Anti-Safety Device

It's a combo seat-buckle alarm stopper and bottler opener. So that you can crack open a cold one when you get in the car, and then drive seat-belt free. You can find tons of them for sale on eBay, where they go for as little as 74 cents each.

They should give these away as a freebie when you buy a cellphone to make it a trifecta of unsafe driving.

I'm waiting to find one of these in a store -- I'll buy it in an instant!

I don't need the bottle opener part. The problem is having to fasten the passenger seat belt after grocery shopping (the circuits think any weight on the seat is a person who has to be strapped in). (Leaving it buckled all the time isn't a good option -- the back of the seat is deep, so bags sit too far forward.)

I'm reminded of Jay Leno's take on modern "safety features" in automobiles: "Back in the day when cars were made of real steel, when you have an accident and hit your head on the dash they just hose it off and sell it to somebody else."

Reminds me of the trifecta mentioned in that famous stoner book that was around decades ago. The Child's Garden of Grass, maybe was the name. Anyway, they called out the Big 3 to do while stoned: eating, listening to music, and sex. The trick is to do all at once.

@Virtual -- I had that book and album! Loved it! "It's a good idea to never get stoned unless you have a girl with you. Unless you already are a girl. In that case, hi there!" Wonderful humor! It was really a time of its own.
