Has nothing to do with anything...........If you get in a wreck and the seatbelt was on your covered. If you get in a wreck and the seatbelt was off your covered. The insurance company has the burden of proof to prove that you intenionaly did not wear your seat belt and then intenionaly drove your truck into something, etc. and planned on killing yourself.
If you house does not have smoke detectors and the gas line blows up, they can't deny the claim.........
I am not saying that it is a good idea to drive around town or on the highway without your seat belt on, but there are many reasons to not have it on and the bell to go off and not want to listen to it. I drive around job sites all day and get in and out of the truck sometimes 10 times in less than 5 minutes all while moving less than 3mph. I'm not going to put the seatbelt on for that.
For what its worth, I had the damn open door chime bypassed as well. You don't need that to tell you your door is open if your paying attention to what you are doing. Just like you don't need the seat belt noise to tell you your belt isn't on if you are paying attention to what you are doing.

"wear the seatbelt" if you are a panty wetting liberal who feels everyone should wear their seatbelt because it will save the CHILLLLRENNNN. If it saves just one single wittle baby, then it would be worth it. After all, we should violate everyones constitutional rights and let the government tell us all how to live and what to do. In fact, the government should legislate everyone's personal freedom in order to protect us from ourselves. Even though our country was founded on personal freedom, which includes personal freedom FROM government. To be truly free means we even get to have the right to not have to wear a selt belt if we do not. The true freedom that our forefathers dreamed of and set up in this country includes the right to risk my own life if I want to. I should not have to wear my seatbelt just because some jerk thinks they should tell me how to live. It should be a choice I get to make. Our forefathers thought that personal responsibility and freedom was more important than legislating people into oblivian. Whenever someone says, "there ought to be a law", then believe me, there ought NOT to be a law. These stupid laws may make people feeeeeeel all good about themselves. But every one of these stupid laws is a piece of our freedom being taken away from us. It is way more than just having to put a seatbelt on.

Since when did our country become mob rule. Today, 51% of the people out there somehow get to tell the other 49% how to live. This is not what our forefathers intended. We are a republic, not a democracy. There is a big difference. Look it up.

So don't wear your seatbelt if you do not want to. If you want to wear it, than good for you. But do not feel like you need to tell others to do as you do.
Nerd Rage!

I love the posts on here from the HEROS blasting people who want to turn the alarm off. And then, some one makes a thread on here about street racing, and all they get is praise. I have a way bigger issue with someone racing on the street and endangering EVERYONE on the road. Not just them selves by not wearing a seat belt. And before anyone comes on here and says " i'm the one who has to scrape you off the road blah blah blah"... thats your job. Don't like it? Quit and go work somewhere else.

There are plenty of reasons to disable the alarm, and they have been stated on here. I don't need an alarm to "remind me". I got it. I would not mind if it shut off after a minute or so, but the damn thing just keeps going.

I'm glad the OP asked the original question. I will be turning off my chime for driving on my property and hooking up my trailer. I'm an adult and know to buckle my seatbelt before I drive on the road. The chime doesn't help save my life it annoys me when a seatbelt truly isn't needed. What I could use is a chime that tells me whether or not my kids have put their seatbelts on. Now that would be useful.
