    I seldom use my seat belts, and the blinking warning light on the dash
    is very distracting. Does anyone know of an easy way to disable the
    light other than removing the bulb? Thanks in advance.

    While not giving you a lecture on why you should use your seat belt, I will
    say that disabling the lamp could open you to a lawsuit from anyone who
    drives the vehicle or would purchase the vehicle from you. I will not
    provide advice on how to disable the seat belt warning system.

  4. Why not just quit being ridiculous and buckle up? What's it going to
    take to convince you that's the smart - and responsible - thing to do?

    Sheesh, you must be a smoker... ;-)

    Hey, I resemble that remark :p I smoke AND talk on my cell phone while
    wearing my seatbelt.

    While it may be smart and responsible to use it, I wonder why people think
    it's okay for the government to try to protect you from yourself. I
    understand why they have laws requiring children to be buckled in but if one
    is old enough to drive and presumably get a drivers license, why is that
    anybody's business but his if he chooses to assume the risks?

  8. Because, unless you can guaranty that:
    a).- You will be dead after the crash.
    b).- You will NOT hurt others or destroy propriety.
    c).- You will pay all the cost, from your own pocket.

    We, will end paying for parts of your actions .....

  9. I strongly believe in and encourage personal freedom and responsibility.
    Unfortunately, thanks largely to trial lawyers, the general public is
    more interested in abdicating responsibility, while complaining if their
    freedoms are abridged. They want to be able to blame others for their
    actions (the "victim mentality") and cash in on huge lawsuits. As the
    saying goes, "Freedom is not free." and you CANNOT have freedom without
    responsibility. If people are not willing to accept responsibility for
    their actions, they have to expect government to to abridge their
    freedom in order to reduce the burden their irresponsibility creates on
    society. WE are the problem. More specifically, our GREED is the
    problem. If you want to do something about it, live responsibly and work
    for tort reform that will make irresponsible behavior less profitable.

    What does that matter Victor? Can you guarantee that the driver will not be
    dead with the seat belt in use? No.
    Irrelevant. Seat belts have nothing to do with property damage. Nor does
    wearing one's seat belt have anything to do with hurting others.
    He will - to the same extent that you or I will pay from our own pockets for
    anything we get into.
    What is the added cost to you that you claim? Nothing more than what any
    other accident on the street would create. This has long been a claim of
    those who have no real supporting argument for why an individual should
    buckle up, but it has also long been a baseless point. Simply, if one such
    as the OP has some philosophical hang up about his freedoms being infringed
    upon and all that, then fine, exercise your freedom. If the simple fact
    that seat belts do reduce injury and death does not appeal to the OP, then
    fine, prove it to yourself. Some philosophical points just don't merit the
    ultimate outcome, but the real test of reason is in the ability to discern
