    I hope the person is ok but I still don’t understand why people don’t wear seatbelts? Perhaps the seatbelt broke, but it doesn’t sound like it. Accidents happen so protect yourself the best that you can.

    Why is that people don’t get it. It take a matter of 10 seconds to click a seatbelt and it DOES save your life , most times………… When will people ever learn

    I was the one thrown from the SUV but I am ok. I had my seatbelt on but my friend said I unbuckled it to grab something and I forgot to fasten it again.
