Seatbelt stupidity can be hazardous to your health

Dominion Post

Ivan Segedin’s subterfuge killed him when he was in a head-on car crash while wearing a fake seatbelt, a coroner says.

“Ultimately Mr Segedin’s actions in driving without a seatbelt have cost him his life in an accident that he may well have survived had he worn one,” coroner Carla na Nagara said yesterday.

Mr Segedin died in a crash on July 22 last year near Okato, in Taranaki, from multiple injuries when his car crossed the road and collided head-on with an oncoming vehicle, the coroner said. Mr Segedin, 39, refused to wear a seatbelt and had been fined for not wearing one 32 times since February 2003.
