That is why I alway have mine on.
That looks staged. I always wear mine anyways.
Agree... It doesn't look right... Plus, I always have a cam on my dash pointed at me.
I rarely wear mine. My GF gives me shit for it.
Staged or not, I think it gives a sense of what it might really be like. Perhaps I should make it a habit.
If it was real, he shouldn't have been driving half asleep.
"I can make it..."
I wear mine because every wreck that I've been in where the car was totaled (luckily for me it was the other guys fault everytime), I was able to walk away with bruises where the belt caught me. Just from a personal perspective you should always where a seat belt just to simply avoid a ticket.
The three other reasons to wear a belt: some states the insurance only have to cover so much if a belt isn't worn, you may have to be in good enough shape to rescue the other loved ones in your vehicle, and last you may have to fight the idiot in the other car physically after the wreck (this happened on my first total out, I thought the guy was bringing the crowbar to rescue me!).
Not wearing a seat belt is on a par with having unprotected sex and drink driving. Sure, there's a chance that you won't be harmed, but only a moron would take that risk.
humans are INCREDIBLY terrible at self assesment, especially when it comes to fatigue. Fatigue also tends to affect risk assesment (from a stufy of tired truck drivers in a simulator) so it kind of snowballs methinks.
It's not staged. The he was using a company vehicle that uses the drivecam system. Drivecam is a company that offers in car cameras to help reduce the risk of wreckless driving and criminal activites in company vehicles.
Wonder if that guy kept his job?
I think the job is last thing he was hoping to hold on to as it looks like his head was bouncing out the back window as the car flipped.
Where do you get the video codec for this?
The Indeo site wants money for it - like err.. no!
Jeez, I hope he didn't mess up his Dale Earnhardt T-shirt.
Little ironic, don't you think?
Rob, mine played on Xp and Windows media player. It's just an AVI, should be able to get it from MS site.
If this was a setup, this guys an idiot!
Even after the initial contact with whatever it was that he hit, he still didn't put 2 hands on the wheel ! Moron.
We've had a couple incidents here lately where someone wasn't wearing a seat belt.
The worst was one guy going over an overpass at one of the highway intersections here. He got into an accident, was flung out of his vehicle, over the "Jersey Wall" side, and dropped 60 ft to the pavement below. No one hit him (how that happened, I don't know, imagine the horror of having someone dropping down in front of you as you're driving along!), but he didn't survive the fall.
Not wearing seat belts these days is an invitation for trouble - whether due to a traffic ticket for not wearing them, or saving one's life and/or limbs in a traffic accident.
People need a "reason" nowadays to wear a seatbelt???
I thought that it was just common sense and that most people did it without even thinking about it.
Not even, it's much worse. Unprotected sex or drunk driving, while not excusable, can be attributed to impaired judgement resulting from lust or alcohol. No such thing with the simple act of sitting in your car and putting a seat belt on. Unless the excitement of driving to work on a tuesday morning in your '98 accord makes you lose all reason.
Not wearing a seatbelt is simply one of the stupidest things a person can do.
Wearing your seltbelts might seem like a nuisance, but it has saved my life a few times, and once you get used to wearing your seltbelt, it feels really strange to be drive even 100 feet without it on.
Be smart and WEAR YOUR SEATBELT WHEN YOU RIDE AND DRIVE!
Holadem, I was thinking specifically of someone who sets out with the intention of having unprotected sex/drinking and driving, rather than a 'spur of the moment thing'. But taken in the context you interpreted, yes, you're right.
I think it pales comapred to drink-driving. Not wearing your own seltbelt just means your likely to splatter yourself. Drink-driving means you're likely to do the same to someone else.
Drink-drivers should be shot.
