I'm so used to kids being strapped in to vehicles I guess. When I was a kid we used to lay along the back seat sleeping and my Mum used to put babies in a carry cot just sitting on the back seat. I don't think our cars even had seatbelts in the back. I'm only just started here and I'm goingtonygardner wrote:what about the sales golf buggys , untaxed bald tyres no seat belts
I remember many times, me being alseep on the back seat whilst my mum & dad were in the front not wearing their seatbelts.
Our Mk 2 Escort did not have seatbelts in the back.
I also remember me standing inbetween the front seats, with my mum having her arm across to stop me climbing into the front!!
I'd like to say how perceptions have changed over the years from the late 70's. However, just stand outside your local school and watch the mums arriving with their kids, you'll see things have not changed that much! :(
