    HP – as I recall seat belts only had to be worn if they were fitted in the car. If you owned a car without seatbelts you did not have to get them installed – that came some years later.

    Therefore initially it was a `claytons’ law as most cars did not have seat belts fitted when the lawi came into effect.

  2. Well, three and a half, as I didn’t know David Hill’s name.
