    Default Pickup Owners: Do you buckle up?

    I read in the small offset crash test report that approx. 77% of pickup drivers wear seat belts, meaning that something like a quarter of us don't. I could imagine maybe tractor owners might be a LITTLE more safety aware than the general public, but maybe not. How often do you wear yours? Always? Never?

    I buckle the seat belt when I get in vehicles, buckle up when I get on kubota or ZT mower (both have ROPS). Occasionally I will not buckle up if moving pickup around the yard, but it is habit and I find myself doing it often then too...

    Same. I occasionally move the Kubota a short distance, say moving from inside the shop to outside, without buckling up, but it sorta feels weird.

    If if driving the pickup on roads I always wear my seat belt. If i'm off road I usually don't. I hardly ever wear the tractor seatbelt.

    I cut off the belts in both my kubota's. Don't need or want them. Vehicles, always buckle up. This is Michigan, home of the 150 dollar seatbelt ticket and cops with X-ray vision.
    A couple Kubota's and some payment books.....

    My vehicles never move until all occupants are buckled in.

    Watch any of the Saudi drift videos and that will convince even the staunchest anti-belter to buckle up. Pretty amazing how a human can be FIRED out of an open window when a car barrel rolls.

    Always. Made it a habit to buckle up when the kids were small years ago, so they would know nothing else. I don't have a seat-belt on the Gator on my side, but I did put one on the passenger side for the grand-kids and they know they have to buckle up before we drive.
    I don't use them much on the tractor, flat ground and getting on and off,,,,why????
