1. I always wear a seatbelt, unless I move the car out of the driveway, after doing track days and realizing that under hard driving alone you can end up out of your seat. Knowing that I don't want to know what happens when a car crashes or learn the hard way. If you don't wear a seatbelt you're just stupid and asking for major problems or even death. I mean no disrespect to anyone but that is the truth.

5 Point harnesses for everday driving is NOT safe unless you have a roll cage. The schroths (essentially a 4 pt) are okay since they are anti submarining so in the case of a rollover you wont be crushed. Many people don't wear them unless they are at a track or autox. The 3 pt seatbelt is designed the way it is so that in the event of a roll over or a similar event you will end up going down to the inside of the car. 5 points aren't really comfortable for everyday driving as they really lock you in place, if your door is open too far you cant lean over and close it, and they take a while to put on. The 3 point is a great design.
ALWAYS Wear your seatbelt!!!@!!!!!!!!!!!!!
