Cars Have Seat Belts NowSo, here we are in 1952 and some cars now have seat belts.
It seems that folks are becoming paranoid about auto safety these days. I don't know what the big deal is. Cars are made of heavy metal. We are pretty safe. It's not like most cars have a fiberglass body.
Cars are pretty big too. There is plenty of room. Who would make a car compact?
What's next? Inflatable pillows coming out of the steering wheel? Those are destined to malfunction. Mark my words.
I drove a car here in Bay City. It had no seat belts. I flipped the car over several times and stayed centered in the seat unharmed. I didn't even fall out. I also drove at the bottom of the canal and didn't drown, but that's something else.
So enjoy your "safer" cars. At least we still have fins on the fenders.
