    Question Seatbelts?

    Just cant understand the amount of people who still drive with no seatbelt these days. Must be 30 years ago since it was made compulsory but most of the drivers you see without them were not droving when you could drive without them. Is it because people think air bags make them immortal, or because they think they they can do what they want, or that they think they wont be in an accident or is it just laziness?????
    So whos prepared to admit to only belting up with the wife nags or you see the cops?

    I must admit I used to hate wearing my seatbelt, then after being scared to death by my old gsi I started to wear it all the time, and every car after that had the warning buzzer anyway, but I do now wear it all the time, plus who wants a fine!

    Vehicle : BMW 525i

    Trim : SE Touring

    Engine : 3.0

    Year : 2007

    Default

    Back in the late 90's I worked for a courier company. The law permitted us not to wear a seatbelt while in our deliver area due to constantly being in and out of the vehicle.

    While showing a new driver around the area, he hit a deisel spill on a corner at all of 20mph.... lost it and we ended up head-on into one of those gas booster 'brick sheds'.... demolished it!

    He had a heavily bruised chest from the steering wheel, I bounced off the inside of the screen by the nearside A pillar and ended up compacted into the foot space under the glovebox.

    I now put my belt on even if I'm just moving a vehicle a few feet.

    SEATBELTS SAVE LIVES ..... END OF.

    No arguement, a little 2 second application of a seat belt or a headbutt match with the screen/wheel! Simple equation for me, it's habitual as soon as the keys are in.

    I give passengers a hard time for the same reason.
