Safety has its risks.  I had a BIL who went over the edge of a curve & down a 
steep embankment not visable from the road.  The car, a convertiable with the 
top down, was cut into and not having his seat belt on, he was thrown clear 
of the car  landing in a creek.   If he would of had his seat belt on, he 
probably would have been killed.  Thrown from the car was of course risky as he 
could have been crushed by the car.  He laid in the creek for about 13 hrs untill 
a county emplyee saw the guard rail broken & he stopped to take a look.  He 
was cut half way around his waist but the water in the creek helped stop the 
blooding.  Someone was looking down upon him.  He survived however he had a full 
ride football scholarship for college starting in a month or so and was never 
able to play the game after the accident.  There are always exceptions to the 
value of a safety device.
