Before seat belts.
Today I was pssing by my youngest son as he stood on the couch watching television. Just seeing his stance brought back memories of how cars used to not have seat belts. Most cars were bench type seating and us kids would stand to kind of brace ourselves and to be able to see out the windows. This was in the late 60's and early 70's . I remember sitting in a car seat more for convenience than safety as a 1 or 2 year old. It was the kind that had these hooks on the back that went over the seat to hold the seat in place. Hardly safe! I remember some of our cars did not have seat belts. Then when they starting coming with them, we didn't think anything of not wearing them. HORROR! Today-- I wouldn't dream of not making my kids or myself wear a seatbelt. My how times change.
