    Well, I guess he should've had his seatbelt on, eh?

    I bet he's happy that he didn't get crushed or paralyzed under that Heep. It always amazes me how people don't wear their seatbelt. Especially as a driver. In the case of loss of control the seatbelt keeps you in place so you can operate the controls. If you're trying to hang on for dear life then you can't operate the vehicle.

    seat belts do work, i wish i wasn't such a bull headed idiot when i was younger or it wouldn't have cost me so much when i went through my cousin's friends house. i put bucket seats in my monte and wanted to take my cousin to the store to show him how fast it was with the new cam, he wanted to take his camaro. we decided to race to the store when i went around the corner at a high rate of speed my seat broke off( i was in to big a hurry to drill the rest of the wholes in the floor)and i ended up on the floor. DOH i went right through the side of the house BLAM. thank GOD i didn't hit anyone. a seat belt would have at least kept me on the drivers side. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
