Seatbelts save lives and reduce injuries. Use them.
catgirl,The rear ending was caused by two things. Failure to control speed and following to closely. Both the fault of the driver that hit the back of the other vehicle.
You can dream all you want about that blinker issue, but it didn't cause any accident to occur.
@ SergeantJiggler, rear ending the vehicle was an accident that happened because of failure to use turn signal of driver turning. Failure to use seatbelts and use turn signal was a choice ... a bad choice ... and against the law!
There is never a good time to not wear your seatbelt. They do save lives.
"Driver of Honda does not use turn signal, also does not make sure everyone in her vehicle is wearing seatbelts ... totally irresponsible driver. It is a Texas Law for rear seat passengers to wear seatbelts."
Totally irresponsible to rear end another vehicle as well.
Way back when, I would ride in the very back of our station wagon and motion for the 18 wheelers to blow their horns. Astonishing enough I survived. I used to sit in my daddy's lap and drive the car too. That's a no no too these...oh, the simpler times.
True but every accident is different, way back when before child safety seats where required, the first wife was rear ended on Hwy 87.
If our child was in a child seat as required now... he would have died in the wreck, the back seat was pushed up against and partially under the front seat.
You just never know.
