    no worries I got it ;)

    wow, thats quite a powerful ad, gets the point across without being horribly grusome, one reason why I was always taught to and always will wear a seatbelt, but now I need to make sure the other people in my car do as well.
    In the UK it is the drivers responsibility to make sure everyone is wearing seatbelts, but only if they are under either 16 or 18 I cant remember which, but I always make sure people buckle up anyway. Above that age it becomes that persons responsibility to wear the safety belt, but it is still against the law not to.

    Over here its always the drivers responsibility to make sure everyone are strapped.
    And sense no one wants to pay because of a passanger in his car, people always make sure your wearing a seatbelt.

    The problem is, people for some unknown reason think that the presence of a seatbelt or an airbag allows them to drive like *******s.

    haha thats true in Azerbaijan the drivers are worse when they have seatbelts and airbags in the car, even if they arent using the seatbelts and a fair few of them remove the seatbelts for some weird reason

    Weight saving? ;)

    I can't remember if I've posted this here before, but the idea seems timely so if I have I'll just post it again.

    I was in this when we hit the side of a Ford Galaxy at 50mph. I was a passenger. I received these injuries (WARNING: thats one hella big file which features obvious injuries, and also my boobs ;)). Were I not wearing a seatbelt, I very likely could have ended up looking like this.

    The only reason I leave those images there is to make occsaional posts like this.

    Nice ad, I still can't believe there are idiots who do not wear seatbelts. Kinda like people who still smoke.
