    My mom made my brother promise to wear his seatbelt. He didn't always wear one. He buckled in and two hours later, he rolled his pick up when he hit a deer. Not a scratch on him. Always buckles now.

    Excellent. I've seen it before and it never loses its impact. Someone did a wonderful job of casting these three people. Thanks for posting it again.

    Wow, very moving.
    coming home from my sil on Christmas, a deer jumped out in front of us. Hit the brakes pretty hard. Husband and I wherein our seat belts...and I also had my 20 pound dog in his. I found this at the pet store and modified it for his size and how my car is built. If not for that, he would have probably had a broken neck.
    make sure everyone you love is in a seat belt.

    Thank you for this video. My little brother, age 31, was sitting in the back of a trailer his wife was pulling full of pickett fences. A piece of the pickett fence cracked off and hit him in the head, knocking him out of the trailer. He fell onto the highway at a speed of 60 mph. He broke his arm, neck, back and tore off a chunk of his liver. He was brain dead and my parents had him pulled off life support 2 days later. Whenever I travel into some parts of this country, in the rural areas, I still see people in the back of pickups. I want to tell them what happened to my brother and how it broke my mother's heart, as well as mine. Thanks again.

    That is powerful. Thank you Ditter for the reminder that everyday we save a life, others and ourselves by buckling up. Be safe!

    This is very powerful! I had never seen this before. Years ago I was driving in Texas hill country at night, not going fast, and 5 deer jumped in front of the car. We were all wearing our seat belts, thankfully.

    Wanabee, I am so sorry for your loss. I share your concerns about people riding in the backs of pickups. It is too dangerous. Everyone have a safe New Year!

    Here in UK it is compulsory to wear your seat belts in front and back of car with heavy fine if you are caught not, but some people still choose to ignore the law. I feel so sorry for the first responders that have to deal with the aftermath of these people's accidents. Thanks for sharing though!
    maker of the 'Oh Dear Jane' Quilt, or should I say trying to the the maker of it?
