Another grim and sad reminder of the value of seat belts. Just got home from a business trip and am informed that a nephew of mine, all of 20 years old, was killed this morning driving a Scorpio on a highway north-west of Delhi. I do not yet know all the exact details or sequence or who was at fault. But I do know that the young man was not wearing his seat belt. He was the son of a cousin of mine. Very tragic for the young man and even more so for his parents. My earnest request to all BHPians is - always belt up. Even if you are on the rear seat you should belt up even more so if you are on an inter-city run - Narayan

PS: Dear Moderators, please move this post to the appropriate thread if necessary.

Not a pleasant matter to discuss again. But I would like to share some important facts which I discovered today. My nephew was not driving. He was in the rear seat on the left hand side. Yet he was killed because of not wearing a seat belt. I wont dwell on the gory details as it is a sad moment for us. The point I am making is that we should wear a seat belt even if we are positioned on the rear seat. More so if you are on a fast road
