Do you remember a time before seatbelts?

Nils Bohlin, a Volvo engineer, invented the contemporary three-point seat belt in 1959.

Despite the fact that the concept was patented, the business opted to leave the patent open, allowing any vehicle manufacturer to use it for free. This fairly unusual choice was made in the interest of public safety, so that everyone may be safer in traffic, regardless of whether they drove a Volvo or not. This decision turned out to be extremely helpful to the entire world.

In today’s world, three-point seat belts are a legal necessity in all cars, trucks, and buses. The use of a seat belt can be the difference between life and death in an accident. According to reports, if the driver and passengers strap up, their chances of surviving a catastrophic traffic collision are doubled.
