    i'm pretty sure harnesses are legal...they come stock in certain cars?

    dunno about aftermarket one's though...

    My m8 used to get pulled for mot wearing a seatbelt, when he was fully strapped in with his harness.

    They ARE legal, if you get stopped, stay in the car and DON'T undo them. Let the police officer approach your car and look in,seeing you fully legal and with a huge grin on your face!

    Surely if you pass an MOT with them installed it'd be legal? After all, all seatbelts are checked on the MOT. I think if you get pulled for them then its probably some arsey copper who's having a bad day. I'll have a word with my mate whos a traffic cop and see what he says.

    Hows your arm rest Paul?
