Two questions

Some douche who use to bang strippers and strippers only told me ages ago two things I don't agree with, totally.

1. Seatbelts do far more harm than good. Seatbelts will make an accident a fatality.

2. ABS kills. I'll say it again ABS kills. It's true.

Do any of you not wear a seatbelt because of safety concerns? What is everyone's view on ABS. I like ABS, I had two cars that were not ABS and stuff happened. I also got in 3 accidents and the seatbelts helped me, but the airbag (twice driver, once passener. Saved my head going out the window.

    If you're going so fast that a seatbelt can cause a fatality then you're going fast enough to be turned into mince meat without a seatbelt. At that point it's just up to you if you want an open casket funeral or not. ABS is 50/50 if it'll work in your favor or not, like it'll save your ride/life if the stars align and the perfect conditions are met.

    Couple months ago I was in an accident, dude ran me off the road, went through a ditch, hit a culvert, went airborne- and into a tree at ~55mph.
    Walked away from it completely unscathed, minus bruises on my chest from the seat belt. Would have absolutely gone through the windshield otherwise.

    >ABS kills
    Illiterate boomer lore from people who don't understand how it works. IT DOES NOT ACTIVATE EVERY TIME YOU TOUCH THE BRAKE PEDAL. YOU CAN IN FACT THRESHOLD BRAKE PERFECTLY NORMALLY IN AN ABS EQUIPPED VEHICLE. Yes, an engaged ABS system stops MARGINALLY WORSE than a good driver who avoids locking up their tires when emergency braking. Even with a ton of performance driving experience, though, it's still a really nice safety net for the "oh shit" of a deer running in front of you or other such scenario. 2010s-onwards ABS should really never be noticed aside from trying to brake suddenly on snow or ice.

      no it don't lol, unless you know a race car driver that threshold brakes every individual tire within a frequency of 300 times per second

        not the other anon, but ABS is typically worse than non ABS in a straight line and a good driver.(pic related)
        ABS doesn't use 100% of the tires grip to brake.
        it keeps everything at about 95% so ppl still have some grip to turn.

        however, throw in a bit of steering angle or uneven pavement; and ABS wins every time.
        as a driver, I cannot bias brake pressure at individual corners.
        That's why my race car now has ABS.
        sure I can hit my braking zone at 150mph and not activate the ABS, but hit a bump or old pavement on one side, and the ABS will activate.
        it's simply faster.

    He's wrong on both counts. Here's the reality:
    -Seatbelts do far more good than harm.
    -ABS saves lives
    Basic facts. ABS can be worse in snow, but generally is safer 99.99% of the time. I disabled mine because you have to disable ABS to get stability control off, but ABS is way way safer. I'd love ABS-only cars to return again (stability control was mandated in 2012ish).
    I hate authority and law more than the next guy, but not wearing a seatbelt just to "stick it to the man" is not just silly, but dumb.

      I can honestly see traction control being less safe, unless you’re a moron. I’ve emergency braked before without ABS and pumping the brakes felt instinctual and natural, so not sure how beneficial ABS is, but the drawback is minimal so I don’t really mind it.
      Problem is that all of these mandated safety features improve safety for morons while decreasing safety for anyone competent. Try sliding around a slalom in the rain with DSC on. It’ll react about half a second too slowly, and actually attempt to throw you in the wrong direction because you’re now going the other direction. So instead of missing that obstacle on the road, you now collide with it.

        >Problem is that all of these mandated safety features improve safety for morons while decreasing safety for anyone competent.
        Yes, absolutely on all points. When I flick and mash the throttle I intend to oversteer, not understeer into a tree.
        I've driven without ABS for longer (again, to disable stability / traction control), and only done track days without ABS, and would choose ABS by itself every time. It's not like there's one threshold point, it changes with speed and tire/brake temp. The threshold point changes by the millisecond, so threshold braking is not as easy as most on the internet claim it is.

    I survived a high speed rollover with 4 dudes in a Honda Accord. The driver- the only one not wearing a seatbelt- was the only fatality, he went out the sunroof on the second or third roll.

    I was an EMT and have seen some fricked accidents where people were up and walking around, they wore their seatbelts. I've seen some relatively minor accidents where people had a cracked skull, they did not wear their seatbelt. I've seen bad ones where people were dead that did not wear their seatbelt. Wear your seatbelt, in all fricking cases.

    ABS is about the only safety feature I want in a car. Holy shit you're moronic.

      airbags are way too sensitive and should not go off at speeds below 50mph/80kmh, nor should they go off unless the collision is severe enough to begin bending the frame rails behind the body panels.

        There’s good reason to believe, using NHSTA’s own data, that airbags are more dangerous than nothing. I think the only case where they’re clearly better is low speed accidents without a seatbelt iirc (assuming they aren’t takata airbags that’ll murder you).

            Airbags were pretty rare in parts of Europe even in the late 90s and when they started becoming common, they had way less effect on accident deaths than mandatory seatbelts did (afaik).
            I suppose the bags might prevent some injuries from heads or limbs smashing against things, especially if the person's sitting in a way that prevents the belt from working fully, but I think I'd rather sit properly in the seat than bet on the bags catching me.

            Yeah. There were seatbelt laws in the US, in at least the early 90s but they were add-ons for other violations. When people started getting pulled over just for not having a seatbelt, airbags stopped serving the function of saving people who didn’t wear seatbelts and just became a pain in my neck.

            did they rebuild that?

            I don’t think so. Hope someone is keeping their eyes peeled.

            You anons are moronic, airbags are a SUPPLEMENTARY RESTRAINT SYSTEM. They aren't meant to replace a seatbelt but to work with it instead. They can in fact become deadly if you're not wearing your belt. That's why seatbelt detection was front occupant only at first.

      Isn't this why most newer cars automatically floor the brakes if the car takes enough of a hit to trigger the airbags?
      It's safer on average to just stop anywhere as fast as possible since the driver's going to be at least very distracted, if not physically incapacitated by the impact.

    ABS is great, problem is that the vast majority of drivers don't know how to use it properly. But that doesn't mean the feature is bad, just that drivers are poorly educated. Arguing against seatbelts is just moronic.

    The douche you talk about should be shot to death, because everything he said is fake information. If seat belt turns accident to fatal then 99% of those cases the seat belt wasn't adjusted or used properly. Alternatively if its 2017-2019 Seat Arona, Seat Ibiza, Volkswagen Polo then a driver side rear seat belt lock faulty design that caused seat belt lock to open itself during higher speed hard cornering or emergency brake from high speed. 2001+ years cars ABS doesn't kill, it reduces crashes if the system works properly, brakes are in good condition and brake fluid isn't too old. No any safety system or best traction tires can prevent deadly accident from happening if the driver is speeding too fast for the situation. You always have to drive slower in winter time than you can do in summer time even if you had worlds best winter tires or most powerful brakes for your car.

    I installed a BMW M3 ABS in my race car.
    And I tell you that it's definitely a game changer when it comes to breaking performance.
    sure the overall peak breaking G-Force isn't as high, But the average G forces are so much higher.
    that and the ability to bias brake pressure on an individual tire basis.
    I can trail brake incredibly hard and not lock up any tires.
    simply not possible without that ABS unit.

      Nh is crazy but its a good example of how things could be if states weren't so densely populated with angry people everywhere. There's virtually no hoops to jump through for firearms as a whole, and a concealed carry permit is issued to literally anyone except documented trigger happy maniacs. Cars are basically free to be modified in any way you want and cops never bother anyone for anything, whether thats for better or for worse. Its truly live free or die

    I and my CO (the USAF has troops from other units investigate accidents) inspected a rollover vehicle where everyone wore belts but the subsequently dead driver. He was a good lad so the partial case of beer and empty cans disappeared.

    Being a mechanic and salvage yard guru for several decades I use and advocate belts and bags. Baglessness results in stuff like the pickup truck windshield I saw with two rather neat face prints that still had blood and hair.

    The gear works but feel free not to use/wear it. Since humans become projectiles anyone in my rides is belted or GTFO. Tech illiterates do not impress me.
