Interesting facts about seat belts

  1. The concept of the seat belt predates the automobile. The idea originated in 1840 when Sir George Cayley wrote about a safety mechanism for trains and suggested a "broad padded belt to be placed in front of each passenger."
  2. Why your seat belt always gets stuck. A seat belt uses a retractor that is designed to lock up in case of a sudden jerk.
  3. Airline seat belts aren't made equal. Airline seatbelts need a seat belt extender to get in the seat safely. It is an older design but can be taken off quickly and has less risk of accidental pressings.
