In brief: Yes, please!

The spleen is one of the most common organs injured following car crashes.
It is common for the spleen to enlarge with mono; this makes you more susceptible to splenic injury. Wearing a seat belt will decrease your risk of trauma to the spleen.

In brief: Yes

You should be wearing seatbelts at all times.
If there is a condition in which you cannot wear a seatbelt then you should not be in a vehicle.
