Why seat belts are important
One of my coworkers sent me the link to this video today. Warning, it shows a surely fatal accident, but it isn't gory.

(Speaking of co-workers, it is kind of funny how many of them read this.)

At the moment, yes. I should be done soon, then I intend to hit Harry's for dinner.

And this is why you don't speed. :p If you drive that badly, a seat belt may not even save you.

Don't be an idiot out there!

I think "Don't try to run from the cops, especially in an SUV" applies as well.

I just don't understand...

how people ever thought that a massive body bolted on _top_ of a jacked-up truck frame was going to be safer than a regular car with its lower center of gravity. This guy slides up against a station wagon and his day is done - he quickly loses all control, and it's the width of the SUV and its willingness to roll over like a trained terrier that does him in.

SUV = The Death.

Running from the cops was a bad idea too, of course ^_^

Watch it again. Just as the SUV starts to roll, the driver is ejected and flung well past the SUV into oncoming traffic.

I missed that the first time.
