Seat belts wouldn't work here.

In a non too rare Bangkok accident these cars got flattened. A lot of Thai truck drivers don't balance their loads.

My wife was riding passenger and I was driving the ML when we were next to a truck at a stop light. When the light was green we were behind two vehicles that proceeded slowly which left us between a NJ barrier and the truck. The truck, for whatever reason, climbed the curb on the right side and damn near flipped on top of use. Scared the living shit out of us.
