I now drive as if Miss Daisy’s in the back, many of these types of accidents are down to speed ... although it’s taken me a while to appreciate that. A sad loss of life.

Speeds not the killer... it's the sudden stop!

That was strong among the Irish. My family arrived in the U,S. in 1863 and my grandfather born a few weeks later. My father (1899-1979) and paternal uncles and aunts all carried rosary beads and had St. Christopher medals pinned up in their cars. I was riding in one in 1948 that overturned on a snowy road. Back seat, no seat belt of course. I can remember waking up in a frozen gas station. St. Christopher got a lot of credit for our survival. I still have that pin.

but of course, he had absolutely nothing to do with it, you were just lucky, thankfully.

Death is one part of not wearing seat belts, but often those who survive live with lifelong injuries physically and often acquired brain injury requiring life long care.

 

Thats surely not a counter argument to wearing a seatbelt ????

 

'Death is better than serious impairment' is a fundamentally flawed argument - by wearing a seatbelt the risk of 'life long injuries and brain injury requiring life long care' is also significantly reduced along with it the risk of almost any other injury with the exception of 'seatbelt burn' !

I was even remotely suggesting that, posters were merely talking death having had professional experience in EDs, I have seen the results of life long injuries (no idea how you managed to get that from my post).

PHUKET: The woman driving the Toyota Vios that overturned on the bypass road early yesterday morning – leading to her passenger being thrown out of the car as it rolled and later dying from head injuries – has been charged with reckless driving causing death.

 

Lt Col Suchat Meelumphong of the Phuket City Police today identified the driver as Chalita Sutthitongtae, 40.

 

Chalita suffered only minor injuries in the accident, but her passenger Netchanok Detaran, 42, was thrown clear of the vehicle as it rolled, leaving her lying on the road metres from the wreck.

OK, the lack of clarity in your initial comment left things open to interpretation, I must have got the wrong end of the stick and your implication was instead... 

 

'Not only is the increased potential for death a consequence of not wearing seatbelt, but so is the increased potential for life changing physical injuries including brain injuries which require life long care'

Speed of the kind generated by a heavy right foot, or a small tablet variety ?

I know that. I was agreeing with one post that it is not only the Thais who believe in such charms.

In this case it was the classic 'can't stay awake' thing.

The driver of the car told police that she fell asleep at the wheel, leading to the accident.

Driver charged, but how much, as she basically killed her passenger by not

getting the passenger to buckle up. Should be years in jail to think about how she 

got her passenger killed.  Oh I know this is Thailand, third world country.

Geezer
