All of us know about 'Drive Safe', ' Please Belt Up','Belt up or go up' etc., but how many of us actually follow these? Let's conduct a reality check. This check includes driving in city traffic, sitting in a stationery car, driving on a deserted road/land and everything else. Rear seat belts can be exempted, because many cabs and office cars have their rear jacks pulled out.

If your vote is in the affirmative, a big sabaash to you. If not, please explain why to us.

Of course a big Yes, I buckle up as soon as I get inside the car and strongly advice others to follow the same too.

Vote for yes. You wear seatbelts, so you deserve a sabaash, so do you 350Z.
My parents, grandparents and driver all wear seatbelts, thanks to me. Hope your parents realize soon.

EDIT: A huge sabaash to Mukesh too!
Another edit::
Sabaash to RSM too!

Cool , so many like me , i too drive with my belts! But not on very short drive of 5 to 10 min (Pondicherry is small town)
Doesn't matter if Pondy is a small place. One must wear his/her seat belt as long as he/she is seated in the car. For eg: Seatbelts can help save those sitting in a car parked on the roadside when it gets hit by a truck.

EDIT: Who voted for option 3?

In my case, the child(me) gave this habit to his parents since childhood. :biggrin:


EDIT: Why don't you wear your seatbelts, maximas007?
