    Telling my age but back in high school we wore seat belts to keep us from sliding side to side while sitting on hard vinyl upholstery use in the cars back then. You'd blow into a left hand corner and with out a seat belt, you'd be hanging onto the steering wheel for dear life so you didn't slide over on to the passenger seat.

    Bench seats were great as a kid. You could easily jump from the front seat to the backseat and with the size of cars then, you could fully recline in the back and take a nap. I also remember my parents extending an arm at times so we wouldn't hit the dash while stopping. Looking back, I think that's insane but back then, it just was what it was.

    Same here, I had a scary experience when I Armour-All'd the vinyl bench seat on my 73 Dodge pick up. Later that day I was turning into a parking lot and slid right out from behind the wheel all the way to the passenger side. Fortunately I didn't hit anything but I was "Mr Seatbelt" after that.

    I drove like a bat out of hell in CA while I lived out in the desert. I traveled HWY 14 and HWY 58 quite a bit and frequently went well over 100. I would hear guys from work talking about getting speeding tickets in the 90+ range and NONE of them had any CM's. I asked them why would they speed like that without any protection and the answer that I heard most often was, "They dont work out here.". I was like, really? Is there something different about how radar works in the desert? I told them the most likely reason their detectors "dont work" is because they are either hit with I/O or by LiDAR. Either way, get a RD and some jammers and be smart. It was VERY rare for me to see CHP on the routes I traveled and even more rare to see them using radar or LiDAR. SA is a must and CM's are necessary.
