I admit seatbelts aren’t always comfortable, but we all know safety comes first! However, that doesn’t seem to be the case for some folks in China. Apparently, there’s a market for T-shirts that have a thick diagonal stripe going across the front to imitate the look of wearing a seatbelt. It blows my mind that people would actually spend money on this just to avoid the hassle of buckling up.
Online shops are selling these shirts for around $5 to $8, but the fine for not wearing a seatbelt is around $8 and two penalty points on your driver’s license. With a lenient penalty like that, no wonder why people are disregarding safety!
