Skoda has just patented a special technology that improves car safety at night. They are bringing LED technology to seatbelt buckles.

This LED solution is embedded within the inside of the buckle, as opposed to just an LED strap around it, which other companies already pushed into the market, and will shed a light with a colour corresponding it being connected to the seatbelt. When the seat is empty, the buckle will glow white for better visibility. However, when a person sits down on a seat, it will glow bright red, to urge the driver or passenger to buckle up. When then secured, the buckle will turn green.
