Seat Belts? Belt Up!
On a long journey a seat belt can dig into the shoulder. Belt buckles are non-standardised and as anyone who has grappled with a taxi seat belt in a rear seat will know, they can be frustrating to lock, with a choice of two or maybe three limp tail ends to be navigated home; panic as the driver insists you have to be belted up and threatens to stop and do it for you.
The straps need modifying too. A pad to shield the driver from being cut by the belt over the shoulder would also help and to cheer things up: despite a standardised design, there’s nothing to stop (arguably) having varied and dark colours to match car interiors, or please the customers.
I got as far as phoning the Design Council who advised me to write in, albeit several years ago .As nothing has changed, I’m wondering whether to write also?
It is rather as VHS video format was inaugurated and A4 paper size or latterly DVD size was determined.
