Good morning ladies.
I'm writing this just as a reminder to be safe.
I was just in Mexico last week and for some reason, whenever I'm NOT in America and on shuttle vans I never wear my seat belt. It appeared that nobody in my shuttle van did. Some vans don't even have seat belts!
BUT, if your van has seat belts, PLEASE put them on!
As we left the Cancun airport on our way to fun and sun, we got into a car accident. Nobody in our van was wearing seat belts, but thankfully nobody was badly hurt.
Accidents can happen at any time, including when you're on vacation. So please, buckle up! :)

      Thanks so much for this reminder! As I think about it now, I always buckle up anywhere in the US but the minute I step into the Caribbean I don't think twice about buckling up at all!

      Glad to hear that you weren't hurt!!!

          Thank you for this! I'm the same way--almost never buckle up in other countries. And it shouldn't be that way.

            Isn't it crazy how we wear our seat belts religiously here and then when we're on vacation we don't even bat an eye at it?

                Thanks for the reminder and glad the accident didn't ruin your vacation!

                I find I never put on my seat belt in a taxi either - and if anywhere - that is where I should be wearing it!
