Default '03 Civic LX seatbelt reminder beeps

Hi all. I just today got a new Civic LX sedan, 5-speed. I really
like the car except for one thing. I know I *should* wear my seatbelt
but sometimes on a short trip I don't want to put it on. I noticed
today as I drove to the video store which is less than 2 miles from my
house (less than a mile of that is outside of my neighborhood) that
the seatbelt warning light came on after about a minute and made some
pretty annoying beeps. Maybe 7-8 of them, then it got quiet again for
about a minute, then right back to the beeping. Anyone know a trick
for disabling this short of cutting into the wiring in the seatbelt
and bypassing the whole thing? I read through the owners' manual and
they mention this "feature" but don't give a way to disable it. Thank
you.

Did you try buckling the passenger's seat belt into the driver's buckle?
What's your reason for not wearing the seat belt? Because you're too lazy to
buckle up, or because it's uncomfortable?

I wear my seat belt all the time, so I didn't even know the Civic has a seat
belt beep. I know that it beeps right after I start the car, but I didn't
know it would do so after a minute of driving. That's odd, because the Civic
doesn't even beep when my door's not properly closed when driving.

No, and I don't want to do that. I normally wear my seatbelt and
don't need a reminder beep to tell me it's not on. It would be even
more of a pain to be hooking up the driver's belt and passenger belt
and later unhooking them when I wanted to make a trip that was longer
than a mile or so.

Because it's inconvenient for a short trip. I normally wear it for
any trip over a couple of miles in length.

Why is it not properly closed? Because you're too lazy to properly
close it or because it's uncomfortable to close it properly? See how
that sounds? If it makes you think I'm being rude then re-read your
response to my original post.

Maybe just get a clip from the wrecking yard and plug it in? (and hope
some cell phone yakking, durango driving soccer mom doesn't blow a stop sign
and turn you into a quadrapalegic when you get ejected 1.5 miles from home
so the rest of us can support you for the rest of your life - sorry -
couldn't resist the urge to pontificate).

I *think* that the "beeps forever" seatbelt reminder is required by law from
2004 onward in the United States.

Or just ride my motorcyle for short trips and don't wear a helmet?
