Yes it is, seat belt is not mandatory in any parts of KA, i've only seen owners of expensive cars, t-bhp members and senior citizens wearing seatbelts in bangalore. Say, about 3 in 100 people.

Even I don't wear it. My trainer never taught me this so never became a habit for me, but I am gradually making it sure to embed it in my head. Most of the time I end up cursing myself whenever I remember about the seat belt, and I am obviously not wearing it.

I remember, In Goa, The interceptor chucked me for not wearing seat belts. I was like Seat belts?

OT: but wanted to share. Seatbelts in Bangalore are rare indeed, A friend was pulled over by a cop for not wearing a seatbelt along with another car. Both agreed to pay the fine if the cops can show them anyone wearing a seatbelt in the next 10 cars going by. If you guessed they walked away without paying you are correct.
Wear your Seatbelt -- it does save lives.

I guess, your daily drive is also towards hinjewadi. My daily drive is between Paud Road and Hinjewadi, phase II; mostly reach office around 8:45 - 9:00 am & leave office anytime between 5:30 - 8:45 pm.
Stickers or not, have so far spotted vehicles of yatinchoubal, meer, ambivalent_98, rahulk76 on this stretch. Check my car details in profile.

Spotted a red color Swift Lxi (KA 02 MB **64) parked in front of shoprite supermarket in Nagarbhavi at around 8:30 pm with a LTD sticker at the back and a drive safe sticker towards the right side of the rear bumper. Sorry for the image quality, it was taken from my cellphone and it does not have a flash . Please identify yourself BHPian.
