I was sitting at a red light and it was un expected..... my hands leaving the steering wheel were my first movement.

On another note on a rear ender when you're hit at 50 kmh there's no way in hell you're hanging on. If I did I wouldn't have when I hit the van in front of me.

I've been in a rear ender where I was at a dead stop, and the VW van hit me doing 50-60. Both my passenger and I had our seatbelts on, and we both came out of it with only some whiplash, the passenger getting the worst of it.

Well then I'm glad I wasn't wearing a seatbelt. I wasn't just rear ended I nailed the vehicle in front of me as well as a result. Other than stiffness and back strain yesterday I'm fine. My passenger can hardly walk.

I bet if your passenger hadn't been wearing a seat belt, she would have gone through the windshield or for the most part nailed the dash doing more damage than wearing a seat belt.

What's the point of this argument. There's obviously a reason that taxi drivers don't have to wear seatbelts. Why is everyone freaking out about him not wearing one?

it's not bad. I went there last Aug and it was 40' and it was fine I wasn't sweating, just keep hydrated. I came back here where it was 30' and I was sweating.

I figure Aug will be long enough for me to save up spending money since I just found out Sat I'm going to be paying $500 for income tax

the reason why cabbies, delivery drivers, garbage men/women, postal workers dont have to wear there seatbelt is because they have commercial insurance, and a commercial vechile in a residential area does not need to wear there seatbelt by law. i could have the same right when i had commercial insuracne on my car while delivering pie's in highschool.

Actually. no. Not as a Pizza Delivery Boy. It's not categorized as commercial vehicles.

Not to mention you car would have been insured as a delivery vehicle not a commercial vehicle. Commercial vehicles are licenced to the specific companies.

sorry i meant delivery commercial. and it isnt everywhere either, only in residential areas. highways and main drags are not included( this is what i was told when i finally did the right insurance on my car like 4-5 yrs ago). for companies that make/possibly make multiple stops on the same block. i have commercial on the kenworth i drive but still required to wear a belt in residential.

made my first real trip into edmonton with my KW, frick all the lil cars that tried going under my truck, i am just going to stay in the bush where the rules are simple, the bigger truck has the right of way.

Because commercial vehicle drivers aren't exempt.
