I had a friend years ago who, in trying to teach her kids to always fasten their seatbelts, used to play a game called Captain Click. Whoever got their seatbelt on first would yell out Captain Click.

GREAT topic to talk about. My friend brags that her mom lets her NOT wear the seatbelt, and I said, "Your mom just wants you to be happy. You'll know when you are badly injured, possibly dead, by not taking just 5 seconds (5 SECONDS!!) to be safe and put on your seatbelt. Sure, it doesn't feel comfortable, but that unconfortability is better than just leave the belt alone, a higher risk of death for you." and she STILL brags about it. I'm just glad that's she's safe. *Shakes head*

I am so sorry that's what happened to my friend Jamey as well. He wasn't wearing a seat belt and got killed just a few years ago.

I'm sorry for your loss...
But seat belts really do help more than they hurt. I had a wreck last year in October that totaled my tank of a car. The seat belt burned me, but if I hadn't have been wearing it, I would have smashed my face on the steering wheel. No telling what that would have done.
I tell this to everyone and especially a friend of mine who hates wearing seat belts.

Yes. I agree with you, GinjaHaZ. You'd probably would've been scarred or...even worse.
