Seat Belts R a good Idea :doh:

Poor bastard... :D

I had a bad car wreck several years ago. 63 MPH to zero in about 20 yards. Had a teen couple run a stop sign on me on a low visibility intersection. I had just enough time to go oh shit and try to hit the brake. Air bag and seatbelts saved my butt. Broken shoulder blade and shattered kneecap. I shoulda left my right foot on the damn floor instead of trying to hit the brake. :banghead:

Yes they are a great idea, rolled the company trunk onto it's top last year on a dirt road with a sweeping right hander, LOTS of washboard, and in a Dodge 1500 with fricken street tires. Back end came around and it rolled when it hit the berm, crunch.
BTW we were doing 25-30 mph which is the posted speed limit.

1st experience with seat belts
While in college in 67 I purchased a 64 Ford without seatbelts. Were a new novelty bhen. Bought some lap belts and installed. Went on an interview trip to Minneapolis. Wife was along.

Went throug a small town and a woman ran a red light and we T-boned her. The only injury was my wife had a bruise on her knee. If she hadn't had the belt on she would have certainly been through the windshield.

Oh that had potential to be a very messy accident..but yes seat belts are wonderful additions to our vehicles.
