Buckle Up

It might sound funny, but one of the reasons I took a liking to my primary care provider is that he asked me how often I wear a seatbelt. "Not very often," I said. "Only when I'm in a car." I found his question somewhat humorous because no physician I had in the past ever brought it up--although it is very much an appropriate topic for a healthcare provider to have with his patient. Just think if primary care physicians and pediatricians routinely asked this question throughout the 1970s and 80s, back when most drivers ignored the restraints in their cars and child safety seats were not mandatory.
