Curious, were seatbelts required in patrol cars when you were on the job? I ask in part because many years ago, when I lived in Southern California, it was optional for LAPD officers to wear seatbelts in the cars. Then there was an accident where 2 cars collided while responding Code 3. 4 officers involved (2-man cars), 3 killed. Only survivor was the only one wearing a seatbelt. From that point on, then-LAPD Chief Daryl Gates made seatbelt wearing mandatory for all officers.
