will learn to wear them one way or another. It may be the hard way but they'll learn.

    Some People ignore seatbelts because they think that they won’t need to wear seatbelts. If they don’t wear seatbelts. Then they might be thrown from the car. Just like my real dad when we were in a car wreck. I’m still here because wore my seatbelt. so people wear your seatbelt.

    seat belts are unneeded. just dont be retarted while driving and you should be fine. to get a ticket for not wearing a seat is one of the dumpest laws ever. im just kidding seat belts save lives and are a vital part of driving.

  580. Jillian

    Some adults don't wear their seatbelts because they haven't had to in their past. Car crashes weren't as frequent as they are today. Children or teens today may not regularly wear their seatbelts because their parents never made them. Another reason there are so many crashes is because of over population. Another factor is location if you live out in the country you probably don't fear a car crash so you don't wear your seatbeat.

    February 26, 2010 at 11:02 am |
  581. Lindsey

    I think that people don't wear seatbelts for many reasons. One reason is because seatbelts aren't the most comfortable thing in the world. Another reason is laziness..they don't want to take 2 seconds to just buckle up. Also a lot of people are afraid to wear their seatbelts because they can save lives, but they can also end them too..it all depends on the type of wreck you get in. I do think it is very important to wear your seatbelt, though because it is a way bigger risk to not wear it than to wear it.

    February 26, 2010 at 11:03 am |
  582. wesley

    I think there is many reasons people don’t where there seat belts. For some teenagers they ether forget because they have ether not had a accident to give them a reason to think thqt it is important. Or they see it as something that is not cool. There is also the fact that seatbelts are very uncomfortable.

    February 26, 2010 at 11:03 am |
  583. Kayla

    I think seat belts are ignored cause people think that if their is a accident and their car is on fire the seat belt will prevent them from getting out and they will die of the fire. Another is that people think that they are the safest person in the world and wont need a seat belt when they really need it. I had a cousin who was driving a car without a seat belt and had a wreck and cause she didnt have it on she got thrown out the window.

    February 26, 2010 at 11:03 am |
  584. Megan

    I would say that the majority of people who don't wear seatbelts aren't wearing them because they are driving a short distance. Most people think they don't need it if they're driving somewhere maybe 10 minutes away. Seatbelts definately should be worn, but some people just haven't developed the habit of buckling up. It's not that most people have a problem with seatbelts, it's just that they don't think about it before leaving the driveway.

    February 26, 2010 at 11:04 am |
  585. Melissa

    I believe that many people do not wear their seatbelts because that they are invincible and they will never be in a situation where they will need a seatbelt. This is not a good way of thinking because even if it is not you fault, an accident can still occur. I know that a seatbelt holds your body in a vehicle when an accident happens, and if a person is not wearing a seatbelt, more than likely, they will be thrown from the vehicle. It is scary that people do not believe that they need seatbelts because it will one day save their life.

  587. bethany

    Some people still refuse to wear their seatbelts despite knowing the dangers and risks of not working them for several reasons. I believe many of the people are young and feel it is uncool or unnecessary because they don't believe any thing will ever happen to them. Some of the older generation may not wear seatbelts because the action of doing so was never really stressed to them, they grew up not wearing them so it's hard for them to change their ways now. Also, some peoples seatbelts may simply not work or they feel are too uncomfortable to wear. Regardless, they still should wear their seatbelt.

    I think people ignore seat belts because they think there all bad and cool that they don't even think about a seat belt thats why so many teenagers are dying here...because they don't think about a seat belt espasially when their car is crowded with rowdy friends so that why I think seat belts are ignored.

    February 26, 2010 at 11:07 am |
  589. Brycyn

    I think seatbelts are ignored because they cause rashes and people think that they are uncomfortable and divas think that they are unfashinable or "not in this season".So I say to ware your seat belt and don't be scard if it looks bad it looks fin so weare seatbelts to be safe.

    People probally don't wear seatbelts because they think that it doesn't happen often and it won't happen to them. I think that it is really important to wear your seatbelt because you never know when there is a careless driver near you, and right before you notice it, you could be in a bad situation.

    The fact is that most people ignore seatbelts because they think that nothing bad is going to happen to them because they convince themselves that it's going to happen to the next guy. Another reason is that most people, including myself, don't give a lot of thought to most things and are too preoccupied to deal with the situation at hand, in this case buckling up.

    Maybe because they don't know how bad you can get hurt by not wearing it. Being too short is NOT an exuse. Come on, if you're too short just put the lap-belt on.

  611. Kaitlyn

    I think that despite the statistics and resent laws that people dont wear seatbelts out of habit. That habit probably started because seatbelts are often uncomfortable. Some people dont wear seatbelts because they feel that they dont have to. In my opinion, not wearing a seatbelt is stupid and idiotic because if you do get in an accident you will seriously hurt yourself and possibly someone else.

    February 26, 2010 at 4:26 pm |

    The reason most people dont wear seat belts is either they are uncomfortable or raised without them. I cant put myself in those thoughts because...I just get used to them. But like my father who never weres one thats because in the days he was young, they didnt have seat belts in their cars. And now cars are much smarter as like my moms new Toyota, if you dont have your seat belt on and start driving it will beeb really loun untill you do put it on.

    seems to me that it's just an old habbit. before they came out with that law saying you need the seat belt it was just never thought of to put a seat belt on. it's all just out of habbit.

    I just think it is mostly because the driver thinks they are such good drivers, that they won't get hurt. But putting one on will save your life, and you never know what will happen. I'd rather take 2 seconds to put on a seatbelt and still be alive than get seriously injured, people are just risking their lives due to laziness.

    People might not wear seat belts because they think that they aren't going to get hurt. That they are safe drivers and wouldn't let that happen. People also might not wear seat belts because they think that it won't save you and its just some thing that gets the government money when they don't where it. Others might think it is just a hastle to put it on, especially when your in a hurry.

    I think that a seatbel is a waste of time for me. I go to [the] mall alot and the whole way thee nothing happens. Some times some dum thing happens to people because they are careless, not because they don't where a seatbelt. Sure, not wherein' a seatbelt probably makes a car accedent much worse, but if you are not so careless then noting will go wrong. Some people think it is a bigg deal not wherein' a seatbelt. They don't think it is wrong to not where a seatbelt on the bus tough. On my oldbus in like thirdgrade we were not evn aloud to where seatbelts on the bus. Now...the bus driver...does not evn worry about that. So seatbelts obviously do NOT matter.

Also there is so much on someones mind they forget about it or if your just in such a big hurry you just want to get in and go and not worry about it even though it only takes seconds... I wish people would just realize it only take 2 seconds of waiting to possibly save your life!...

    i think some people ignore seat belts because they think that if they drive really careful or ride with someone who drive careful then they don't need one but they never think of the other cars because some think that they will drive careful and/or people think the police won't catch them without one on.

    Being in a car crash before I know it is very important to wear seat belts, but that is because I've had that experience. Even I have to remind my parents every time we get into the car to wear their seat belts. All I know is people need to get it into their head that seat belts are important and will save you.

    I tink that people are just too lazy to put them on, or they don't like thhe feeling of them. They don't think they'll get in a crash, so waht do they do? Ignore the seatbelt. But if they ever get in a crash, they'll have second thoughts, I can assure you.

    I think that a lot of people just get into the habbit of not wearing a seat belt. One of the reasons is that people don't think they are going to get into an accident when the truth Is that they have as good as a chance as anyone and their seatbelt could save their life.

    reasons why poeple die in cars.
    1) they probly are trying to impress someone they know by speeding then they crash.
    2)They are a teenager that jst got a new car
    3)no seatbelt
    4)they are reading a book or doing the phone.(heres a story) once i was with my family in our RV and this lady was infront of us and she didnt do something for work and she kept leaning over and reading this thing. we were in traffic but still the lady could of leaned over while driving...and crashed

    People ignore the seat belts because they think, "oh it's just an ordinary day I'm not gonna get in a wreck." Even if it is the law to "click it, or ticket" they're just too lazy or careless to reach their arm around pull the belt down over their shoulder and go "click"
    Some people think they're perfect drivers and some think they're the only ones on the road. That is why people ignore the seat belts.

    February 28, 2010 at 4:18 pm |

    Because they are uncomfortable and they think nothing will happen to them. Some people just have other things on their mind and forget to put them on.

    I believe people don't wear seatbelts because they are in a rush to go somewhere and they forget to put them on. Also, people get into a habit of forgeting to put it on because nobody is there to remind them to do so.

    In my opinion people will only believe what they see or what has happened to them or someone close to them. I used to not where my seatbelt alot when I first started driving. But then one day I didn't have it on but while I was driving I decided to. About twenty minutes later one of my tires went off the road and I flipped my car. I opened my eyes and I was hanging upside down and had to crawl out my back window. Everyone around thought I was dead, and the police told me if I hadn't been wearing my seatbelt i wouldn't have made it out. So now everyone close to me does't think twice to put their seatbelt on before putting the car in gear. But I think people don't need to wait for something like that to happen before they realize it could save their lives, not only theirs but everyone they care about.

    In my opinion, I feel seat belts are a very important part of the driving experience for everyday use. If you are driving or riding in a car you should always wear a seat belt, people give all these excuses on how the belt hurts their neck or they find it constricting while driving, though these things are true about seat belts, if you found yourself in a wreck would you rather have whiplash from a seat belt or go through the window at 60 miles an hour...You would think that would be an easy question but obviously it is not considering statistics show that only 45% of people are wearing their seatbelt on a daily basis.

    most people who forget to put their seatbelts on either forget completely or they were doing something as they got in to the car (like carrying alot of things) they wont have the time, either way you should always put your seatbelt on before u move your vehical.

    Many people choose to not wear their seat belts when getting into a car, which is a serious matter because there is a bigger chance of them to die if they were to get into an accident. Others who do wear seat belts wonder why people would not wear them. Some reasons could be, they simply forget to put their seat belt on. Its happened to everyone at least once in their lifetime, including me. Another reason could be that they think that there is no way that they are going to get in an accident. Another is, they could be busy with doing something else when they get into their car. There are many reasons as to why people do not put their seat belts on, but in the end, seat belts should always be worn because they can save lives.

    most people dont really care about seat belts.Either they're rushing or they just dont feel like they may need it.,some other may think they'er not going to get caught.Or seat belts are not fun to wear,all people should wear them because they save you life or keep you from getting too much damage done to that person.Some think they ar not important, but they really are.

    I think people don't wear their seat belts because they might have a lot of things on their minds and I think they don't wear them is because their busy talking on the phone, texting, forget to put them on, don't think they need one, trying to get something out the back seat, taking care of a baby or a child, or some times they don't think about it. some times it's their fault or someone else's fault , but I put mine on im just saying.

    Everyday somebody in the world is not wearing a seatbelt.I dont seee how a seatbelt can do any harm unless it's to you.Seatbelts can't cause a reck it just can damage your face or kill you.Wearing seatbelts is safe because it can keep u from getting seriously injured.

    March 1, 2010 at 7:22 pm |

    I think that the biggest reason is because teens think that the chances are too low and that it will never happen. Others might think that they are just too cool to wear a seatbelt. It only takes two seconds to put one on, and in those two second you could save your life.

    People don't wear them because they think they are good drivers. But that doesnt mean that the person BESIDE them is. Or the person behind. They also want to look cool, but would you rather die or look safe? If you are reading this and you dont wear one all the time, make a note to change it because we dont need anymore unnescesary deaths with the earthquakes and Taliban.

    People don't wear seat belts because they think that it is no big deal when it really is. Sometimes they just want to be cool but mysel i think its safer to where a seat belt then someone dumb enough not to. It might hurt your neck which is probally the reason why people don't wear seat belts.

    People sometimes ignore putting on seatbelts because they are lazy or they don't care about their safety. Putting your seatbelt on can save your life and if you don't put it on, then you get in an accident, it could cause serious injuries or even death! Save your life, and put on a seatbelt!

    Not wearing seatbelts is illegal and not safe. People should always wear seatbelts. Many people will get killed if seat belts did not exist. The fine for not wearing a seatbelt should be at least $100 or even more.

    March 2, 2010 at 8:30 pm |
  683. Madeline

    Well there are various reasons... one, is people think it is cool to not wear seat belts and make fun of the kids who do... take this situation for instance... a kid is getting in his car, and a few cool school kids walk bye, they will probably say, "Wow, you wear a seat belt? What a nerd and safety geek!" and laugh and walk away, that will cause the kid some bad peer pressure

    I think some people don't realize that you can get hurt in an accident. Some people think that they are useless and are totaly oblivious to the kind of hurt people go through each day since they got into an accident wher they didn't have a seatbelt on. those people are just outright stupid to not have a seat belt on.

    Most people do not wear seat belts because they do not think they will ever get in a crash. The truth is any thing can happen, you could be with the worlds best driver and get in a car crash instantly.

    I think that some people don't put on their seat belts because they don't see how such an easy and effortless thing can save their lives. Some people may be distracted as they enter their car, especially early in the morning while going to work or school. Yet most people are probably overly confident of their driving skils and/or inmunity to death or other form of mistake, or accident.

    People might not want to wear seatbelts just because it’s the law, and they don’t want to follow. They also might just be lazy or forget. I know that some people also are “against” wearing seatbelts because they believe that they kill, rather than save lives.

    I think that some people don't wear seatbelts because they think; 'Oh, I won't be in a crash. It won't happen to me.' and 'I am a really great driver; I won't crash. Some women don't wear seatbelts because they are pregnant or have surgury on their stomach. That is ok. But all other reasons aren't ok. It is dumb not to wear a seatbelt. My family always wears a seatbelt.

    To other kids: Wear your seatbelts!

    I think that people are not thinking about putting seatbelts on they just want to get to where ever they want to be. I had a friend that didn't have his/her seatbelt on and they got in a serious wreak. So i think people should reconsider what will happen if they didn't put there seatbelt on.

    I think that some people think that the odds of getting into a car crash is pretty low. So they think that if you were to not were a seat belt that nothing will happen. THat is what I think.

    I think that it is stupid and i think they do it to be cool like a ganster or something

    People should wear seat belts to save their lives

    I think that people are just to lazy to take honsetsly 7 seconds out of their day to save their lives. I mean it's really not that difficult. All you have to do is reach behind your back grab the end of the seat belt and "click" the metal end into the part that's attached to the seat... and BAM! if you get into a car crash your safe.

    I do not understand why people do not wear seat belts. It does not make you cool, if you do not wear a seat belt. Actually it makes you UNCOOL, if you do not wear a seat belt! So buckle up! Its the LAW!

    i think people are just being to lazy to be safe. They gotta start wereing seatbelts but it shouldn't be a law cuz its just to be safe. Being safe is a good thing but people get hurt all the time, and when they do get hurt for not wereing a seatbelt they'll learn that it is very important. So inventually every one is going to were seatbelts

    March 8, 2010 at 1:46 pm |
  738. Gabriel

    I think that people think taht they are just so safe drivers and they dont think they will ever get into a accident and another thing is that they are to lazy to put it on they dont care.

    I think people ignor seatbelts because they are ugly not comfortable a waist of time and you cant lie down in them. thats why i dont wear them.

    i think that they should have to wear seatbelts because they can get their kids or others to not wear them and they could get in trouble or even get hurt

    I think that some people choose not to wear seat belt because there stupid and they really don't care about there safety.

    Now I am a girl who listen's to the law and wears a seatbelt along with the rest of my family. I have a friend who's family doesn't wear seat belts. I think that people don't understand how important seatbelts are. I know that some people listen to radio stations that say only a small amount of people survive from car accidents with a seatbelt on. I don't agree. I think that seatbelts save hundreds of lives. Well, the people who listen to those radio stations often believe that and don't use seat belts.

  743. Krystal

    I agree with this Adam boy. I know a few people who think they're so good at driving and decide that they don't need seatbelts. What is sad is that most of the time it's teenagers and adults who think that and what example they put out is not appropriate for their children if they have any. They are literaly encouraging young children to not wear a seatbelt.

    March 8, 2010 at 2:49 pm |

    People who don't wear seatbelts are LAZY. It doesn't mean your "cool". NO one cares if you wear a seat belt or not. It's your own life on the line.

    I think that people don't wear there seatbelts because they are uncomforatble. I think that people think that they are a waste of time.

    i think that people really dont realize that stuff could happen to them, i think people are invincible and think that everything and everyone around them are less than them. I also think that people think that nothing wilkl ever happpen to them (:

    Most people think that there is a slim chance of getting into a car crash, so they don't wear a seatbelt. Some people are also careless and forget to put it on because they are distracted by something.

    March 8, 2010 at 3:11 pm |
  750. andrew

    I think people dont wear seatbelts because they think it is uncomfertable, but if you get into an accident then you will be uncomfortable for much longer.

    March 8, 2010 at 3:16 pm |
  751. Deanna

    i Think the reason why people ignore seatbelts is because maybe they done feel like putting it on as in there lazy or something about them just buggs but i think its a choice to make rather you wear it or not because its your choice to wear clothes so i think it should be your choice to wear a seatbelt. There shouldnt be a law about seltbelts if they dont wanna wear it then they dont have to if they get into an accident its there own fault for not wearing a seatbelt but i think a seatbelt wouldnt matter in an accident because no matter how hard you get in an accident you mite or mite not get hurt even if you are or not wearing a seatbelt.

    March 8, 2010 at 3:17 pm |

    i think that people ingorne seat belts because they dont think its important. Some people are just lazy and dont want to listen.

  753. Oleson

    I think some people are just to lazy to wear seat belts. But you should wear seatbelts, because it only takes a second to put on your seat belt, and by wearing your seat belt it prevents more serious injuries. I think teenagers, think it's cool to not wear your seat belt, but really it's just not safe.

    I think some people don’t wear seat belts because their thinking I’m a good drive and that it will never happen to me, but what people aren’t realizing is that within those 3-5 seconds their saving their lives. If the driver is younger they may think it’s not cool to wear a seat belt, but if the person was cool they would buckle their seat belt before they even started the car.

    March 14, 2010 at 8:48 pm |
  755. maerie

    I think that most people don't wear seat belts, because they have the attitude that it will never happen to them. But that is what everyone thinks, and now look the percent of people that have gotten hurt or killed in a car accident has went way up. And that is all because everyone is to lazzy to take 5-10seconds to put on a seat belt.

    March 14, 2010 at 9:15 pm |
  756. Tabi

    People always think that accidents won't happen to them but what they don't realize is that they are called accidents for a reason. Meaning no one plans on getting in a car crash so you should always take pre cautions like wearing your seat belt. I also think people are lazy and just dont take the extra 5 seconds to bucle up which is totally stupid.

    March 14, 2010 at 9:23 pm |
  757. ger

    I think that people ignore seatbelts because they sometimes forget or are too lazy. People might just not have time to put their seat belt on because they are in a rush somewhere. Maybe they think they won’t be the one ending up at the hospital.

    people dont realize they might get in to a car crash thats why they dont wear thier seat belt for safty. I think that most of the time people forget to wear their seat belt unless someone reminds them to wear it.

    March 15, 2010 at 3:05 pm |
  759. Bobby

    Well there can be several kinds of reasons one being too lazy, or trying to act cool, or being distracted (i.e. talking on the phone or in a hurry).

  760. Xavier

    People don't usually wear there seat belts because they think they're cool and they're not thinking ahead if they do get into a car crash it's over for them

    March 15, 2010 at 5:54 pm |
  761. Jenna

    I think that people don't wear seatbelts is because some of the people are saying, " What are the odds that i will get in a wreck and die by not wearing my seatbelt." A lot of people also don't wear seatbelts is because they might think that it is not cool to wear seatbelts. Well if you dont wear a seatbelt you might as well get a body bag.

    I personally like to dance in the car (Not when I'm driving, and yes I'm sitting down) but I like to move around to the radio, and the seatbelt is a restraint to that, I admit to not wearing it often. I also forgot often.

    March 16, 2010 at 1:59 pm |
  764. skyler

    Some people are to lazy to put on their seatbelt in the law in forcements eyes and in others eyes some people are to short and have trouble getting to the stearing wheele! I want to know though how many people have been actually stoped or got a ticket for not having their seat belts on!!!!!!!

    March 16, 2010 at 6:03 pm |

    I know that sometimes we all forget the seatbelt. But it could save our lives. So use it people.

    March 16, 2010 at 6:13 pm |

    They think their above it. Like nothing will ever happen to them.

  767. Kasey

    Seatbelts, seatbelts, seatbelts, ahhh, feels smooth saying it, it would also feel smooth saying it after you live through a car accident. Why peeps dont wear seatbelts? They dont give poo about safety. Oh the store is just around the corner, or maybe the seatbelt doesn't work! Fix it, and wear, cuz when I'm at home living, you'll be buried in the cold hard ground, dead

    March 16, 2010 at 10:27 pm |
  768. Chase

    Ive seen where someone wont wear a seatbelt because theey think if the belts get jammed someone needs to be free or they are dangerous. Well with our technology why cant we invent something where we havve no choice? Like something that wont let the car start without all passengers wearing one. But I also think that if thy want to risk it then bye bye, your choice.

    It a very stupid idea to not wear seat belts. They are very important to keep us safe from harm. I think there are some people who have an idea in their heads that they will never get into a car accident, others find them "uncomfortable". But all people that don't wear their seat belts are just stupid, its very important to wear seat belts!

    March 17, 2010 at 11:48 am |
  770. Adryanne

    People that don't wear seat belts are just asking to be killed. Yes the chances of the one time you dont wear your seat belt and something happening to you are slim there is still that chance for it to happed. I do alot with the fire department and i have seen what can happen. Everyone should have to see something like it just to show that yes it could happen to you.

    Why dont people wear a seat belt? I dont see why people wont wear a seat belt it can save your life. You can get hurt in a matter of a second without one. So before you start driving you should put on your seatbelt and then you will be ready to drive there is no harm in the seat belt. SO WEAR IT, IT CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE!!!!!!

    some people do not wear seat belts, because they think that when they they role the seat belt not cum undone.

    People say there in a rush, there not cool, they hurt, im not gonna be in an accident. But none of those are true. People think lots of things then never put on there seat belts. There going to regret that and they say "If i could do it again i would use my seatbelts."

    I used to not wear a seatbelt regularly but when my friend got in a crash and the only thing that saved her was going through the windsheild was her seat belt i quickly changed my mind. also i bielive that most people choose not to wear seatbelts is because they can be uncomfertable and sometimes a nuicanse if you have alot of people crammed into one car.

    March 17, 2010 at 7:51 pm |
  775. Bryce

    They believe that they're invincible, and that it won't happen to them. I believe that sealtbelt not wearers (LOL) should be given 3 strikes and after their 3rd strike they should go to jail for a month or wahtever seems punishing but reasonable

    I think people do not wear seatbelts because they dont think it will kill them not to wear one some people think actualy wearing one is more dangerous than not wearing it which is just an excuse. I believe that you should wear a seatbelt not all if your just going to the super market 5 minutes away. JUST REMEMBER ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!
