Erratic Driving = Seat Belt Reminder
When the car is being driven erratically then a seat belt reminder alert is put out for all passengers. By erratic i mean one or more of the following 1) ABS system was activated(IE: Heavy braking) 2) The accelerator is fully depressed 3) Or the ESP system was activated. The alert is for mainly the rear seats where the beltminder system isn't used. The alert light could be placed on the back of the center console (where the air vents are) and of course play a chime over the speakers. Like many adults I don't usually wear my seat belt in the rear seat. I think this would show people immediately why seat belts are necessary like after they almost had an accident with a deer.

matt w Like many adults I don't usually wear my seat belt in the rear seat. Sorry this is not normal, most adults wear their belt reguardless of seating positing, In wisconsin the driver is responsable to make sure all occupants are wearing their belts and can be ticketed if they are not. Whats the next step, the vehicle refusing to start if a sensor determines that a passanger isn't belted?
