Julie, slam on the brakes at highish speed next time he doesn't wear his seatbelt, just enough to make him lightly bop his head and then say 'imagine that at xmph instead of the speed I was just going.'
BTW Bobi be prepared for his shoulder to be sore tomorrow or day after (and way cool bruises on shoulder and sides of both hips).

Oh Robyn! How scary!! I'm so glad he and his friend are ok. How was the girl that hit them? I hope it they total the car, you get a good sized check to put down on a new car.

Big Bear Hugs...

Ok.. Having driven on the beltway I know how insane it is. My kids were in VA when dsin-law was stationed there.

Main thing DH is safe. I'm keeping paws crossed that her insurance will replace car.

Be sure and have DH checked out by a DR. Even though HE says he's ok.. it is better to know now, than to try to file an insurance claim later.

His body may still be in a type of shock and he isn't aware of pains & or neck or back injury.

Big Bear hugs again.

Wow! I'm glad he's okay. The car is a minor thing in the grand scheme of things. God will provide...

ugh. i used to live there. traffic drives SOOOOOOOOO fast, and so close together. no one gives ANY space between cars. if you try to leave room between yourself and the car ahead, someone cuts in. i can just imagine how fast and hard she hit him.

he will probably be super sore today. muscles tend to be more sore for the next day or 2 after the accident, rather than right away. if he's hurting, he really should go get checked out. it will help in the insurance settlement as well b/c you can establish any muscular strains.

here's hoping you ALL recover quickly.

I'm glad they're ok. Could have been a lot worse. It only took one trip through a windshield for me to learn to strap in.

He really should be checked out by a doc just to make sure there aren't any injuries.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

Oh how scary! I am so glad that he is safe at home.

I agree with knitting guy. Go see a doc for followup just to cover your bases, especially if a bruise is showing up over the area of the seatbelt.
