Origin and Development

Seat belts existed before the invention of the car. In 1885, the carriages were commonly used in Europe. The lap-belts at that time were simply to prevent passengers from falling off the carriage. By 1910, seat belts began to appear on the plane. In 1922, the sports car on the racing track began to use seat belts. In 1955, Ford Company began to equip cars with seat belts. The seat belts in this period were mainly two-point seat belts. In 1955, the aircraft designer Niels invented the three-point seat belt after working at Volvo Cars. In 1963, Volvo Cars registered Niels' three-point car seat belts and assembling them on self-produced cars.  In 1968, the United States stipulated that all front-facing seats of cars should be equipped with car safety belts. Developed countries such as Europe and Japan formulated regulations for car occupants to wear seat belts as well. On November 15, 1992, the Ministry of Public Security of China issued a circular stipulating that all passengers and front passengers of small passenger cars (including cars, jeeps, vans, and mini-cars) must use seat belts from July 1, 1993. Article 51 of the Road Traffic Safety Law stipulates that when driving a motor vehicle, the driver and the occupant shall use the seat belt as required. At present, the most widely used is the three-point seat belt.
