b just wear the seatbelt
I gotta naysay here. Seatbelts do a LOT of harm. Not everyone can wear one and not everyone wants to risk it. Just among my own friends and people I know in general; 4 females had a breast cut completely or partially off due to a seat belt. 6 people had their throats cut, to an obviously non-lethal degree. 2 had their stomach’s cut open to a horrifying degree that I won’t elaborate on.
Not even counting the uncomfortably awkward belt locations for particularly large, small, fat, skinny people. Females with large breasts get the joy of holding the belt in place or adjusting it every couple seconds.
They’re awkward, uncomfortable, painful, and can often cause the injuries in an accident. Sometimes it’s just better to forgo the belt.
I like not flying out the window, though ;w;
Seriously. You know what can cause a lot of harm?
Flying out the god damn window.
Slaming your face into the wheel or dashboard.
For fucks sake, wear your seatbelt.
Whoever hates themselves this much over not knowing how to adjust a seat belt lmao please get out the car
this is why you should wear a seatbelt
Immortalismortem’s friends obviously don’t know how to properly wear a seatbelt. Or drive.
Know someone who slipped off black ice and tumbled down the Adirondacks. She’s alive. Guess why people?
One of my close friends definitely left a noggin shaped hole in his windshield because of his lack of seatbeltry
I can’t count the number of fatal accidents that could have been prevented easily by wearing a seatbelt that my parents and sister have run.
Also the seatbelt doesn’t just keep you in place. The belt itself is actually a shock absorber for your organs. Your car may have slammed to a halt but your and especially your organs are still travelling at whatever speed your car was at before the accident. The belt stops them from slamming around and rupturing that’s why it’s a sort of stretchy but firm material.
I got into a car accident a few years ago and I wasn’t wearing my seatbelt, wound up with a cerebral contusion (thankfully not a concussion) that left me unable to remember most of the month of March 2013, and a fucked up jaw. Worse would have happened but my friend grabbed me and held me before I could get hurt worse. I was the only one who got hurt because I was the only one not wearing my seatbelt, but I haven’t gone without a seatbelt ever since.
Wear your goddamn seatbelt, it takes 5 seconds to buckle up and adjust it until it’s comfortable.
I had to place a story in the local paper about a local family who lost their children in a horrific wreck. The woman’s suv went off the road and rolled down the embankment.
Three children in the back died after flying out because they were not wearing seatbelts. A seven year old was listed as in critical condition. The survivors who wore their seatbelts were the one year old strapped in a car seat, the oldest teen girl, the woman, and the eight year old.
I had to place the obituaries for the three children the very next day.
So wear your fucking seatbelt.
Alright, basic fucking physics EVERY ACTION FORCE HAS A COMPLETE AND TOTAL REACTION FORCE YOU DON’T STOP MOVING WHEN THE CAR SUDDENLY BREAKS, YOU KEEP GOING BECAUSE INERTIA’S A BITCH AND YOUR MOMENTUM HASN’T BEEN STOPPED BY A DIRECT ACTION FORCE. WEAR THE FUCKING SEAT BELT, ADJUST THE FUCKING SEAT BELT, GET A PROPER BOOSTER SEAT FOR YOUR SMOL CHILD JUST DO IT.
My friend would be alive today if he’d worn his seatbelt.
That’s it. That’s the whole story.
Don’t sit there acting like discomfort is worse than death, or that not wearing seatbelts is the cool new SJW thing with your “it’s really hard for fat/skinny/big breasted people!” bullshit. My fat big breasted ass is always in a seatbelt, and a seatbelt would have saved my skeletal little friend.
I don’t even start my car unless my friends are clicked in. They’re international students and aren’t required to wear seatbelts in their country. I don’t care about getting a ticket, I care about their lives. They laugh, they say I’m ‘momming’ them. I don’t care. I’ll shut the car off if they aren’t buckled in. Wear your damn seat belt its common sense.
