    How can an adult with sensory issues safely keep the driver’s seatbelt tighter to provide comfort while driving?

    Thank you

    Re: How to tighten drivers seatbelt for special needs driver

    Hi there! There isn't really a safe way to alter the tightness of the seatbelt. I would suggest asking a doctor or therapist about a compression vest and whether it is recommended instead. Or the adult could try wearing a leotard or other tight clothing underneath the shirt.

    Would a locking clip work?

    No, that wouldn't be safe.
