Niels Bohlin
Inventor of the Three-Point Seatbelt

Consisting of two straps that joined at the hip level and fastened into a single anchor point, the three-point belt significantly reduced injuries by effectively holding both the upper and lower body and reducing the impact of the swift deceleration that occurred in a crash. The use of seat belts has been estimated to reduce the risk of fatalities and serious injuries from collisions by about 50 percent which is said to be nearly a million people to date.
