I dislike electronics, but at least user programming is one perk owners got out of modern cars. I doubt that any cop would give you grief for wanting that chime off: it's disabled in police cars and for good reason. I also always fasten my seatbelt, and that has nothing to do with the law, rather with safety and control of the car... BUT there are instances where it gets in the way and the chime is not only unnecessary but annoying, distracting, and not stealthy at all. I won't get into that here.

I need to unbuckle when backing up into a parking space. That way I can slide up the back of the seat for a better view. The sound of both the seat belt chimes and backup alarm are similar.

Just please don't ever work in government. And a thought: Dodge prevents us from tuning the cars and yet gives us the option of turning off the stupid chime; this is worth wondering why as it's not like they're not liability-conscious. Some people like nannies; some don't. It's the paternalistic tone that rubs me the wrong way. Know your own limitations and respect other people's freedom, eh? Chimes and beepers are for grills at the fast food joint.

Then just don't make me pay for others stupidity. Freedom works both ways.

I disabled my seat belt chime more than four years ago. Amazingly enough, I still manage to religously wear my seat belt. I don't need an annoying chime to act as a reminder. I have known too many people that have perished in motor vehicle accidents.

@6point4: I knew someone would go there. I'm not going to die or even break a nail in a parking lot at 10 mph. Stupidity is widespread, I'll give you that... Read me again, though - I do wear it, especially at speed, and I never needed a law for that. Can't stand the nanny state, the holier-than-thou crowd, or people who answer a simple question with their moralizing worldviews. The roads are littered with idiots that are threatening my life daily and aren't getting pulled over for it - I keep my eyes peeled and don't break a sweat. There's even people who buy a RWD muscle car and have no clue how to control it - they also endanger me, but it's a free country.

Now someone please tell me why Dodge allows the owner to kill the chime. Bueller?
