Most taxi drivers in my town don't use seatbelts. I always use them. Yandex.Taxi (Russian analog of Uber - they actually are partnered with each other so you can call Yandex in Russia from Uber app and vice versa) support gets a lot of complaints from me and a lot of drivers get disconnected from the system within 24 hours of that fateful ride.

I always say: well, what if we get in a crash? My seatbelt will save me, but what about the driver? I don't have a driving license! How will I get to my destination?

I'm afraid that there won't be any drivers left after they fire everyone who doesn't use seatbelts.
