B/c a growing number of people in the US are becoming overweight and subsequently obese. Strapping in while standing up isn't an option anymore for some people

Since we are on the topic of the basics:

If you are one of the people who has to chop away at the snow to strap in while standing up you are just as bad as the kids that sit down, and 10 times more annoying.

Nothing worse than a little snow getting pushed around by somebody else nowhere near a feature.

When I was younger it was a matter of pride that I'd strap in while riding down the ramp, but now I'm old and fat. So unfortuneatly now it's either the bench seats or the dreaded chop, chop, chop.
