    I remember being in the back seat in the early 90s without a car seat. Putting my daughter in her seat is a process. Parents were lucky in regards to hassle and I was lucky we never got in a wreck.

    no, I went in the trunk. For some reason, my dad made me put a white cloth over my mouth. Weird.

    Almost never, but now I always wear mainly so that the cops don't charge me for not following the law.. and riding safely.

    I have this nasty habit of not bothering to put on a seat belt.
    I really should pay more attention to putting that thing on tho...

    I never ever put mine on until about a year ago when I got done by the police and received a rather large fine lol. Now I always wear it.

    Me brother and I once got stopped by the police who saw us come up to them.
    They told us and I quote "Don't forget to put your seat belts on, fines are expensive" and just drove off again.

    The car didn't had license plates, didn't had a passenger window, was uninsured and not registered.
    I swear to fuck the only thing we didn't do was drink and hold a phone otherwise they could fine us for everything : D

    Never. Sometimes I'd ask my mom if I could sit in the front passenger seat which would specifically say, on the dashboard, "no children under 13", and I'd feel like SUCH a rebel when I was allowed. hahaha.

    Nope. It was the 70's. Parents could lay the baby on the dashboard, while the rest of us hunched down in the back of the station wagon. Good times!

    No car seats, no seat belts. We died like men.


    But it's not like car seats back then were exactly safe.

    No car seat and no seat belts in the back of the car. In those days it was more desirable to get thrown out of the car than burn in flames :P
