Seat belts.

Had a nice old 1954 Bentley in for Mot today, has been kept up together. The owner has had inertia reel seatbelts fitted into the front of the vehicle. The driver’s seatbelt appears to have  been extended, but dangerously by using a friction buckle set up.A vehicle of this age does not have to have seatbelts fitted, see http://www.motinfo.gov.uk/htdocs/m3s05000103.htm however as the belt  was fitted it had to be checked and had to conform to MOT standards, http://www.motinfo.gov.uk/htdocs/m3s05000101.htm .

If he’d removed the seatbelt before the test I’d have been none the wiser and he could have gone away with a pass.
