I was in a real bad smash as a front seat passenger when I was 18, seat belts were not law back then but the old driving instructor, who put all my mates and myself through our driving tests, insisted we always wore our belts, so it had become a habit to wear them. We were in a 2 door sports car and doing about 50 mph when we were hit head on by a large 4 door doing at least 70...Our engine came right through the bulkhead into the passenger compartment! and the drive shaft bent the rear axle. we both had seat belts on, Mine cut right through my clothes and took my skin off, but I was OK. My mate had less damage from the seatbelt, though the steering wheel did come up and cut an artery near his eyebrow. But although the other pair in the 4 door lived, I still cannot believe to this day what I witnessed that night, It was like slow motion, they both came straight out through the small windshield, I watched them soar over the glass sunroof of our car and land like ragdolls on the road over 60 feet behind us. Neither have ever been right since.
So I will take my chance with the seatbelt,,,thank-you
