I expect they are the same people that have a dog on the front or rear seat or even on the rear parcel shelf. It is best in the latter position as in an accident it can really accelerate before it cracks your scull.

Not everyone realises that a severe crash with belts on can leave you with broken shoulders and ribs, and airbags have been known to break quite a few cheek and jawbones.

However, if the crash is bad enough to do that with the safety equipment, imagine how well you wouldn't fair if it wasn't there for you.

The first vehicle I ever saw with seat belts was in Singapore.. They seemed to bring them in quite early over there. But crash helmets for motor-cyclists weren't introduced on their roads for many years after all British servicemen and women had to wear them.

I was watching a program on TV last week and I think it was somewhere in Burma or that part of the world. There were motor-cyclists buzzing about minus crash hats and it seemed very strange just watching them. I was half expecting a copper to emerge from a side road and apprehend the offenders.

I must admit I used feel naked if I don't fasten mine and it soon dawned on me that I had forgotten. So it becomes a very good habit

When I was 9 my family and I were rear ended by a sleeping driver. We were in a ford escort van and overturned multiple times. This was the year before the law was brought in to make seat belt use compulsory. We had asked my father to put the seatbelt on to get used to it and he had forgotten to remove it. Forgetting to remove it probably saved his life.
