I thought this was a thing of the past,
Crawling on the Motorway this morning, I noticed the two blokes in the builders van in front, both put their seatbelts on at the same time, and as expected, further on the police had someone pulled over on the hard shoulder.
Then just past the police and again at the same time, they both took their belts off, why?, does anybody nowadays still believe wearing seatbelts should be optional?
I can still remember (just about) when you didn't have to wear a seatbelt, and that thick phase I went through when it wasn't cool to wear a belt, (didn't last long), but now I instinctively put it on when I get in the car, to the point where I sometimes find myself wearing it to drive 30 metres across the yard at work to fill with diesel.
Not really a rant, as I'm not likely to get stressed over whether other people don't mind flying through their windscreen or not. I just thought it was a very old fashioned attitude.
yes? / no?
