E\ en- time the two of them go for a ride in the car. there is an argument. "I don't want it on. It's too tight.' "It's got to be tight to keep you safe.' She pulls against the strap. "Look I'll hold it.' she says, gripping the silver tab. 'You mustn't hold it. We could have an accident. A policeman might stop us.' 'No-one's going to see me." and she continues to strain against the belt. 'Mum, if you want a ride in this car. you've got to wear a seat belt." The old woman allows the belt to be pulled across her and clicked into the socket. "It's not normal.' she complains.
