Glad Dh is okay, I bet he'll be sore for a while though.

My car doesn't go unless everyone is buckled up. Some of my kids's friends think I'm insane, but I'd rather stay home than drive without them.

I saw a bumpersticker today that had the outline of a seatbelt on it and it said, "I'd rather lose a minute of my life, than my life in a minute. Buckle up."

I think that all those people who don't wear a seatbelt in the back seats of a car should watch this video.

I don't let anyone sit behind me if they aren't wearing one!

I'm so sorry to read about your DH, but I'm glad I did, I have a medical note excusing me from wearing my seatbelt, I haven't since I passed my test 8 years ago. This has defiantly made me reconsider and look at what's available to help me wear my seatbelt.

OMG.. I'm SO glad he is ok!! I know how you feel... I got that call before too, only hubby was on a motorcycle when he had his accident. He was ok, but it could have been so much worse.

We all wear our seatbelts purely by habit and we wear helmets on the bike even though they're not law in FL. Accidents HAPPEN!

HUGS to you and your family!!

DH went out after work yesterday with some friends. I was woken up at 1am by a phone call - he was rear-ended on the DC Beltway, and his car is probably totalled. There was traffic due to construction on the highway, and he had slowed down to about 25 mph. The girl behind him didn't, and rammed into the back of his car at about 70 mph. His car spun sideways, and she hit him again on the side. Luckily, both he and his friend were wearing seatbelts. They're both a bit sore, but otherwise unhurt. DH told me his glasses flew off his face on impact - without the seatbelt, he probably would have gone through the windshield.

So I bundled up 2 sleeping kids and strapped them into their car seats, and drove 20 minutes to go pick him up. We had to wait while the state trooper filled out a preliminary accident report, etc. That phone call was one of the worst of my life - my entire body just went numb. Its been over 2 hours now, and I'm just starting to stop shaking. We're really lucky, this could have been so much worse.

So I guess we'll find out in a couple of days whether they will fix his car, or total it. We can't really afford another car payment (DH's car is paid off), but there's a ton of damage. We'll see what happens, I guess.
Your post gave me flashbacks - something similar happened to my Hubby last January on the DC beltway on his way to his last day at work and it totally freaked me out.

My Hubby's car wasn't totalled though it required a few weeks in the garage.

I'm glad to hear that your husband is in one piece and I hope he's not hurting too badly today.
