Seat belts are not just a superficial detail, but a lifeline for drivers and their passengers. In the event of a traffic accident, the use of seat belts can mean the difference between life and death, or minor and severe injuries. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that around half of the individuals who died in traffic accidents were not retained by any kind of seat belt at the time of impact. About a third of all child fatalities from traffic accidents were not restrained by a seat belt at the time of impact. Consequently, classic car seat belt webbing repair is imperative in classic and antique cars to guarantee the safety of the driver and any passengers.

Since the modern 3-point seat belt was invented in 1959, cars have drastically changed. However, modern collectors of classic and antique cars know better than anyone that newer is not always better. For these collectors, restoring a seat belt is often a challenge, especially when trying to match that seat belt to a car’s classic interior. Luckily, Safety Restore offers classic car seat belt restoration for any kind of classic or antique seat belt.

With each part of the vehicle the owner restores, he brings to life a piece of the past – a piece of history. Each detail of the car deserves special attention to ensure accuracy of the classic car.
Unfortunately, seat belts are often overlooked in the restoration process. Nevertheless, including the correct type of seat belt webbing often adds another level of authenticity to a vehicle. Choosing the right seat belt for classic car seat belt webbing restoration is a task most classic car owners must take on. Old seat belt webbing can be discolored or dirty and date the interior of the car.

Safety Restore has been providing seatbelts, such as the green seat belt webbing, and continuing seat belt education since the company first began. Despite national efforts to increase seat belt use, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 1 out of 7 individuals do not wear a seat belt. Other sources estimate this number to be closer to 1 out of every 5 people. Often, those who do not wear seat belts cite the same reasons – these reasons are considered to be myths.
One of the most common reasons people say they do not wear seat belts is due to discomfort and restriction. However, experts indicate that once a seat belt is adjusted properly, it should be fairly comfortable to wear. Another myth is that wearing a seat belt is a personal decision that only affects one individual. This is not the case, since avoiding seat belts results in a higher likelihood of death. Thus, wearing a seat belt is not a personal decision, and this is particularly true for individuals who have others relying on them – such as parents and spouses.
Furthermore, many people cite the myth that seat belts can hinder an individual’s escape from a vehicle after an accident. This is not true, since seat belts actually reduce one’s risk of being knocked unconscious from the crash itself. One cannot escape a car after an accident if he or she is unconscious. Believe it or not, some people cite the myth that it is better to be thrown out of the vehicle, and out of the scene of the accident. This is a dangerous myth, since one’s chances of death increase 400% when he or she is thrown from a vehicle. Finally, a common myth is that seat belts are unnecessary for slow drives under 30 mph. Again, this is a myth because during an accident, although the vehicle will halt, one’s body, and anything else in the vehicle, will continue to travel at 30 mph. The velocity found at this speed is equivalent to jumping from a third-story building.
Ultimately, seat belts are a lifeline. Safety Restore has been proving quality seat belts, such as the green seat belt webbing replacement service, since it first began business. Although Safety Restore offers a broad range of colors from purple and pink seat belt webbing to green, the company understands the importance of the life behind the seat belt.

Safety Restore is dedicated to providing quality seatbelts in unusual colors, like pink seat belt webbing, to first and foremost promote traffic and accident safety. While many people know and understand that seat belts are vital and preventing injuries and death, they often do not realize how stark the statistics are.
In 2015, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that a total of 22,441 fatalities occurred as a result of traffic accidents. Between 52% and 59% of these fatalities were teens, ages 13-19, and adults, ages 22-44 that were not buckled in at the time of the accidents. 663 vehicle-occupant children, ages 12 and under, died in car accidents in 2015; of this number, about 35% of children were not restrained by a seatbelt. About 2.5 million vehicle occupants needed treatment from emergency rooms for injuries caused by the accidents in 2015. Adults ages 18-24 have the highest rates of non-fatal accident related injuries.
Sadly, despite the advances in technology, accidents continue to rise as a result of distracted drivers. In 2014, cell phones were a factor in about 26% of all automobile accidents. Every day, around 9 individuals are killed by a distracted driver, and about 1,000 people are injured. In a 2015 survey, 42% of teens, ages 13-19, said they have texted while driving. Meanwhile, accidents account for about one-half of all teen deaths.

Found in both the sky and the sea, blue is a calming and cooling color. Blue is said to reduce stress, slow the metabolism and promote a generally calm disposition.

Traditionally, seat belt webbing comes in the same standard colors: black, gray, beige and brown. If one was a race car driver, perhaps he or she would be lucky enough to find seat belt webbing in a color like red or orange. Seat belt safety is no longer in its rudimentary phase; therefore, the color options drivers have shouldn’t be either. Safety Restore offers seat belt webbing in a variety of colors, including purple seat belt webbing.
The color purple has a very rich history. It has long been associated with luxury and wealth. Because the dye and process used to produce purple was costly in the middle ages, it was rare to find any purple fabric and only the elite and wealthy could afford such a rare commodity. Back then, the dye could only be sourced from the city of Tyre (today, this is in Lebanon) from small mollusk that could be found in the Mediterranean Sea. If someone in the middle ages was wearing purple, he or she was assumed to be very wealthy and of high social status. In fact, when Queen Elizabeth I ruled England in the 16th century, she actually banned anyone who was not royalty from wearing the color.
Today, purple is a color that is much more easily accessible, but still carries its wonderful history of wealth and luxury. Now, a driver can even have purple seat belts. Let’s face it – car interiors can look overly utilitarian and often lack any kind of personalization or character. Our Purple Seat Belt Webbing Replacement Service can modernize and enhance a vehicles’ interior, while adding the regal status associated with purple. Purple webbing can match any car’s interior and any model. For people who drive daily, adding a color inside, such as purple, can not only enhance the interior of the car, but can shift one’s mood. If purple seat belt webbing is not the choice for you, Safety Restore has plenty of colors that can match any interior and personality.
Seat belts have a long history, and it is continued today with bright, vibrant colors, such as yellow seat belt webbing. The sensational actor James Dean died in a two-vehicle accident in California’s desert 1955. Experts believe he would have walked away from this car accident had he been wearing a seat belt. After this, the United States was catapulted into a national and international conversation about the necessity of seat belts. At the time, American car manufacturers Ford and Nash only offered seat belts as safety options. Swedish Saab was the first manufacturer to make the seat belt standard on all of their vehicles.
That same year, Volvo began making seat belts standard on all of their newer vehicles. Volvo not only advocated for the safety of seat belts, but did a substantial amount of independent testing to guarantee their claims of safety. It was not until 1959 that the 3-point modern seat belt was created by Swedish engineer Nils Bohlin for Volvo. Prior of this period, only a 2-point seat belt was used which rested across the abdomen of drivers and passengers. Bohlin, a former plane engineer, wanted to create a seat belt similar to the ones used in planes. The third point harness across the torso was added to protect drivers against sudden deceleration that occurs at time of impact.
The United States did not begin requiring seat belts on new cars until 1968. By then, the evidence showing seat belt safety was indisputable. Today, seat belts are not only standard, but there has been a considerable amount of education to promote seat belt use. Still, the CDC estimates that 1 out of 7 individuals do not use seat belts while driving or being driven. Safety Restore thinks this number is too high, and continues to promote seat belts, such as the yellow seat belts, in order to ensure the tradition and safety of seat belt use continues.
Yellow webbing is a spectacular color that can modernize any car interior. Easily seen, yellow seat belts can make it easier to monitor who is or is not buckled up in your car. Safety Restore offers a variety of colors and options, but the yellow seat belt webbing replacement service is sure to both make a statement in the interior of any car. Check out the full selection of options Safety Restore has to offer. If yellow is not the color for you, they have plenty of others to choose from for your vehicle.
Safety Restore offers a variety of seat belt webbing colors, including orange seat belt webbing, to guarantee that drivers and passengers are safe, but also to ensure that the vehicle meets its legal requirements for seat belts.
Seat belts have a long legislative history. While most seat belt laws are made in state legislatures, the United States passed Title 49, Chapter 301 of the United States Code titled Motor Vehicle Standard in 1968. This federal law required all automobiles, with the exception of buses, to have seat belts for the upright, sitting position.
New York’s legislature passed the first state law requiring seat belt use in 1984. Since then, almost all of the states have followed suit in two distinct manners: primary or secondary enforcement. States that have primary enforcement laws give police the authority to pull a driver over and ticket him or her if the officer observes someone in the vehicle not wearing a seatbelt. Secondary enforcement does not allow an officer to pull over or ticket a driver for a seat belt violation without a primary violation first, such as speeding or running a red light. There are some states which utilize a hybrid system, in which secondary enforcement is in effect for most drivers, but there is primary enforcement for certain minors. New Hampshire is the only state that does not require driver’s seat belt use by law. Massachusetts has primary enforcement, while Connecticut has secondary enforcement.
Safety Restore is aware of the legal requirements placed on drivers, which is why we offer colors like orange seat belt webbing. In Massachusetts, a driver can be pulled over for not wearing a seat belt. Using a color like orange seat belts will create a contrast between one’s clothing and the seat belt, making it easier for a policer officer to see. Moreover, orange webbing will brighten the interior of any car. Our orange seat belt webbing replacement service will add a nice contrast with any traditional interior color, such as gray or beige. If orange is not the color for you, Safety Restore offers a wide variety of colors for you to choose from.
Not only is the red seat belt webbing a spectacular color, but its bright nature can assist with safety. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), motor vehicle accidents are the greatest cause of death in individuals under the age of 30. The CDC estimates that around half of the people who died in car accidents were not restrained with a seat belt at the time of impact.
For a device that saves so many lives, seat belts are given little consideration by drivers. In reality, seat belts are one of the most important safety features in your vehicle. Seat belts are the major factor between life and death in the worst of times, and they are the greatest factor between a minor and serious injury in non-fatal accidents. Most people wear seat belts, but the CDC still estimates that around 1 out of every 7 people do not buckle up.
Parents often assume their children buckle up and stay buckled the entire time of the drive; however, this assumption is dangerous. Young children can often unbuckle themselves without parents knowing. This is a particular issue for larger cars, such as SUVs and minivans in which drivers are placed farther away from their children. In 2011, about of third of children killed in car accidents were not bucked. The CDC estimates that over 618,000 children under the age of 12 rode in motor vehicles without the use of any kind of seat belt of restraint at least some of the time.
Often seat belts match the interior of the car in basic colors; however, Safety Restore offers a variety of colors, including bright red seat belt webbing. Unlike traditional colors, the red seat belt webbing creates a contrast. This contrast red seatbelt webbing provides can assist drivers in knowing their passengers are buckled up. This is especially true in the case of parents, who can easily look back in and see the bright red seat belt webbing and know that their children buckled in and safe. Safety Restore makes quality seat belts in a variety of colors in addition to the red seat belt webbing. It is the mission of Safety Restore to create products, like the red seat belt webbing, that are functional, practical and increase safety in drivers and their passengers.
