A routine traffic stop in a small German city shows that many motorists still aren't wearing seatbelts. The excuses are many and varied. Many people wrongly believe that an airbag alone provides adequate protection. We put that theory to the test with Germany's automotive club, the ADAC. www.dw.de/program/drive-it/s-9690-9798

      About 95 percent of all drivers in Washington wear a seat belt, leaving 5 percent as non-users. Those non-users make up 20 percent of traffic fatalities.

      Driving without seatbelt can be compared to riding motorcycle without helmet

      What do you expect? It's Germany. One of the main centers of tyranny. They want total control of the people.

      And then you remember some people have been decapitated with a seatbelt. No you shouldn’t drive without one. But you should use a cover for the part that touches your neck for comfort and safety.

      I once cried coming back of a party, the car was more than full and there weren't enough seatbelts, I ended up being the only one wearing it.

      Truthfully though seatbelts can be significantly improved. A 4 or 5 point harness is much better.

      In an ideal world people should all be driving around with racing harness, roll cage, and helmets on.

      I was in a car accident yesterday. My injuries were caused b y my seat belt. The airbag didnt go off. I would have have walked away without my seat belt.

      My friend and the other two occupants in a vehicle got in an accident his weekend. They all three got ejected. One died and the other is in a coma, but my friend is badly injured. She’s got a fractured pelvis and other broken bones. None were wearing their seatbelt. It would’ve been a much different story if they were. I implore each and every one of you to make the split second decision to just use it. You never know when an accident will happen.

      If you can't properly wear a seat belt, stay home and play your video games on the nice, safe couch.

      I don’t disagree with the safety and wisdom of wearing one. I do disagree with the government taking our money if we so choose to act rashly.
      Speeding tickets make sense because you’re endangering other people. A seatbelt is my business though
      Good video btw

      Fail dummies dont have muscle in arms legs body they don't have the strength to brace on impact. They always flopping around like a fish out of water before and after a crash.

      I suppose your username could also be applied to the reasoning used to mitigate any argument against seatbelts based on the test results using crash dummies.

      In a crash at 31 milles per hours between two cars in the opposite directions, your weight is 40 times heavier.
