Celebrating a great invention
This month marked the birth of Nils Bohlin – July 17, 1920–Sept. 21, 2002. Bohlin invented the three-point seat belt that we use today. His simple invention has saved millions of lives – approximately 15,000 in the United States each year. Because of his invention, it is possible to celebrate our own birthdays. Thank you Nils!
