When I was a child growing up in the '70s , I did not wear a seat belt. I would sleep in the back window or on the floor of the car and no one thought twice about it. My grandmother would drive my sister and me and we would fight and crawl over the seats. Sometimes my dad would even let us ride in the bed of his truck. Back in the '70s it was just normal to see this type of activity while riding down the roads in Texas.
