Video: Seatbelts are a good idea when riding shotgun on a donut-performing M3

If you’re riding shotgun on a car whose driver is performing a donut, you might want to be prudent enough to fasten your seatbelt. If you’re the daring and bold type who thinks that seatbelts reduce the element of ‘fun’, then, at the very least, try making sure that your doors are closed.

Apparently, the passenger of this donut-performing E36 BMW M3 didn’t read those memos. In fact, he probably thought that he could get away without wearing his seatbelts AND opening the door as the car was spinning both at the same time.

Turns out, he was wrong on both counts.

Continued after the jump.

Fortunately the man was OK after getting thrown out of his seat but it didn’t come without some pretty hairsplitting sight as he was pretty much inches away from getting pinned by one of the spinning rear tires of the E36.

A memo to everybody who’s thinking of riding along for a donut: wear your seatbelts and close your doors. Please. Trust us; you wouldn’t want to spend the rest of your days being laughed at by millions who might end up watching your nasty spill on the Internet.

Seat beats are always a good idea whenever you ride a running car. If you are parked on a parking space or lot, it’s ok to take it out but if you are stuck in traffic, it is still best to have it as you will know what kind of drivers are on the road. Even if you are careful, accidents can still happen and seat belts are one of the things that can avoid injury or casualties.

Lol. Even with the presence of a professional, seat belts are always a must. The difficult thing or the hard part of driving is that some people needs a good reminder, such as an accident, on the need to be responsible when driving a vehicle. Passengers also need the education that wearing seat belts can save lives. I don’t know about y’all but when Princess Diana had her car crashed, there is a pretty big chance that she wasn’t wearing any seat belts. If she had, she probably would still be here with us making a lot of people happy as she always had with her kind heart.
