    He never travelled sitting: only standing up or lying down. He never explained why.

    He was "suitably restrained": he would not go anywhere in the way of the driver because he knew he wasn't allowed to.
    So in the event of a crash what happens to fido.

    Weíre hoping ours is similar Sue because thatís what she does in the car she just lies down and sleeps until we stop! But for the van if we canít find anything suitable she will have to lie in between the seats I think,because there is nowhere else for her to sit/sleep

    He hits the dash I expect Trev, same with my dog Eric and the same with me since I rarely wear a seatbelt unless I see plod around. He's been to 33 countries and has always travelled untethered, either on the missus' lap or more recently on our lad's adventure, on his cushion on the passenger seat. I drive the MH like an old woman and if we end up in a crash it will with any luck be a low velocity one!

    It amazes me that you dare to admit this on line it is so obvious you have no respect for other road uses, worse still any passengers or family that may travel with you.

    Be amazed Alf. Life is full of risks. I'm far more concerned about the risk of him being attacked by another dog while out walking than I am about him being hurt in an accident. What exactly is the risk to passengers and family?

    Nothing to do with your dog the fact you say you don't wear a seat belt gives to me away your attitude to your driving

    Thanks ********, fair enough, it's a calculated risk and a miniscule one at that. In line with your driving history above I've driven around 30,000 miles across the continent and I'd estimate a million miles over 33 years UK driving and have never had so much as a shunt "sufficient to even bruise a hamster". I should clarify that I do wear a belt on the motorway or in heavy traffic but not while tootling down country lanes. Life is full of risks and I consider this one to be small enough as to not be overly concerned about it.

    I seen two cars hit each other at 40mph each,the driver went through windshield and then through the other car shield hitting the passenger in the face,not a prity sight,i do hope you reconsider wearing a belt,remember no insurance co will cover you if not,apart from the fact you are bonkers.

    Yes, the chance of a serious crash is small, but the damage would be horrendous. Seatbelts are not much of a trouble - or should not be. After all, you are sitting in the seat. Why not do the belt up?
    I don't really understand the idea of thinking "I'll put it on on the Motorway, but won't bother on country roads"

    the "Clunk Clink, Every Trip" films were pretty good to get seat belts used by the dinosaurs of the road (as opposed to the Knights of the road )
    Just because the Presenter turned out to be a total scumbag doesn't lessen the point made in the film



    Personally, when it comes to driving, I just don't feel comfortable without a seatbelt on. Nothing to do with feeling unsafe, but it is such an automatic reflex after many decades of driving of just "get in car. put on seatbelt" that driving without is just awkward.
