    I remember a time when you had to specify whether you wanted your car to have seat belts or not. Much less something as ludicrous as car seats for your children.

    We used to ride in the back of a pickup truck all the way from Southern California to visit relatives in North Dakota & Wisconsin. Never forget one time when we’re rolling the down the highway, Mom and Sis asleep and dad focused on the boring Utah highway–I reached over the tailgate and felt the spinning tire with my fingertips. When I pulled my hand back they were black, and I was looking around for something to wipe them on, because I was sure I was busted.

    I must have been 6 or 7 years old then. I was 38 when I finally admitted it to my parents and they *still* got irrational about it.

    I dated a guy that never wore his seatbelt because “it’s been proven more people receive injuries from wearing seatbelts in car accidents than people not wearing one”.

    Well yea, that’s because the people not wearing seatbelts died.

    My grandma had a car when my dad was a little kid that didn’t have seatbelts and also had doors that didn’t always stay closed. His brother still likes to tell the story of how he rescued my dad from falling out when their mom took a corner too fast and their door swung open. Dad apparently slid across the seat and nearly out the door, but his older brother grabbed him by the hair.

    I’m pretty sure this is why my grandma was paranoid about being buckled up even to drive across the property when I was growing up.

    In the 70’s I remember my neighbor, a Nurse, forcing us to wear the seatbelts in her car. We all thought she was crazy.

    My Dad would drive us the our summer shack, kids standing in the back seat to have a better view, while drinking beer after beer.

    Picturing that seat in even a small impact is terrifying. That kid is just going to fold in half, or go flying.

    Back in the early 80’s me and my brother would stand up in the back seat, or even lay on the back dashboard. 80’s didnt give a fuck.

    I was born in 1968. I never sat in a baby carrier or car seat. Neither did my sister or brother after me. The youngest brother, (4 of us all together) had something similar to this in 1973. It was probably a hand-me-down from an aunt. I started using seatbelts in 1990 after my son was born. He had the most expensive car seat available at the time.

    We used to go to a nearby drive-in (they were actually outdated by then but we had one anyway. Still open actually. It’s great), fall asleep in the back of the station wagon with the back seat down so it was just a big open space, and my parents would just drive home with us sprawled out unconscious in the back.

    That pictured child seat is an amazing safety improvement.

    When I was a kid the only restraint system we had was my mom’s/dad’s right arm extended horizontally.

    We used to drive the country in our motorhome back in the day, late 70’s early 80s. I had an orange stool I used to ride on that would sit right in the middle of the front. If we braked hard I’d grab onto the bunk rail above and swing out towards the window.
    The whole reason I’d be their was so I could pour drinks for my mom and step dad. Rum and cokes. They’d also have me fetch snacks and smokes from the fridge.
    I look back on this and wonder how I didn’t end up a raspberry streak on the highway. They both drank a forty on a drive and chained smoked.
    Good times.

    My mom had a really old car after her divorce with my dad and not only no seatbelts but at least one foot-wide rusted hole in the floor of the back seat. Could see road going by. Whichever was sitting back there had to keep our feet on the seats. Those too were the days.

    Homie, we had a 1972 Ford LTD (Land Barge Edition). That son of a bitch was so big that there was plenty of room for a kid to ride, say, all over the southeastern US on road trips on the speaker deck behind the back seat. I rode thousands of miles back there, accident free, while enjoying the panoramic scenery and my Conan comic books.

    The very thought of it terrifies me these days.

    Modern car seats and restraint systems are incredible. I have been to many “jaws of life” jobs and watched with baited breath as the car was basically un-bended around the child seat and had the kid be fine. I worked for a short time with life-flight and arrived to a car that had basically been torn to ribbons and ended up killing the driver. As I was attempting to access the patient I noticed a diaper bag in the snow, all out panic went into seeking this child that may or may not have even been there. A State Trooper found the child ejected in the seat in a pine tree about 20 feet in front of the car. Besides being very cold and very scared the baby was fine, if memory serves he was 11 months and just shy of his birthday. The seat and the car seat and the floor board basically came apart in a unit. If the child wasn’t properly secured things would have been very, very different.

    Anyone else remember bouncing around in the back of a station wagon on long family trips, a ready-made, forward launching projectile in the event of a front end collision? Good times!

    I remember being in a car accident when I was about five (late 1970’s). I went from sitting in the back seat to being lodged under the glove box in about 1/2 a second. I remember thinking it was really funny. Luckily I was tiny and bouncy so no damage was done. There wasn’t even a question of seat belts or anything back then.

    Yeah, those car seats weren’t made to protect the baby, they were made to keep the baby from rolling around the car squashing the bread and bananas on the way home from the market…

    I get that they just didn’t have the technology we have today, but can’t any averagely rational human look at that shiny metal bar that’s directly in front of that unrestrained baby’s head and realize there’s a good chance the two are gonna meet if you even tap the brakes? I mean, were people just….dumber?

    We had a 1966 Chevy pickup. The gas tank was in the passenger compartment. None of us should be here.

    I can remember when no one at all wore seatbelts. Also, my mother would let me stick my head out the window like a dog while we rode down the interstate.

    Looking back, I think she was trying to kill me.

    You would put the child on your lap and it would act as a sort of airbag for the parent.

    I grew up in the country and when you left your house it was common to close your gate in case cattle got in and tore up your garden.

    When we would get back from town, one of the kids would always get out to open the gate. Whoever got out would get to climb up onto the bonnet, hold onto the wipers, and whichever parent was driving would speed up the driveway.

    It was great fun but so dangerous when I think back on it. I would never do that now.
