Re: [FWDLK] seat belt question



In Oregon, if the vehicle was not manufactured with seat belts they are not mandatory.  I personally think those 60s 70s cars that came solely with lap belts are more dangerous than no belt at all (I've seen plenty of accident reports where I work).  Although of course the shoulder/lap belts put out now are quite safe, even maybe in our cars, but I think they just don't LOOK right - although I wouldn't care about looks if it saved my life.  Still haven't been able to force myself into doing it though. . . .

Subject: [FWDLK] seat belt question

I've got a question I don't recall being addressed recently.  What ARE
the state laws on seat belts on older vehicles?  My understanding was,
in Missouri, that there was a clause exempting pre-1964 vehicles (or
vehicles originally without seatbelts) from seat belt regulations.
 Don't know if this is fact or something I heard.  Would appreciate
feedback from Forwardlookers from different states.

I think seat belts are a good idea.  I have seen a number of older cars
where they have been installed.  Are they (seat belts) generally looked
upon as a good thing in a restored car, or a detraction from an
otherwise accurately redone interior?
