Rear seat belts
« on: Feb 12, 2019, 01:34:10 AM »
Just a straw poll but something I was watching made me curious.
We have a diverse membership driving different vehicles and I wondered how many had dashboard alerts for rear seat passenger seat belts when used or not..

I do have a red light in the dash for the front ones but don't know if it works for the back.  :-[  Will try it out. Mine also has a horrible pitched beep if you move the car and either of the front belts are not used.

I don't know about my Focus - to date nobody has ever travelled in the back, although I have sometimes had relatively heavy items on the back seats, but nowhere near the weight of a person.

My old banger doesn't tell me anything.. I suppose it thinks.. 'If she can't be bothered to check , why the hell would I tell her'.
 Being a French Peugeot I wouldn't understand her anyway..

2009 Peugeot 308. Lights and annoying beep if passenger not belted or driver not belted over about 5mph. Nothing for rear seats.

2018, Honda Jazz.

Annoying beeps, for the front belts.

A small picture, for the three rear belts. Indicating the unfastened one(s).

Not sure how it works with my Citroen C3, I've had it about 3Ĺ years now and the rear seats have probably been used about twice.

Ours has the annoying beep that seems to get louder if the seatbelt isnít put on .
I read somewhere the royals have the alarm turned off in their cars before they take delivery of them so the noise doesnít upset the driver when they donít use their seatbelt .


I see Prince Charles was caught not wearing his last week .

I haven't got a car but my washing machine bleeps if the door isn't shut properly when in use  ;D
I saw an ad for burial plots.  I thought to myself, "this is the last thing I need".
