    Hi all (Merry Christmas),

    I live in the UK and whenever people sit in the back seats of my Tesla, the car almost goes crazy if they don't wear their seat belts!! It keeps on popping alerts on the screen and sounding off.

    Is is there anyway of changing this?

    If you keep the middle seat buckled, then it usually avoids problems.

    Thanks. I will try that. Do you know if there is anyway of getting rid of it altogether?

    You can easily get rid of it by telling the people in the back to buckle up for safety.

    Why would they not wear their seat belts?

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^This!^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    With all due respect, I highly recommend a review of the Laws of Motion in Physics. Of note: Objects in motion remain in motion . . .

    Newton's laws of motion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In an impact, the extra loading on the front seat backs by unrestrained rear seat passengers is quite harmful to the health of those riding in front.

    Sorry to pile on, but, really, it is remarkably dumb to allow those riding in any car to be unrestrained.

    I agree with all the above. I was just wondering though.
