Not to sound like a smartass, I keep my warning off by buckling up 100% of the time. Most deaths occur within 25 miles of your own home at speeds under 35mph (that's correct under 35mph). Most people are not killed on the freeway.

I don't think those stats are right about under 35 mph. Here's some stats from http://www-fars.nhtsa.dot.gov/new_tips.cfm?stateid=0&year=2003&tipscat=Crashes

More than 6.3 million police-reported motor vehicle crashes occurred in the United States in 2003. Almost one-third of these crashes resulted in an injury, with less than 1 percent of total crashes (38,252) resulting in a death. - [Crashes ; 2003 ]

Midnight to 3 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays proved to be the deadliest 3-hour periods throughout 2003, with 1,228 and 1,208 fatal crashes, respectively. - [Crashes ; 2003 ]

Fifty-seven percent of fatal crashes involved only one vehicle, compared to 30 percent of injury crashes and 31 percent of property-damage-only crashes. - [Crashes ; 2003 ]

More than half of fatal crashes occurred on roads with posted speed limits of 55 mph or more, while only 25 percent of property-damage-only crashes occurred on these roads. - [Crashes ; 2003 ]

Collision with another motor vehicle in transport was the most common first harmful event for fatal, injury, and property-damage-only crashes. Collisions with fixed objects and noncollisions accounted for only 19 percent of all crashes, but they accounted for 44 percent of fatal crashes. - [Crashes ; 2003 ]

Forty percent of fatal crashes involved alcohol. For fatal crashes occurring from midnight to 3 a.m., 77 percent involved alcohol. - [Crashes ; 2003 ]

geez man, am i allowed to drive 5 blocks without the beeping? the tension caused by the beeping will surely kill me before a crash at 15 mph.

anywho...sorry i started this thread, as the info is clearly in my manual. sometimes its easy to just ask here for the instant response...regardless, the beeping has been fixed, and i still have the red lightthat comes on to remind me to lock and load the seatbelts, which i always do for a real drive and find the 300's seatbelts to be non confining and comfy cozy with minimal jersey wrinklage, which is nice :)

I shoulda warned ya eudaman.... this is the fourth time I have seen this thread started by various people since I joined back in november. I knew the second I saw it Hemeee would be the first one to jump in. Your lucky though... she and the forum let you off easy. Some of your predecesors got H A M M E R E D by the her and the forum. But stay tuned someone else will come by and start the same post. I promise. And they will get scorched.. :spank:

Anyway, now you know what to do to turn it off and how the forum cares for your well being.
have a great weekend!

That's right Bart... now you know how much you're cared for!! :grouphug:

kid, the minute I saw this one come up again I just shook my head :no: , but since I know Bart, I figured I'd jump in and spare him the beating he was sure to get without intervention... that's why I posted the 2 previous thread links, hoping that everyone would realize there was no need to beat that dead ol' horse again.... oh, well, I tried. :shrug:

Bart, no hammering here :smashfrea ... it's just the nurse and mom in me that comes out each time I see this subject rear it's ugly head.
Again, STAY SAFE!! :kiss: (she says affectionately)

Good one, Zilla!

He,he, sorry Eudaman.

We did try to give you some nice graphics with our pretaped seatbelt lecture.

Should we set up a poll as to how long it will take for this question to come up again?

Thankfully, poor grammar and spelling, though painful in its own right, is not nearly as dangerous as getting cheeseburgers without a seat belt. if an accident doesn't kill you, then the cholesterol will. ;-) Kind of like "if the thunder don't get ya then the lightening will!"

As long as we are on the subject, here is a stat to remember, 1 out of 1 dies, you are not going to get out of life alive. Where you spend eternity is up to you.
