Sad. If only his attention to detail extended to buckling his seat belt. An important lesson to us all.

Statistics show that seat belts save lives. When used correctly, wearing a seat belt reduces the risk of fatal injury to front seat passenger car occupants by 45%, and risk of moderate-to-critical injury by 50%.

Not 100% but I think my family will keep buckling up

They don't always save lives, there are instances where they can cost lives. Really it depends on the vehicle and the accident. Modern vehicles with adjustable belts it isn't nearly as much of an issue as in a lot of older cars with bad seatbelt mounting locations.

Sadly, he was ejected when his Landcruiser rolled. Had he not been ejected, things would have been different.

But more to blame is the false sense of security with regards to SUVs and poor driving conditions.
