When I was little, my mom always told me that our car wouldn’t start if I wasn’t wearing my seat belt. And after testing this rigorously, I’m still not sure if it’s true – so I always wear my seat belt.
Just recently, I have experienced a whole new kind of mom-superpower: a car that shows which seat belts have been buckled! There’s no getting away with making a “click” sound form the back seat. If your seat belt isn’t buckled, mom will know.
This is a great use of new technology for safety, but drivers whose cars are without this warning need to make sure all their passengers are buckled up. Tell your friends you can’t start the car unless they are buckled. It may feel dumb, but it just may save their lives.
So BUCKLE UP readers, IT’S THE LAW!
