New Delhi. The issue of seat belts is in discussion after the death of former Tata Sons chairman Cyrus P. Mistry in a road accident. A seat belt is mandatory for the passenger sitting in the back seat. But the question arises what is the provision of seat belts for the rear middle passenger in five and eight-seater vehicles? Experts say that the early models of many companies do not have a seat belt for the middle seater.
Transport expert Anil Chhikara said that seat belts are very important to save the lives of motorists in road accidents. But the question arises that there is no proper provision of seat belts for the people sitting in the middle of five and eight-seater vehicle vehicles.
In models of many companies, there is no provision of seat belts for the rear middle seater.
The early models of many companies do not have a seat belt for the passenger in the middle. Models that also have seat belts for the middle occupant do not have a three-point belt or a flight belt. Anil Chhikara suggested that like other seats, the seat belt for the passenger sitting on this seat should also be fitted with three points so that there should be minimal damage at the time of the accident.
At the same time, in this regard, Lexus President Naveen Soni says that some vehicles have three-point seat belts for the middle ride, although such vehicles come from outside. For the safety of passengers in the vehicles made in the country, flight-like seat belts are fitted, which can be tied to reduce the damage.
