    Not sure what section to put this in, so here goes..

    Can someone tell me the legalities regarding, lap type seat belts ?

    I have six seats, 2 banks of 3, the rear are the over shoulder type as with the driver and front passenger, But the middle front is only a lap type belt..

    Safety wise not very good, but can they be legally used?? Must point out it is a factory fitted belt, and not an add on..

    Thanks..

    Isn't that all they legally have to fit in Passenger coaches now?

    Airlines too!!!!!A bit of a token gesture IMO.
