    I was refering to the fact that some dope was texting and ran into you on your motorcycle.... maybe he was doing something other than texting. After all we were discussing the stupud laws in various countries and the fact that people are forced into doing/ or viewing things they do not think is right without a choice of thier own. So does it really matter if its "him, her or some dope"???

    just for edification -
    for someone who is a "certified traffic accident investigator and reconstructionist" - i would take exception to your explanation of how to test seat belts -
    - "yanking" on the belt, no matter how hard - will accomplish absolutely nothing!!!
    it is done by a force called "inertia"

    - and newer vehicles also have what is called a "Pretensioner" - which is also explained on the pages i have supplied the links to, with pictures even :D
    - and really new vehicles, the last 2 to 3 years, also have some other integrated features

    this also is informative:

    whole lot more information here:

    and while i'm on the subject, a question,
    have any of you seen what happens to the human body when you are involved in a frontal collision and are "lying-down-driving" [the back-rest laid back so far one can hardly see over the dash-board]
    OR
    someone with their feet on the dashboard and involved in a frontal collision???
    - same consequences
    sure isn't pretty - might be something to think about....

    inertia ([​IMG]-nûr[​IMG]sh[​IMG])

    The resistance of a body to changes in its momentum. Because of inertia, a body at rest remains at rest, and a body in motion continues moving in a straight line and at a constant speed, unless a force is applied to it. Mass can be considered a measure of a body's inertia.

    The resistance your body places on the seatbelt as you move forward is what makes it work, the same effect is accomplished by the process I mentioned.

    That said maybe you should read a book published by JF Michell CD Actar called International Guide Book for Traffic Accident Reconstruction or even Guide to Accident Reconstruction by Jack Murray, CLI, DFE, PhD and JAy Murray, JD. or even papers published with NHTSA.

    As far as this subject goes... I consider it closed.
