There was no damadge to the van since it's bumper took all of the
impact. I did fail too see if I have moved it though. I figured
that if my chest took up so much abuse from the belt it still must
have been a hefty impact. I am sure my face would have had an Audi
logo imprit from the steering wheel if I didn't have it on.
