Seat belts' history

First seat belts appeared in horse-driven cars back in the 1880s, and this device got patent #312.085 in 1885. It was described as a vehicular seat belt, which prevented the passengers and tourists from falling off the cart (sure thing, the roads were bumpy enough in those days). And only in 1900s, when the first vehicles started appearing on the streets, individuals equipped their seats with such belts by themselves. Shortly after, the car buyers demanded to have the belts installed on the plant. With time, regular 2-point belt was replaced with safer and way more convenient 3 point seat belt. Since then, such belts came standard on all sorts of vehicles and now we may hardly imagine modern Audis without these devices.
