Rest Area 300m

In N.Z. there is a move to ban seat belts of the lap type.

"Huntly coroner Bob McDermott, whose area includes several major accident blackspots, said lap seat belts, commonly fitted to the middle of the back seat of a car, should be banned due to the "horrendous injuries" they caused to crash victims.

"There is no polite way to put this - they are almost cut in half ..."

On Sunday, some of the crew were called out to another fatal accident.
Apparently, three people in a pickup truck hit another car.
The centre passenger, beltless, was ejected from the pickup truck and killed.

The lads reckon if the passenger was wearing a lap belt, she would have survived.
