Not too sure about that Pauline.  In an accident your bag could cause problems.

better I think to keep,your handbag out of sight image

    How often do you have an accident?  

    In any case, I'd be more worried about the driver and any passengers flying around, not to mention plants if I've just been on a raid..

    I don't go out in cars very often but I can imagine myself doing up the seat belt and then forgetting I'd done it with the resulting embarassing moment when I try to leave the car in my usual hurry.....image

    My favourite party trick is looping the shoulderstrap of my handbag around the door handle as I leave the house.image

    I always loop handbag straps over the gearstick. That way I don't kill my husband as he gets out of the passenger seat.

    If you have air conditioning in the car then you do not need to open the windows.
     Is there a big bag snatching crime rate from cars in W.Yorkshire?

    Yes, I use that when I'm driving in the city image.  I did once have a drunk try to open the passenger door when I was in a traffic jam in the rush hour.  20+ years ago when I was driving a beaten up Citroen - fortunately the road ahead cleared a bit and I put my foot down leaving him off-balance and falling onto his btm in the traffic - result !!!

    When I'm driving with the top down image my handbag travels in the passenger footwell, whether OH's feet are there or not image

    My handbag  is usually in the front or back passenger footwell as are most things.  Not because I think someone is going to nick it but simply so it doesn't all fall off the seat if I stop in a hurry as I often need to on the country lanes round here.  I do have air conditioning but tend to prefer an open window except for motorways or heavy traffic as does my dog
